Looking for a simple but sweet breakfast to feed your kids this Thanksgiving morning? Look no further than the Cinnamon Roll Turkey. It’s an Instagram-worthy breakfast that comes together in 30 minutes or less, and kids of all ages can help in the preparations.
To make the Cinnamon Roll Turkey, all you need is a package of Pillsbury Cinnamon Rolls (or similar brand), pretzel sticks, candy corn, candy eyes, small chocolate multi-colored candies — and bacon!
Watch this short step-by-step video to learn how to make your own Cinnamon Roll Turkeys:
As you can see, you just follow the instructions on the cinnamon roll packaging. Just remember to tuck the end of the dough into the middle of the roll! This creates a kind of “tail.” You then complete the tail by breaking up cooked pieces of bacon and sticking them into the cinnamon rolls once they’re done cooking.
(Hint: You can cook the bacon in the oven at the same time as the cinnamon rolls, as the oven will be warm anyway and it will save you from cleaning up a grease-splattered pan.)
The candy eyes, candy corn and multi-colored candies all help to give your Cinnamon Roll Turkey an adorably delicious face, and the pretzel sticks make for a nice, cozy nest for your little guy.
One problem: These Cinnamon Roll Turkeys might be SO cute that your kids won’t want to eat them! But we think the scintillating smells of cinnamon and bacon might be too tempting to resist.
