Turkey in the Straw Muffin Tin Monday

How do you have Thanksgiving for breakfast?  I decided to adapt a toad-in-the-hole for this one.  So rather it's a turkey-in-the-hole.  Only I added hash browns.  And then I thought it was a turkey in the straw.  And then I had that silly square dancing folk song in my head.  Not that I square dance.  Or dance at all.  But I know the song. 

Turkey in the straw is crafted from bread, an egg, carrots, olives, and (oh so appropriately) turkey bacon.  The 'turkey feet' muffin cups contain roasted pumpkin (to make it all Thanksgivingy, only the pumpkin didn't have much flavor - not sure if it's because it was a small pumpkin or if it's because it had been sitting out on our porch for 2 weeks) and the toast from the hole.

For more fun playing with food ideas, go visit Muffin Tin Mom.


Pick 'em up, shake 'em up, any way at all and hit up a tune called 'Turkey in the Straw'!

Love the turkey egg and the hash brown straw was a great idea. Fortunately I know of the song, but I don't know the words, so I won't be singing it.
Those turkey muffin cups are so cute. They just completed the meal.

How cute. But it looks tasty too!
I hope you have a lot of young mothers who follow you, because you have so many creative ideas to share.

Love your fun toad in the hole/turkey in the straw breakfast!! Your footed cupcake molds always make me think of Baba Yaga and her chicken-legged-house that can run through the forest. (A Russian fairytale)
Your boys might enjoy that story.

Sugary Flower said...

Hee hee - I don't know the song, but I love your turkey! I'm thinking that with a couple of changes it would make a nice chicken at Easter, too!
