D and I have been working on a bird unit study to go with the Burgess Bird Book, and this easy 5 minute bird’s nest breakfast was the first recipe I surprised him with this week to launch the project! You can make breakfast for the entire family quickly and easily, and using whatever fruit you have around (as long as at least one of them is melon).
I’ve made a printable recipe card for you so that you don’t have to leave your laptop near a bunch of fruit juice!
Here are the steps quickly:
Take your cut-in-half melon and cut out a good chunk of the flesh. Slice the flesh into slices roughly 1/2 inch thick and use your egg cookie cutter to make a pile of eggs for your family’s bird’s nest breakfast.
Slice your next fruit about the same and cut out more eggs.
Take your last fruit (in this case, pineapple) and cut it a little bit thicker if possible. Use your bird cookie cutter to create a bird for each “nest”.
Add about half a cup of Gay Lea Nordica cottage cheese to your melon “nest” bowl and arrange your eggs and bird. Add your additional toppings if you’re using them, or serve with whole grain toast to round out a healthy and playful breakfast.
Why Gay Lea Nordica cottage cheese?
- Gay Lea’s Nordica Cottage Cheese is made from 100% Canadian dairy milk?
- High in protein. Just 1/2 cup provides 15g of protein that is low in fat.
- A great source of calcium
- Gluten and nut free
