Barnyard Bagels

Happy Wednesday, friends!

I’m so sorry I’ve been absent these past couple of weeks. We’ve had a lot going on around here, including vacation, an inspection on our new home, putting our current home on the market and potty training. It’s a lot and I’ve had many moments of stress, but I’m so thankful for all of the blessings God has given our family, I see His beautiful works among the hustle and bustle we’ve been going through.

Now that I’ve rambled on, let’s talk food. Last month, I got to put together the cutest menu for Kids Night In. For those of you who don’t know, Kids Night In is a monthly subscription box for kiddos to enjoy activities at home with their parents and/or siblings. Each month is a different cute and fun theme that comes with a book and activities for the kids to participate in. Kids Night In is a part of Date Night In – yes, they have subscription boxes for adults too! Each month, I craft menus for both their Kids Night In and Date Night In boxes and it’s been so incredible working with the women and moms behind this cool concept. They are awesome!

April’s Kids Night In box was barnyard themed, so I decided to come up with barnyard bagels based on the characters in the book. I figured it would be a fun way to get the kids even more engaged and excited about eating for the day! I love to make Peyton fun food with faces and I had a blast putting this together. The thing I love most about these barnyard bagels is that most of the ingredients I used were things I already had in my fridge or pantry. They are perfect for a barnyard-themed party or just a normal weekday lunch.

  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Slice of cheddar or American cheese
  • 2 sliced black olives

Cow Bagel

  • Half of a bagel
  • 2-3 tablespoons of white bean or regular hummus
  • 1 snap pea
  • 2 carrot slices

Sheep Bagel

  • Half of a bagel

Pig Bagel

  • Half of a bagel
  • 3 slices of thinly sliced ham
  • Slice of cheddar or American cheese

  • Yellow mustard

Directions

Duck Bagel

Heat a small frying pan over medium-low heat. Coat it with cooking spray. While the pan is heating up, whisk one egg, one tablespoon of water and a pinch or two of salt and pepper in a small bowl. When ready, add the egg to the frying pan, swirling it around the coat the whole bottom of the pan. Let it cook for 2-3 minutes, until the egg is mostly set. Using a spatula flip the egg to cook through.

To create the duck’s beak, using a knife or kitchen scissors, cut two oval shapes out of the cheese.

To assemble the bagel, top with the egg crepe, add sliced olives (eyes) and oval pieces of cheese (beak).

Cow Bagel

To create the cow’s snout, using a knife or kitchen scissors, cut a big oval shape out of one of the small peppers. To create the eyes, cut the ends of both of the peppers. To create the horns, cut a snap pea in half.

To assemble the bagel, top with 2-3 tablespoons of hummus, and add snap peas as horns at the top, carrots as ears on each side, ends of the peppers as eyes and the oval pepper as a snout. Top the snout with two dices of pepper.

Sheep bagel

To assemble the bagel, top with 2-3 tablespoons of cream cheese. Using a toothpick or small knife, shape the ears and mouth of the sheep with jam. Add blueberries for the eyes, nose and ears.

Pig Bagel

To make the pig’s ears, cut a slice of ham in half and fold each piece over. To make the snout, using a knife or kitchen scissors, cut a large oval shape out of the cheese.

To assemble the bagel, add ears at the top and then add two additional slices of ham to the bagel. Add olives as eyes and the cheese as the snout. Top the snout with two dots of mustard and add a smiley face underneath.
