Gertie's Great Griddle Cakes
Posted by: Stephanie Williamson - email@example.com - September 5, 1999
1 pkg Jiffy Corn Muffin Mix
1 egg, including shell (wash egg and grind shell thoroughly)
leftover seeds (if you own a bird, you know what I mean)*
1 Tbs hummus (this was roasted garlic hummus)
1 Tbs peanut butter (this was smooth, but chunky would have been nummier)
1 Tbs honey (actually just dumped it in and didn't measure it
1/3 Cip milk or so
I dumped it all in except for the milk. Mixed it up and then started to add milk. I got it to muffin consistency, but then I remembered reading about someone making a cookie on cast iron, so I decided to make griddlecakes. Gertie(my U2) is still trying to decide if they are edible, but Cassanova (my rotten Standard Poodle puppy) has already stolen at least one and pronounced it delicious. He stands with his nose pressed to the bars when Gertie is eating out of her treat bowl. He thinks he is abused!
Dumped it by 1/8 cup amounts onto a very hot cast iron pan. Let it get dry on the edges and bubbles on top and then flipped. They were a bit hard to flip and the first ones weren't pretty, but who cares! Will let you know if miss picky Gertie decides they are edible.

Lynns Pancake Breakfast
Posted by: Lynn Coppess - Luckyelsie@aol.com - July 22, 1998
1 box of just add water pancake mix
Prepare as directed only using orange juice or apple juice instead of water. You can also add bird vitamins to mixture if necessary. Any left over pancakes can be frozen or refrigerated and reheated in microwave for later use.
Recipe is versatile, so you can add any combination of fruits or nuts if you want to, like mashed bananas, or blueberries etc. My African Grey is very finicky and hard to please, but he loves those pancakes and gets his vitamins as well. Try it and see.

3 Tbs finely chopped carrot (I have to cut it small to hide it from her)
1 Tbs riccotta or cottage cheese
1/4 cup beans any kind ( not refried ) black are her favorite
1 splash of milk to mix it
3 Tbs chopped each ( green pepper, broccoli, sweet corn)
Use any vegetables you have at the time, to add a few new ones besides corn. My amazon loves yams, most finicky birds will eat a sweet yam. Mix all the above ingredients together and microwave in a bowl for a couple minutes. Don't use the stove. If you keep fresh veggies around its really fast to make. Hope your baby enjoys it. If he doesn't you might try mashed potatoes. My goffins love them.
Quick Beakfast (breakfast)
Posted by: Jamie Hullenbaugh - firstname.lastname@example.org - September 16, 1999
Quick easy breakfast for stubborn babies while weaning.
One packet instant grits OR oatmeal. SUBSTITUTE apple juice for the 3/4 cup boiling water. Add 1/4 cup raisons or dried fruit. Let sit to cool... also has the purpose of letting the dried fruit absorb some juice. This also applies to the standard grits and oatmeal. It makes more batches that are easy to freeze in ice cube trays.
I have 6 kids and a bunch of feather babies. On cold mornings this is great for all of them.
Sarah's Aussie Egg and biscuit
Posted by: Sarah from Australia - email@example.com - May 21, 2004
An effective home made variation to buying egg and biscuit from stores is below.
1. Beat 1 egg in a bowl with a fork
2. Cook beaten egg in microwave until egg hard (1min approx or until liquid gone)
3. Break up egg with fork into small pieces (fine mixing done with hands in step 5.)
4. Put egg and rice crumbs* (1/2 cup approx) in a deep bowl (as mixing is a little messy)
5. Rub cooked egg into rice crumbs with two clean hands (similar to rubbing butter into flour - rub mix between your thumb and fingers)
6. When a fine crumb mixture is formed, this should be enough for 2 small budgie bowls
They love to eat it warm. Remember not to keep the mixture in the cage for more than 1 day as moist food breeds bacteria. Tip - Buy small plastic containers and store excess in freezer for up to 2wks. Reheat in microwave for 1min, wait 5-10 for it to cool (check!) and give to birdies!
*Rice crumbs are an alternative to bread crumbs. They make a better quality egg + biscuit, as they are finer and also do not create yeast/crop infections, as there is no yeast. Available in health food stores or the health food section of many supermarkets. Cheap too!
