Despicable Me Breakfast

My 2 year old is really into Despicable Me big time and we thought it would be fun to make him a Despicable Breakfast making Gru Pancakes and Minion Eggs! He was so happy and excited!

A Despicable Breakfast

Pancake Mix
1 Marshmallow
2 Mini Marshmallows
Eggs (scrambled)
1 Blue Fruit Roll Up

Mix up your pancake mix and make a large circle in a pan on low heat. Make another pancake to cut out details. Cut the ends off of a marshmallow and place them on the pancake for eyes. Cut out pieces of the other pancake using kitchen scissors to make the eye lids, nose, mouth, & ears. Scramble up 2 eggs and place them on the plate to make Minions. We cut out small circles from pancake to make the goggles. We cut a mini marshmallow in half for the eyes and used raisins for the pupils, google straps, and feet. We also used raisins for Gru’s eye brows and pupils. We cut a blue fruit roll up for the Minions overalls.

Is this really for me???

We LOVE Despicable Me at our house; my girls would die over having this for breakfast! I'll be featuring this on my blog on Saturday.

Such a fun idea. My mom use to make us pancakes shaped like our initials.
I just started a new Finding the Pretty & Delicious Linky Party on my blog this week – would love to have you stop by and share!

Pinned and sharing on Facebook today Jill!

Happy New year. I created my version of minions too by inspiring from your post. I did not get my GRU as good as yours but the minions were a hit. I used mashed bananas for the body(we don't eat Egg), fruit roll for overalls, raisins and olives (had to cut into small curves and pieces.) for eyes and shoes, gloves. It was fun and my kids enjoyed it. I am very impressed how you create all these characters. Keep up the good work.


This is fab, the Gru is just brilliant. Will definitely be surprising my little boy with this for breakfast one morning!
