Cinnamon Roll Turkeys are the Most Adorable Thanksgiving Breakfast

Between all of the casseroles, pies, and turkey, it’s hard to imagine how one could eat even more on Thanksgiving day, but this is one tasty treat that you’ll definitely want to make room for.

These festive “turkeys” made from cinnamon rolls, a few slices of bacon, and candy corn are an adorable option for Thanksgiving breakfast. Perhaps best of all: They can be made and served in less than 30 minutes thanks to this clever hack from Pillsbury. Once the turkeys are assembled, you can finish them off with candy eyes and pretzels sticks for feet.

If you find yourself too busy to make breakfast that morning, you can get the kids involved with this clever recipe. The only thing they’ll love more than assembling these cute birds is eating them!

Servings 5 Servings


  • 1 Can Pillsbury™ Grands!™ refrigerated cinnamon rolls with icing 17.5 oz can
  • 10 Slices Bacon
  • 5 Candy corns
  • 5 Red mini candy-coated chocolate candies
  • 10 Candy eyeballs
  • 15 Mini pretzel sticks, cut in half


  1. Heat oven to 350°F. Line cookie sheet with cooking parchment paper.

  2. Set icing aside. Separate dough into 5 rolls; place about 3 inches apart on cookie sheet. Unroll each roll about 1 inch; tuck dough into roll to create neck of turkey.
  3. Bake 20 minutes or until light golden brown. Remove from cookie sheet to cooling rack; cool 5 minutes.

  4. Meanwhile, cook bacon until crisp; drain on paper towel-lined plate. Cut bacon slices in half. Tuck 4 halves of bacon into back of each cinnamon roll so they stick up and look like tail feathers.
  5. Drizzle tops of rolls with icing. Decorate turkeys with candy eyeballs, candy corn and candy-coated chocolate candies. Before serving, place halved pretzel sticks underneath each turkey to resemble turkey’s feet.
