Fruit Gobbler

OH MY! I couldn't resist this ADORABLE display of fruit and veggies! What a great idea for an appetizer! Brody can't have cheese, so I would omit and add more fruit...I just love this! Another project for the kids to help with!

This recipe is free of milk, eggs, wheat, soy, peanuts, tree nuts, fish and shellfish

Bosc pear (head)
Melon (body)
Cheese (beak and tail feathers) *Brody can't have cheese, so I would sub some more fruit
Red pepper (snood, feet and side feathers)
Raisins (eyes)
Grapes (tail feathers)
Bamboo skewers

1. Stabilize the melon body by cutting a shallow slice off the rind to form a flat base. Using a section of bamboo skewer, attach a Bosc pear head to the melon, as shown.
2. Cut a cheese triangle beak (Maybe a cut cantelope would work? and red pepper snood). Attach both, along with raisin eyes, to the head with sections of toothpick.
3. Cut red pepper feet and set them in place. For tail feathers, skewer cheese cubes (or other fruit) and red grapes, then insert the skewers as shown. Pin pepper side feathers in place with toothpicks.
