September 29th was my dog’s birthday. Snoopy, our beloved Beagle/Border Collie/Something Else rescue dog, turned two! So of course I wanted to throw him a party, but…that seemed like a lot of work. So instead, I came up with some healthy party snacks for kids – and we ate them in Snoopy’s honor (and he *may* have partaken in some snacking, too).
We adopted Snoopy nearly two years ago from a local Dallas rescue group. He was found with his mother and eight siblings under a restaurant in Fort Worth. He’s been a source of entertainment, love, trouble, and everything else that comes with dog ownership. And this week, he was even a source of inspiration.
Because Snoopy hard boiled eggs.
I wanted to share a favorite Texas casserole with you guys this week. Every time I see my Lonestar Eggs in the fridge, I feel like we need to make something authentically Texan with them. And casseroles, in my experience, are pretty authentic Texan fare.
But I just couldn’t. I had the idea to make Snoopy eggs, and, well…sometimes you just have turn your hard-boiled eggs into art. (I say that very loosely).
- Lonestar Eggs, hard boiled (you definitely need white eggs for Snoopy!)
- Food-safe black marker
- Red muffin cups (I used red because Snoopy’s doghouse, collar and bowl are red)
- Pretzel sticks to create Woodstock’s “nest”
Here’s a short video showing how simple they are to make (you don’t need to be an artist…you just need to be able to draw a few lines!).
Break up the pretzel sticks and place them in the muffin cups, resting the egg on top (this was totally inspired by Woodstock’s nest!).
These are perfect as healthy party snacks, for afternoon snacking, and school lunches.
Lonestar Eggs, available exclusively at Walmart, are gathered in Texas, by Texans, and laid by Texas hens. We love buying fresh, Texas eggs (we eat a lot of eggs each week, especially since Jack recently decided he likes hard-boiled eggs after all!).
