Eggs are a high cholesterol food for Parrots. They should only eat eggs once every 21 days. African Grey parrots should never eat eggs. Dairy is not digestible by Parrots. We occasionally sprinkle a little cheese on top and feed to our new rescues that are not used to eating cooked food. You can leave the cheese out on all these recipes. 1 serving = 1 Parrot
Apple (Organic if possible)
Any recent leftovers – cooked pasta or any other leftovers.
In a large stainless steel frying pan (non-Teflon), on medium heat, heat one tablespoon of peanut oil, or olive oil per serving, (per egg). Add 1 Tbsp. of cooked strained corn to the pan per serving
Then add 1/8th cup of water, per 1 Tbsp. of frozen corn. Put corn into the frying pan, and heat it up on medium heat.
In a second stainless steel pot, heat up the lima beans (about 4 beans per serving) and 3 to 4 dried crushed peppers per serving. Lightly sprinkle cayenne peppers on top of the lima beans and turn heat off
In a second pot of boiling water, and add 2 Tbsp. of frozen mixed veggies to the boiling water, and turn off heat.
In the frying pan, when the corn starts to simmer, add leftover pasta (cooked and re-strained). Then stir on medium-high heat
Add strained mixed veggies and stir
Slowly pour in your lightly scrambled eggs into the frying pan. (Don’t over scramble the eggs) Cover with a glass lid if possible, and/or wait 1 minute while cooking
Turn the heat down to medium-low. Stir up the eggs, and cover again on medium heat for 1 minute.
Lift the lid and add water. Stir, and turn the heat off. Cover for one more minute, or until it finishes cooking.
Make sure the eggs are cooked thoroughly before serving. If you have female parrots, add a couple of sprinkles of sharp or cheddar cheese to melt.
Female parrots need the extra calcium.
Serve the omelet on one side of the serving dish, and on the other side add a generous Tbsp. and a half of your mixed veggies. Finally, add diced apples for a garnish and serve.
