How We Made It Bird-Friendly
This recipe is a healthy version you can share with your bird. We made our own breadcrumbs from toasted whole-wheat bread that was cut into bite-sized cubes. We removed the salt from the recipe and added cranberries and sunflower seeds to add flavor. If you prefer a stronger flavor, add in other spices or herbs to your portion.
