Super Festive Fourth of July Breakfast!
The Fourth of July is coming and that means red, white, and blue everything, right? It’s no secret that this holiday is my very favorite. I tend to go overboard when it comes to all the festive food we eat. (Have you seen my free Fourth of July Favorite Foods menu? You can grab it here. )
Anyways, flag waffles are a family favorite. When we aren’t rushing off to a parade and have time for a longer breakfast, we love decorating flag waffles! Quite honestly, I’m not sure if you can get more patriotic than eating a flag for breakfast, now can you? 😉
If you don’t have time for waffles, check out these patriotic parfaits.

How to Make Your Flag Waffles
- Make your favorite waffles. If you want to really simplify, buy some pre-made, frozen waffles.
- Set out all of your flag waffles toppings. This can be done the night before to simplify.
- Add blueberries in the upper left corner.
- Alternate red raspberries and whipped cream on each of the remaining stripes.
Tip: Let kids get involved in decorating their flag waffles. No one says the flags have to be perfect, but there isn’t anything wrong if they are. 🙂
Fresh blueberries and raspberries are just the right size to decorate with.
