Every Independence Day, I like to give my breakfast the red white and blue treatment. It’s easy, fun and always beautiful. All you need are some berries and yogurt or whipped cream. For the red berries, I usually go for a combination of raspberries and strawberries. For the blue berries, I use rare Japanese Sakuranbo berries. Just kidding. I use blueberries.
The great thing about these ingredients is that you can use them to turn many breakfast staples into patriotic masterpieces. Use them in layers to make yogurt breakfast parfaits. Use oatmeal for your white ingredient (although it’s more tan) to make oatmeal parfaits. Pancakes and waffles are like a painter’s canvas just waiting to became red white and blue works of art.
For toast, spreads of blueberry jam, strawberry jam and cream cheese will have everybody in your family whistling “Yankee Doodle.”
Have a fantastic 4th!
