With the 4th of July just around the corner, we see American flags and the red-white-and-blue just about everywhere we go!  For breakfast in Denver this 4th of July, try your hand at a patriotic start to the day.  Here are a few ideas to make your breakfast festive!


Patriotic Toast

This is a simple one to whip up and we guarantee the kids will love it!  Simply toast your favorite bread and spread with a layer of cream cheese.  Then, use strawberries or raspberries and arrange in straight lines across the toast.  Alternate the “red” lines with banana slices for the “white” lines.  Finally, add blueberries to the upper left corner to complete your “flag” toast!


Stars and Stripes Berry Trifle

Another quick and easy patriotic breakfast, this recipe uses yogurt, angel food cake, and fresh berries.  To assemble, alternate layers of yogurt, red berries and blueberries, and angel food cake in a clear glass trifle jar, individual clear cups, or clear mason jars. Top with a bit of whipped cream to make this an extra special treat!


Red, White and Blueberry French Toast

Prepare your favorite French Toast recipe and top with a patriotic medley of fresh berries.  We like to use fresh raspberries, strawberries, and blueberries and top it all off with a dollop of fresh whipped cream.  Yum!


Of course if you are in patriotic mood and don’t have time to cook, come visit us at The Original Pancake House in Denver and we’ll make you one of our famous breakfasts topped with fresh berries!  We have fresh berry crepes, pancakes, and waffles!  They are all berry patriotic!


Have a safe and happy 4th of July Denver!
