Memorial Day Breakfast

filed under: Pancakes + Waffles on May 31, 2010

As I was making our Memorial Day Cookies to bring to a friends, I realized they were a bit more campout cookies and a bit less Memorial Day like.

I decided to make a very special breakfast for the family, because we have a couple very special Veterans in our families and we want the kids to understand that this weekend is more about celebrating sacrifice then celebrating s’mores.

(and I think they would be great for July 4th celebrations too!)

Patriotic Pancakes

These fun pancakes are a regular pancake and a red velvet pancakes stacked to resemble the stripes in a flag. With a little syrup and blueberries on top, you have the perfect way to honor Memorial Day or July 4th!

This breakfast is as easy as it is delicious.

Thank you so much to all the Veterans and those currently serving…
and the amazing families supporting them.  You are appreciated!

The Red Velvet pancakes are a true red velvet recipe, but you could also add a little red food coloring to your regular pancake recipe to get the same effect.
