Whether it’s Memorial Day, 4th of July, or Veterans Day, it’s important to us that our kids honor those who have fought for our freedom. We love sharing stories of our how our country was born, with all the good, bad, and ugly that goes along with it.

One of the ways we talk about different holidays is through food. It’s a great way to connect, as the entire family is sitting down and enjoying the meal. This festive waffle recipe of red, white, blue waffles is one of our favorite breakfasts during that time. These homemade waffles are so easy to make, too!

Some tips for making these festive waffles:

  • Make sure your waffle iron is nice and hot. Many will have a green light indicating readiness. A hot waffle iron is less likely to stick.
  • For meal prep, combine the dry ingredients in a ziplock bag, and the wet ingredients in another bag. Store in the fridge for up to 3 days. When you are ready to make your festive waffles, simply follow the directions to combine them and proceed.
  • Make a couple extra waffles, and roll with a rolling pin to make waffle ice cream cones for a tasty treat, too!
