So red, white, and blue make an appearance day in a breakfast recipe. This All-American classic waffles are tasty topped with nutella followed by fruit to create a replica of the American flag.
Now this waffle recipe is great on it’s own, so feel free to use it as just a regular old waffle too. However, for the 4th of July, I thought it would be fun to top them and make them look more patriotic.
I cooked the waffles in my rectangular shaped waffle maker and spread some nutella over the waffle. Then I topped them with blueberries, raspberries, and bananas to make it look like a flag.
You could always pipe on some whipped cream to make the white stripes instead of using a banana if you’d prefer. Also, you can make the waffle what ever shape you want and still decorate it with the berries to look like a flag, but obviously the rectangular shape is the most flag like. 🙂 So start the 4th of July off right with these patriotic waffles!
