For our Frugal Family Fun project today we made Red, White, & Blue Waffles. It was so simple to do — and a fun way to be a little patriotic.
If you need an easy and festive breakfast for the Fourth of July, you could adapt this idea for tomorrow morning — or any morning of the year. It’s especially nice to make in summer, because the waffle iron doesn’t heat up the kitchen like the stove and oven do.
Red, White, & Blue Waffles
Makes 4-6 Belgian waffles
- 1 3/4 cups flour (whole-wheat, white, or a mixture of both)
- 2 Tablespoons sugar (or raw sugar)
- 1 Tablespoon baking powder
- 2 eggs
- 1 3/4 cup milk (You can use half milk/half water, if you prefer.)
- 1/2 cup oil or melted butter
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- Yogurt Sauce (6-ounces of yogurt or Greek yogurt mixed with 1-2 Tablespoons maple syrup) or whipped cream
Mix together dry waffle batter ingredients in one bowl. Lightly beat together wet waffle batter ingredients in another. Add egg mixture to dry ingredients and stir just until moistened. Pour batter onto lightly-oiled or buttered waffle iron and bake until done.
Top with chopped strawberries, blueberries, and yogurt sauce or whipped cream and serve.
