St. Patrick's Day Ideas: Green Breakfast Recipe
Break your boring breakfast rut with a dose of creativity! Colorful eggs and painted toast are guaranteed to stave off the crankies ... until at least 9am. Plus, they're a great idea for St. Patrick's Day!
- Sliced bread
- Small bowl
- Clean paintbrush
- Food coloring
- 3 oz milk for painting the toast, plus extra for drinking
- 4 eggs
- To make the toast, fill a small bowl with 3 ounces of milk and add 2 to 3 drops of food coloring. Then let your child paint the toast. (Note: For young kids, you may want to explain that since this is milk, it's safe to eat, while real paint is not.) To keep the bread from getting soggy, avoid letting your child paint too much in one spot.
- When painting is finished, stick the bread in the toaster.
- While the bread is toasting, whisk three eggs together with 2 to 3 drops of food coloring. Then fry 'em up.
- Serve with colored milk by adding 2 to 3 drops of food coloring to white milk, and voilà!
- Green eggs are a great idea for St. Patrick's Day (or if your kid is going through a Dr. Seuss obsession), but try red for Valentine's Day, orange for Halloween, blue for Blue Day ... you get the idea.
