Even though my boys are older now, there are certain things they still expect me to do for holidays. They want the leprechaun to visit and mess up the living room, and also leave them a box of Lucky Charms hidden in the mess. They also expect me to make them special St. Paddy’s meals! We always enjoy a traditional Irish dinner, but I have changed up their breakfast throughout the years. This year, I am using this Easy Rainbow Waffles Recipe for St. Patrick’s Day Breakfast.
If you decide to make a purchase through my links, I will be paid a small commission for it. This doesn’t cost you anything additional.
Green Food for St. Patrick’s Day
When the boys were younger, we would make all of their food green for St. Paddy’s Day. As they have gotten older, we have stopped doing that as much. But they do still enjoy St. Patrick’s Day themed food!
We all really love this St. Patrick’s Day Milkshake Recipe I shared a few years ago. It’s so much better than a restaurant bought green shake! And, these Simple St. Patrick’s Day Snacks never last long in our house!
Recipe for St. Patrick’s Day
I am all about easy recipes. And, these waffles are about as easy as it can get! You only need a few ingredients, and you’ll have rainbow waffles in no time. To make it even easier for you, I made an Amazon (affiliate) shopping list, so you won’t even have to leave your house to get most of the supplies and ingredients.
St. Patrick’s Day Themed Food
This recipe is truly easier than making a boxed cake! Mix the cake mix according to the box directions. Then, pour some into smaller cups and add a few drops of food coloring to each one. I made red, orange, green, and blue. After I mixed each color, I poured the mix into a sandwich bag, and cut off a corner to make a piping bag.
I piped each color into the waffle iron; red around the outside, then orange, then green, and finally blue in the middle. Close the waffle iron and allow it to fully cook.
Finally, remove the waffle, and cut in half. Place on a plate with some whipped cream, sprinkles, and fresh berries for a delicious and fun St. Paddy’s Day breakfast recipe even the leprechauns would approve of!
