St. Patrick's Day Breakfast - Rainbow Toast

The calendar says March, but northern Arkansas has seen quite an unseasonable ice and snow storm for this time of year. Schools have been closed for the week, and my grandson Landon has been visiting at my house during some of his time off. While sledding has been a favorite activity of his, we have found some other fun pastimes as well. One interesting thing Landon thought of doing this week was to make a rainbow colored breakfast for us in honor of St. Patrick's Day.

To make Landon's special breakfast we used:
Whole grain cocktail-sized bread
Soft spreadable butter
Colored sugar sprinkles in rainbow colors (Red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, violet)
Scrambled eggs

Each little slice of bread was spread lightly with butter, then sprinkled with a color of sugar to represent a color of the rainbow. We toasted our bread on a foil covered baking sheet for a few minutes in the oven under the broiler, then served the rainbow of toast up with a pot of gold-colored scrambled eggs. 

This St. Patrick's Day breakfast was one of Landon's great ideas to keep his Grammy entertained while we wait for the ice to melt.

    1. Thanks, Kitty! I have enjoyed having him here while school has been closed. All the area schools have missed an unbelievable number of school days due to bad weather this year. He always has fun ideas for us to try!
