Wouldn’t it be fun to wake up on the 4th to a delicious and healthy 4th of July Breakfast like this? I saw this idea last year on Back to Her Roots and knew my family would just love this fun breakfast toast.
And talk about easy! All you need to make this patriotic toast are blueberries, jam, bananas and your favorite toast. PS… this would also be PERFECT for Memorial Day or Labor Day.
4TH OF JULY BREAKFAST
- 2 sliceds of toast
- 2 TB strawberry or raspberry jam
- 1 large banana
- 1/3 cup fresh blueberries
- 1. Spread 1 TB of jam on each piece of toast. Arrange blueberries and banana slices on toast to from a flag. Enjoy!
To get the most flavor out of this open-faced breakfast sandwich, look for spring onions with round bulbs and very tender dark green stalks. If you can find only thicker-stalked spring onions, cut the stalks in half lengthwise, then into 3″ pieces. Cook the stalks along with the bulbs; they’ll benefit from the extra time.
- 8 spring onions
- 3 Tbsp. unsalted butter, divided
- Kosher salt, freshly ground pepper
- ¼ cup white wine vinegar
- 1 cup fresh ricotta
- 1 oz. finely grated Parmesan (about ¼ cup)
- ½ lemon
- 1 small garlic clove
- 2 5×5″ pieces focaccia
- 4 large eggs, beaten to blend
Place a rack in center of oven; preheat to 350°. Trim woody ends of spring onions. Separate white bulbs from green parts with a knife. Cut bulbs in half through the root end; if size varies wildly, cut larger bulbs into quarters. Cut tender green parts of stalks into 3″ pieces; set aside separately from bulbs.
Heat 2 Tbsp. butter in a 10″ nonstick skillet over medium until foaming. Add onion bulbs and toss to coat in butter; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring often, until deeply golden brown and starting to soften, 4–5 minutes. Add vinegar, onion stalks, and ½ cup water and continue to cook, stirring occasionally, until almost all liquid is cooked off and bulbs are very soft and jammy, 6–8 minutes longer. Transfer to a plate. Wipe out skillet.
While onions cook, mix ricotta and Parmesan in a small bowl; season with salt and pepper. Finely grate lemon zest and garlic into ricotta mixture and stir to combine.
Warm focaccia in oven (place directly on rack) until soft and warmed through but not browned, 2–3 minutes. Divide between plates. Spread ricotta mixture in swooshing dollops on top of focaccia.
Melt remaining 1 Tbsp. butter in skillet over medium-low heat. Add eggs; season with salt. Cook, stirring frequently in large sweeping figure-eight motions with a spatula, until eggs have set into creamy folds, 1–2 minutes.
Divide scrambled eggs between focaccia. Top with onion mixture.

Make-Ahead Breakfast Hack: How to Make Sheet Pan Eggs
We’re all for a delicious food hybrid, and tater tot waffles are no exception. This version is made with prosciutto, mixed greens, and mustard, but the topping options are endless—from to .
Jen Pelka of The Riddler in San Francisco makes supercrunchy and delicious waffles using Tater Tots. One of her more hearty ways of serving the waffles is topped with prosciutto and mixed greens, along with a quick mix of créme fraîche and mustard.
Total: 40 mins Yield: Four 8-inch waffles
Nonstick cooking spray
8 cups frozen Tater Tots (32 ounces thawed)
Flaky sea salt
¼ cup crème fraîche
2 tablespoons whole-grain mustard
2 cups baby arugula
1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil
12 slices prosciutto
Thinly sliced cornichons (for serving)
Heat an 8-inch waffle iron; preheat the oven to 200°. Grease the waffle iron with nonstick spray. Spread 2 cups of the tots on it; sprinkle with salt. Close and cook on medium high until nearly crisp, about 5 minutes. Open the waffle iron and fill in any holes in the waffle with more tots, then close and cook until golden and crispy, 2 to 3 minutes. Transfer to a baking sheet; keep warm in the oven. Repeat with the remaining tots.
Meanwhile, in a bowl, mix the crème fraîche and mustard. In another bowl, toss the arugula with the lemon juice and olive oil. Top each warm waffle with 1 1/2 tablespoons of the mustard crème fraîche, 3 slices of prosciutto and 1/2 cup of the dressed arugula. Garnish with cornichons and serve.
