St. Patrick's Day Breakfast Ideas with Green Breakfast Burritos

St. Patrick's Day is coming up and we want to help you celebrate!
  
Young children love to look forward to each holiday big or small. Here's an easy breakfast idea you can do to put the green into this Irish day.

Green Breakfast Burritos

Crack 4 eggs into a bowl (or more depending on your crowd). Add 3 drops of green food coloring and beat eggs lightly, until blended.
Cook scrambled eggs as usual over medium heat in your saute pan.
Warm up flour tortillas, sprinkle a little cheese, then add green eggs.  My kids like a dab of mayonnaise in their burritos.

You can wrap up the egg burrito before the kids see and let them take a surprising bite or show them the green beforehand.
Serve with kiwis, green grapes, green apples, or your choice of green appetizer.
I purchased some Green Machine Naked Juice on the fly for this celebration, but I'm pretty adept at making my own green smoothies so don't be afraid to add a little spinach to your smoothie and make it your own personal shade of green.

Serve and enjoy! Looks like some of these kids might get a pinch if they don't put on some green!
