American Flag Toast

American Flag Toast is incredibly easy and fun to make! It’s the perfect last-minute Fourth of July recipe since you probably have most of the ingredients on hand already. 

The 4th of July is all about red, white, blue and the stars and stripes. This American flag toast for the 4th of July is super festive and will be perfect for your Independence Day celebration whether you’re having a big get-together or just hanging out with family at home. You could easily whip these up for lunch or a snack using ingredients you probably already have stocked! 

Now the big question is to toast or not to toast the bread. And what about the crusts? We’ll leave it up to you to decide. 

Can’t decide how to cut your bananas? Get creative and make a few in different ways. If you end up with a few extra pieces, you can always freeze bananas for smoothies.

The Fourth of July is one of our favorite holidays. We make so many fun treats like Fourth of July ParfaitsRed, White & Blue Pops, and 4th of July Fruit Wands! We try to keep the recipes really simple so little ones can help out.
