Shamrock Pancakes for St. Patrick’s Day

You won’t believe how easy it is to make fun and festive Shamrock Pancakes for St. Patrick’s Day breakfast! These are a HUGE hit in our house!

Call me corny, but I love the green-colored food and shamrock-shaped everything! And of course we wear green all day too!


– pancake batter prepared – bright green gel food coloring

To save time, we used boxed pancake mix. Using a box mix also makes it pretty much foolproof to cook perfect fluffy pancakes!


Once your batter is mixed, stir in 2-3 drops of bright green gel food coloring — a little bit goes a long way! Pour batter into a plastic squeeze bottle.


Warm up a flat griddle over medium heat. The temperature should be just right when a drop of water sizzles on the griddle.


When griddle is ready, coat generously with butter or cooking spray so pancakes won't stick. Use the squeeze bottle to draw the outline of a shamrock with batter, connecting the ends completely.


After you've drawn the entire outline, fill in the middle with batter. Your pancake is ready to flip with the top surface is covered with tiny bubbles.
