Shamrock Eggs


Here's a healthy St. Patrick’s Day surprise for the kids. These eggs are the perfect quick way to get both veggies and protein at the beginning of the day.


1 green bell pepper
4 eggs 
2-3 tablespoons oil
cheese slices, optional


1.  Slice bell pepper into 1/4-inch thick circles.  Heat cooking oil over medium-low heat in a skillet.  Place 2-3 slices in the skillet and cook about 30 seconds per side.  

2.  Crack an egg into each bell pepper in the skillet. Allow eggs to cook inside pepper rings.  Add 2-3 tablespoons of water to skillet and cover to steam the eggs - no need to flip them. Once eggs are cooked through, you can cover with a slice of cheese, if preferred. To melt the cheese, turn off heat and let eggs sit in pan with lid on. 

Serves 2-3.
