I am a firm believer that we should celebrate every single holiday – no matter what. We never know how many of them we are going to get, so celebrating incessantly can never be a bad thing. After all, you can never have too much happiness, right? My family has come to know this about me, so no one will be surprised when St Patrick’s Day Breakfast is over the top. These adorable and delicious Shamrock Fried Eggs are sure to be a hit for even the pickiest of eaters.
I have to admit – I used to not like bell peppers at all. To be fair, I never really gave them a chance. My children, on the other hand, would eat them like an apple if I allowed it. This breakfast is super easy and only a few ingredients – which I always have on hand anyway – makes it perfect for even fast-paced school mornings!
This is also a keto-friendly recipe, but you can make it a Whole30 Compliant Breakfast by using ghee or olive oil in place of the butter! How cool is that?! You can also experiment with other seasonings and ingredients to added to change up the flavor.
Putting together these Shamrock Fried Eggs is super easy – simply slice your bell pepper horizontally and place in a hot frying pan. Flip once, then gently crack your egg in the center, add seasonings, cover, and let cook until the egg is cooked to your desired doneness. Voila!
You can then top your little “shamrock” with things like salsa, green onion, and/or cheese! So simple and delicious – the sky is the limit on what you can do!
- 1 large Green Bell Pepper
- 4 Eggs
- 1 tablespoon of grass fed Butter like Kerrygold
- Salt and Pepper to taste
Slice the bell peppers into rings, about 2 cm thick. I got 4 rings.
Melt butter in a frying pan, preferably cast iron, over medium-high heat.
Place the bell pepper rings in the pan and turn once, after a minute.
Crack an egg inside each pepper ring.
Season with salt and pepper.
Cover with a lid and cook until the white is set and the yolk reaches your desired doneness. About 3 to 5 minutes, depending.
Remove from the pan and serve hot.
Instead of green bell pepper use colorful bell peppers for a spring/Easter themed breakfast.
