Save your St. Patty’s Day calories for green beer. Start off with 2 Shamrock Fried Eggs ~ less than 200 calories.

Here’s a fun breakfast for St. Patrick’s Day.

A few days ago, I saw a photo posted on Facebook where someone fried eggs inside of some beautiful, colorful red and yellow peppers. That gave me the idea to fry up eggs in green peppers shaped like clovers.

Shamrock Fried Eggs from ZestuousWhen you go to the market, look at the base of the peppers and pick out the ones with four humps to resemble a lucky four-leaf clover.

Depending on the size of the peppers and the eggs, the egg white might ooze over or under the edges while frying, but you can clean up the final presentation before serving.

  1. Maybe you have ever thought about who publishes a multitude of this stuff that you and me hit upon? The world wide web never was in the past like that, a short time ago though it has changed. What is your opinion?
