Irish Bell Pepper Eggs

If you slice a bell pepper across the width into 1/2 inch slices, they form a shamrock! I heated eggs in the center of each bell pepper slice and it made a surprising morning breakfast. What a wonderful way to make eggs and vegetables a star for a St. Patrick’s Day breakfast!

    What an awesome idea. Talk about thinking outside the box…. I tried it and is really great. I’ve used three different types of Bell Peppers now and I love them all. I may never eat eggs plain again… thanks for the great idea and recipe..
