SHAMROCK EGGS

Ingredients
  • 1 green bell pepper
  • 1 egg
  • shredded cheese (I use a Mexican blend)
Directions
  1. Slice bell pepper about 1/2 inch thick to form a ring. Scoop out any seeds but try to let the shape remain intact to that it looks like a 4 leaf clover.
  2. In a pan (we use a cast iron skillet), melt some butter. Saute pepper ring on each side until soft (2-3 minutes per side).
  3. Add the egg to the center of the pepper. Sprinkle with cheese. Cover pan and cook for 3-5 minutes.
