Shamrock Toasties (Kids St. Patrick's Day)

Total Time
Prep 5 mins

This recipe is for a treat to make for your kids or with your kids. It is super simple and a great way to celebrate St. Patrick's Day together. Have it ready for them while you make dinner or make it as lunch or a snack on the green day. Sure to please and maybe get them to eat the pepper. This recipe came from Family Fun. Enjoy. ChefDLH.


  1. 1. To make one, slice a green pepper crosswise near the pointed end to get a small, three-lobed shamrock shape. (If your pepper has four lobes, you've got a lucky clover instead.) Cut a small slice for a stem.
  2. 2. Toast half an English muffin, then top it with a slice of Cheddar and the pepper shamrock.
  3. 3. repeat as many times as you want (for four do it 3x more).
  4. 4.Place the muffins on a tray, then broil it in a toaster oven until the cheese is melted (this time will vary by toaster oven so keep an eye on it).

Clever presentation that would tickle kiddos into eating their veggies. Who doesn't like cheese? Made for the Irish leg of GB Forum's Tour of the British Isles.

~Tasty Dish~ and I love Family Fun's recipes! Another creative recipe from them! We also tried this with bagels and freshly grated Parmesan cheese. PS we used Tillamook cheese slices. This was also good with Tillamook Swiss cheese slices, too. I will try to remind myself next time I prepare this to take a picture of the toastie and post it. Thanks!
