It’s Tuesday again and here comes another round of taste testing! (Sorry to post so late, but it’s been one of those days!) Today’s taste test is a bit different. In honor of St. Patrick’s Day tomorrow, the test today is to see if you like shamrocks for breakfast or not! 😉 You’ll need a slice of bread, an egg, some green food coloring, butter, some green sugar, cinnamon and a skillet and spatula for cooking.
First, cut the center out of the slice of bread in the shape of a shamrock. If you have a shamrock shaped cookie cutter, that’s a great help.
Keep both pieces of the bread. We’ll use both of them.
Butter the top side of both pieces of bread.
Lay the “outside frame” piece of bread in a skillet, buttered side down. Then spread some butter on the top side too.
Crack open the egg into a small bowl and beat the egg with a fork.
Add a small amount of green food coloring to the egg. Start with a very small amount of food coloring! You can always add more. 😉
Mix the food coloring into the egg.
Turn the skillet on to a medium heat. When the skillet is warmed up, add a little bit of butter into the opening of the shamrock shape.
Slowly pour the green egg mixture into the shamrock opening in the bread.
Turn the heat to low and cover the skillet with a lid. For best results, I would suggest you keep the egg & bread in this position while it cooks. I turned mine over to finish cooking it and the shamrock shape isn’t quite as clear as it might have been if I hadn’t turned it over.
When the egg is cooked through, remove it from the skillet to a plate to serve it. Now for the other piece of bread in the shape of a shamrock. I placed it in the skillet on a medium-low heat and toasted it on both sides.
I removed the shamrock from the skillet and with the butter side facing up, sprinkled it with some green sugar and a little bit of cinnamon.
And there you are! A breakfast fit for any leprechaun! 😉
I hope you’ll enjoy trying this out for St. Patrick’s Day! 🙂
