Are you looking for a low carb breakfast idea for St. Patrick's Day? These Shamrock Fried Eggs are delicious, healthy and a lot of fun for St. Patty's Day or any day of the year.

We make a big St. Patrick’s Day dinner every year, so I wanted to do something for breakfast this year. We eat very healthy normally, so I wanted to continue that over into this St. Patrick’s Day low carb breakfast idea.

I decided to make these Shamrock Fried Eggs. While I used green bell peppers for St. Patty’s Day, you can use any other color bell pepper as well. A colorful mix would be great for a spring brunch or Easter breakfast.

If your kids are normally averse to eating bell peppers, this low carb breakfast can be a fun way to introduce them! I find that kids are open to trying new things when they’re presented in a fun way.

I hope your family enjoys these Shamrock Fried Eggs as much as my family!
