St. Patrick’s Day: Food and Drink Ideas


Irish or not St. Patrick’s Day is fun to celebrate!  These are not traditionally Irish but they are fun and simple ways to celebrate all day! The first recipe is great for breakfast.  Eggs fried in a “shamrock”.  Super easy and a fun way to start the day!

St. Patricks Day falls on a Friday this year.  Enjoy your Friday Night Pizza night with shamrock personal pizzas.  The dough is super easy to make and you will know exactly whats in it.  No time for making your own dough?  Most grocery stores have fresh made dough available in the deli section.    Sliced bell peppers are the shamrocks on these pizzas.  You could add any green toppings you want.  Anything! Have fun!   Finish the night with Lime Sherbet Floats.  A fun twist on a root beer float with sherbet and Sprite.

A few other healthy, fun ideas:  Greens and eggs.  Scramble eggs with greens like spinach.  Pesto.  Great on a pizza.  Green smoothies.  Eat the rainbow. Place veggies in the order they appear in the rainbow.

Shamrock Eggs

1 bell pepper remove the ends, ribs, and seeds. Slice the bell pepper into thin slices.  They will look like shamrocks.  Heat a pan over medium heat with coconut oil or butter whatever you prefer.  Place pepper slices in pan break egg into the middle of the pepper. Cook to preference.


Shamrock Personal Pizzas

Pizza Dough

In 3/4 Cup warm water disolve 1 packet active dry yeast and 2 teaspoons sugar. Let sit for 10 minutes

In a bowl mix 1 Cup all purpose flour, 1 Cup Whole Wheat flour, 1 teaspoon salt.  (This recipe is super easy to make gluten free by using 1:1 gluten free flour.  My favorite it Bob’s Red Mill).

Make a well in the dry ingredients.  Add 2 tablespoons olive oil.  Then add in the wet ingredients and mix.

Next, on a floured surface knead for about 10 minutes.

Oil a bowl place dough in cover.  Let rise for 1 hour.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Cut dough into four pieces.  Roll out into small circles.  Add sauce and cheese.  Slice the bell pepper into thin slices using one for stem pieces.

Bake checking after 15 minutes.   The dough should be golden and cheese should be bubbly.

*If you made this with gluten free flour you will need to add about a 1/4 cup more water.


Come on how cute are these?!

And for dessert these lime sherbet floats will be a hit! Great for the kids and adults.  Who doesn’t love a float?!

Lime Sherbet Floats

In a glass place 2 scoops lime sherbet, top with Sprite.  Serve with a fun straw!


These recipes were a lot of fun to make and were a hit in my house! Have a Happy St. Patricks Day!
