Shamrock Toasties

IngredientsIrish-shamrock-toasties

– 1 Green pepper

– 1 Whole Wheat English muffin

– 1 oz Cheddar cheese

Directions

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. Toast half an English muffin, and then top it with a slice of Cheddar and the pepper shamrock. Place the muffin on a tray, and then broil it in a toaster oven until the cheese is melted.
