St. Patrick's Day Green "Shamrock" Frittatas (2 ways)

8:53 PM

St. Patrick's Day is this week. Are you ready? Last year I made these Shamrock Frittatas for part of our St. Patrick's Day celebration and it was a huge hit, so I decided to make it again this year!  These are really quite simple to make, but they are so fun! 

When I can, I like to avoid artificial food coloring, and I love that are green without any dye/food coloring. These are a great way to start off your St. Patrick's Day. And, they're a great way to sneak some extra veggies into your kids', your husband's, or even your own diet! 

There are two ways to go about this recipe, one is to finely chop the spinach and kale and mix it into the egg, and the other is to puree the spinach and kale with the egg in a blender or food processor.

Green Shamrock Frittatas



  • 3 eggs
  • Salt and Pepper to taste
  • 1/2 cup spinach, packed
  • 1/2 cup kale, packed
  • 1 green bell pepper, sliced cross-wise
  • Pecorino, Asiago, Parmesean, or your favorite hard cheese, grated
  • Coconut Oil

Method 1:
In a small bowl, beat the eggs with the salt and pepper.  Finely chop the spinach and kale.  Mix into the beaten egg.

Heat a small frying pan over medium-low heat.  Add a dab of coconut oil, about 1 Tbsp, and let melt.

Pour egg mixture into pan.  Cook until edges are set, about 5-7 minutes.

Sprinkle a thin layer of grated cheese of choice over the top.  Press a slice of bell pepper into the center.  Cover and reduce heat to low.  Continue to cook until egg is cooked through and cheese is melted.  Another 5-10 minutes or so.

Gently slide out of pan onto a plate or serving tray.  Enjoy!


Method 2:
Stuff the spinach and kale into a blender or food processor.  Add the salt and pepper.  Crack the eggs on top.  Pulse until blended, green, and smooth.

Meanwhile, heat a small frying pan over medium-low heat.  Add a dab of coconut oil, about 1 Tbsp, and let melt.

Pour egg mixture into pan.  Cook until edges are set, about 5-7 minutes.

Sprinkle a thin layer of grated cheese of choice over the top.  Press a slice of bell pepper into the center.  Cover and reduce heat to low.  Continue to cook until egg is cooked through and cheese is melted.  Another 5-10 minutes or so.

Gently slide out of pan onto a plate or serving tray.  Enjoy!
