Festive For St. Patrick’s Day!!

St. Patrick’s Day is this Monday, serve something festive to show your green spirit!! There are many delicious treats that you can serve at your KES Club that are fun, nutritious, green and festive!

See below for a yummy treat that is great for breakfast or as a snack:

Shamrock Toasties


– 1 Green pepper

– 1 Whole Wheat English muffin

– 1 oz Cheddar cheese


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.
