Recipe: Green Eggs {and Ham}

Until I had kids in school I never realized how many holidays and special occasions could be celebrated. Aside from the standard ones like Halloween and Valentine’s Day there’s also the 100th Day of School, President’s Day, and Football Fridays. And apparently tomorrow is Dr. Seuss’s birthday, which means it’s yet another day filled with fun themed activities including food of course! Plus who can resist bringing one of Dr. Seuss’s most legendary books to life…Green Eggs and Ham! No need to break out the nasty artificial green dye though, see below for a much more nutritious (and delicious) alternative. Eggs and kale make a surprisingly good combination and once you’re done you can check “eating your greens for the day” off your list. But whether you are a Dr. Seuss fan or not you can still enjoy this dish for breakfast (lunch or dinner). I promise it will taste just as good without the colorful toothpicks. :) Enjoy!

Green Eggs {and Ham}
  1. Combine first 5 ingredients in a blender (including the S&P) and blend until the greens are pureed into little bits.
  2. Heat a big pat of butter (don’t be stingy!) in a frying pan over medium low heat.
  3. Once the butter has melted pour the egg mixture into the warm pan. Let it sit for a couple minutes before you begin to stir and scramble with a spatula. Cook until eggs are done all the way through.
  4. Serve warm with ham and biscuits

      This sounds delicious! I do something similar with spinach, but I will definitely try it with kale next time.
      The only thing I would suggest, is that you not add the eggs in until the other ingredients have been blended. Over mixing eggs causes them to be less fluffy and overall not have as nice a texture. I’d whizz up the other ingredients and then just mix the eggs for a few seconds.
      : )

      I made these this morning. My husband was skeptical at first, but he loved them! They were very tasty! You don’t taste the kale, or at least I didn’t. Thanks for providing a website with real recipes!!

      I am excited to try as my son has asked for green eggs and ham for his birthday breakfast. He is picky so I was doubly excited to read the recipe was well received by children :). Thank you for the healthy alternative !

      I added some veggies while cooking (peppers, mushrooms) and tossed the ham in as well. My 2 year old LOVED this, and we had to read the book aloud as we ate, of course. She was still talking about this dish the next day. Thanks for helping me look like a genius in my daughter’s eyes! :)

      thanks also for all your recipes and this blog overall. I absolutely love it.

      This looks like a great recipe idea! It sounds like a wonderful way to add veggies into food in the mornings. My husband and I often eat eggs for breakfast on weekday mornings, so I wanted to ask: can we blend a batch of this and then have it sitting in the fridge as an egg mix, that we can pour a bit of into a skillet every morning to cook with? Or does cracking the eggs cause them to start to go bad quickly? I didn’t know if this blend would last for a week in the fridge. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

        Hi Allison. No, I would use them fresh. Bacteria can potentially build up on eggs rather quickly once cracked. While the cracked eggs alone might be okay for a couple days in the fridge, once you mix in other things, you increase the rick of bacteria development. :) ~Amy

      We made these for breakfast this morning. We cooked sausage with diced peppers and onions then added the green eggs. When it was done cooking we topped it all with parmesan cheese. All three of the kids, my husband, and I loved it.

      Jackpot. I knew there had to be a way! And this was just what I thought!
