Recipe: Green Eggs {and Ham}

Pin It

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}
 
Ingredients
Instructions
  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

    Can’t wait to try this, it looks delicious! Do you buy your butter from the farmer’s market or is there a specific brand you get from Earth Fare? Thanks for all the recipes and info, you’re awesome!

    You rock!

    I would say another good side dish option would be homemade whole wheat pita pockets…so you can have a Wocket in your (pita)Pocket, too! Lol

  • Tiffany

    What a great idea for creating Green Eggs and Ham!

  • Pam

    If you put the eggs and greens and blend them together, the entire eggs come out green. My kids thought is was really cool!!

  • Lauren

    I give my 20 month old green eggs a few times a week! Honestly he probably thinks that scrambled eggs are always green! I puree it really well because he’s going through a really picky stage right now and it’s better if there aren’t any pieces he can pick out. They’re yummy and it’s an easy way to get some greens in him!

    I have a bunch of kale in my crisper that I was wondering how to use (my previous at kale chips didn’t go over so well). This will be perfect! p.s. I’ve enjoyed following your website immensely. I can (almost) make your granola recipe from scratch. Thanks for all the hard work you put into your blog.

    I was wondering about the sugar content in ham and bacon. When I looked in the grocery store it seemed like they all had added sugar. Is there a brand that doesn’t?

      We oftentimes buy uncured ham from our local farmer’s market. The best storebrand I’ve seen (for both ham and bacon) is Applegate Farms organic.

    Love it! My son is allergic to eggs, so we did something similar with brown rice for him.

  • Erin

    Love this! Can’t wait to try it!!

    We juiced Kale in our Omega juicer and used the green juice to color home made frosting for St. Patricks Day treats! EASY!!!

  • Sara

    We’re going to make this for dinner tomorrow night!

  • green eggs are our friday night ‘fuss free’ speciality! my kids even request it when staying at their grandparents. such an awesome way to boost their intake of veggies, particularly spinach.

  • Laura

    Made my Dr. Seuss toothpicks, ham, green eggs and heart shaped toast this morning for my family. I loved it. My girls loved it. The “green” eggs, however, weren’t their favorite simply because of the green presentation. Oh well. It was a homerun in my book because my husband cleaned his plate! What a fun start to our day. Thank you for sharing all your great ideas.

  • mandy

    so clever! thank you! we just finished our breakfast. was a big hit!

  • Anna

    Packed this in my son’s lunch today. He was very excited about it. Thanks!

  • Angel Scalia

    love your site, especially loved your husband comments, that’s what Real men are supposed to be like! Keep up the great work. Thank you

  • You read my mind! I dropped my preschooler off this morning and learned that they were making green eggs and ham. Ick! My head was spinning-no food coloring please. What a great idea you have. Thanks for sharing.

  • Donna D.

    I made these this morning!!
    AMAZING RESPONSE – “Oh mom, this breakfast was sooo good today, THANK YOU!” {by:Chris 17 and Warren 12}
    We used chopped kale and green onions in the eggs.(Very attractive color!) There was a dash of green Tobasco to add a little bit of flavor. This was served with organic nitrate free ham breakfast slices and heart shaped wheat free biscuits along with a dollop of raw milk butter. We had freshly made Thai tea to drink.
    YOU were my inspiration…..making fun memories for my children…..thank you, thank you!

  • what a fun idea! i regularly use spinach in my eggs– and whatever leftover veggies we have on hand. i’m so used to throwing kale into soups, etc that for some reason I never considered tossing it into our scrambled eggs! thanks for this idea, and all of your wonderful posts. this is one of my favorite peer blogs to read. keep up the wonderful writing and inspiration!

  • I love this!! I skipped green eggs this year since we just cut out all artificial color. I wish I read this yesterday! We will be sure to have a Suess day soon and give this a go. THANKS for all you do.

  • Gina Lindsay

    This looks yummy! I almost skipped the green eggs too, but decided to make deviled eggs mixed with frozen spinach for lunch and they were a big hit.

  • Pamela Erickson

    I made Green Eggs combining Pesto(I had made myself and frozen) Eggs and this recipe for kale eggs and it turned out great.
    Thanks for the great idea .

    Just made these eggs this morning! My one year old was getting sick of just regular scrambled eggs. He Loved these…he ate about half of the batch! But i did only use 4 eggs and reduced the rest of the ingredients a bit. Thank you so much for all you do for those of us who want to go to real food but didn’t know where to start. I am officially obsessed with your blog…thanks so much!
