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!

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!

    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

    What a great idea for creating Green Eggs and Ham!

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

    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.

    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!!!
