Green Eggs & Ham
Yes I did, I made Green Eggs & Ham just like in the Dr. Seuss book. What a great recipe to feed the family on St Patrick’s Day too! Green Eggs & Ham was requested by my granddaughter and she wanted to help make them. Both grandkids cleaned their plate. Did you know that when you make this you do not use green food coloring? It was a simple meal not to say quick and it tastes just like regular scrambled eggs.
Crack the eggs into a small bowl being
careful not to get any eggshell into the bowl.
Whisk until thoroughly mixed.
Add 3 drops of blue food coloring. Yes
blue because blue and yellow makes green.
Whisk until combined.
Add the salt and pepper and whisk.
In a medium non stick pan over medium
low heat, cook the ham about 2 minutes
until hot, stirring frequently.
Slowly pour the egg mixture over the
ham trying to keep the ham in place.
Cook the egg turning it and
breaking it up as it cooks.
Place into serving bowls and serve.

- Slowly pour the egg mixture over the ham trying to keep the ham in place.
- Cook the eggs turning and breaking them up as they cook. Cook until the egg is fully cooked.

Thanks I couldn’t believe the grandkids ate it. I figured they did because it was their idea…lol
I doubt my grandkids would eat it either, but…
Scary but interesting! I will prepare it for Halloween. 😀
What a great idea! I was thinking St Patrick’s Day too.
😬😬😬. I can’t say that I’d like some of that?
Hahaha taste just like regular scrambled eggs. Kids had fun with it. 😂🤣
You know…I have one adventurous kid who will try anything but my others ones are like “ewww, mom that looks gross!”. I wish I was more adventurous 😂
Oh my god! They look strangely good to me! I remember reading about this in some book!
Haha they taste like regular eggs you just need to get by the color.
Thank god! Although I didn’t expect you to give a bad tasting recipe!
They are SO fun!! Have you ever used pumpkin seed oil to fry your eggs in? “Dr. Seuss” grandparents (parents?) cooked with this as did many people from the Austria region – they still do – and it makes the food green naturally. It has a wonderful flavor! Green eggs and Ham! My daughter traveled the region and now that is the only way she will eat her eggs – LOL!
No I have never heard of or tasted pumpkin seed oil…fascinating! When my granddaughter asked to make it she was shocked I said yes. It was a lot of fun.
It is definitely different….lol The grandkids loved them of course.
Yipes, theyre green all right! I just need some really dark shades to wear in a really darkly lit dining area, and I wouldnt know the difference to enjoy this. Fun post, Diane!
Hahaha it really was fun to make! The grandkids were thrilled! Thanks!
What a cool idea to do with the kids!
Yes they thought it was pretty cool! Grandma made brownie points that day..lol
I don’t think I could do it. I know it’s the same, but the color…and green is my favorite, but green eggs…I’m having flashbacks to when they brought out different colors of ketchup. Do you remember that?
OMG yes I do! I totally forgot about that and I hated it. Evidently so did everyone else it didn’t last long. Hahaha
How exciting. I am surprised they ate it. Maybe since they helped, it didn’t seem to be gross to them!
What fun you must have had!
My granddaughter asked me to make it. It was all her idea and her younger brother does anything she does so they ate all 4 eggs! ….kids lol
LOL, sounds like my kids when they were little! One was always trying to copy, or outdo the other!
I can’t imagine eating green eggs, but I bet they had fun!!
I may try them on a boat, I may try them with a goat.
You may try them everywhere! Lol
Lol I never would have thought of the blue and yellow making green
I made these a long time ago and used green. They looked disgusting!
How fun and what a great idea!
LOL thanks Valerie! Kids ask for the darnest things.
A great dish for the littlies.
Thanks they ate it all!
Right away I remembered the Dr. Suess story. Your concept is a positive welcome for St .Patrick’s Day, Easter and the Spring season.
Thank you so much! ..🥰
wonderful idea !
Thanks but my granddaughter is the one that gets credit for this’d post. I thought I’d die when she asked for it…lol
Aww you are such a sweet grandma she must be so thrilled to get her wishes come true 🙂
She was thank you!
Wow, this looks a bit crazy but I’m sure the grandkids must have loved it. And it must have been delicious to boot!
Oh they sure did…lol Thanks Erica!
Ha ha – never had green eggs and ham, but I loved Dr. Seuss and love his quotes.
Grandkids were so excited!
I’ll bet – who doesn’t like Dr. Seuss? And he has a new book coming out – a newly discovered manuscript by him! (Next they will want the “roast beast” that the Grinch helps to carve! 🙂
Yes I saw that! How exciting!
Yes, it will be another treasure …
How fun! Dr. Seuss month is always a treat, isn’t it?
Absolutely Kristen! The best children’s books ever!
What fun! Definitely great for St. Patrick’s Day coming up.
Yes it would be perfect for that!
How old are your grandkids? Mine is going to be 11 this year and he loves to craft with me, but has a very short attention span. Used to help Darcy with baking, but even that is apparently no fun for him anymore – darn technology! LOL
Oh yes technology is destroying grandma time! Mine are 4 & Sunday my Granddaughter turns 8. I can still do crafts with my granddaughter but my grandson is either too young or just not interested.
Omg how cook
Thanks it was a big hit!
😮. Oh yeah. Have to try this for my kids!
They will love it!
I made a test run tonight 🙂
How was it? I think next time I will use 2 drops of food coloring instead of three. Just curious what that color would be like.
It was good. I used 4 drops for a darker green but I believe that 2 drops is enough
I found this a day too late! I’m bookmarking for next March 17th.
Awwww but there is next year!
