How to Make Green Eggs and Ham

Read Across America is happening on March 2, which would have been Dr. Seuss’ 114th birthday. Dr. Seuss will be celebrated by kids all over the country, so what better way to celebrate with your kids than to feed them green eggs and ham? It’s not a typo when we say to use blue food coloring because eggs are yellow and yellow + blue = green. See? There’s another learning opportunity. Here are a couple of recipes to help you out. They both serve 4.

Green Eggs and Ham (with food coloring)

Ingredients
• 4 eggs
• 2-3 drops blue food coloring
• Diced ham
• Salt and black pepper, to taste

Directions
Set skillet on stove to med/low heat and add a small amount of oil or butter if desired. Crack eggs into a bowl. Add blue food coloring until desired green color is reached and whisk together. Add diced ham. Pour into preheated skillet. Stir while cooking to keep eggs from overcooking or burning. Take them off the heat when they still look wet, but not runny.
Serve immediately.

Green Eggs and Ham (without food coloring)

Ingredients
• 4 large eggs
• 1/2 cup packed fresh spinach leaves
• Salt and black pepper, to taste
• 1/4 cup shredded cheddar or mozzarella cheese (optional)

Directions
Combine the eggs and spinach in a blender. Mix until well combined. It will be frothy. Heat a skillet over medium-low heat and spray with cooking spray. Add the egg mixture and cook, stirring occasionally, until eggs are cooked through and fluffy. Season to taste with salt and pepper and serve with mozzarella or cheddar cheese (if desired).
