Green Eggs & Ham to Celebrate Dr. Seuss and his Birthday Month with this yummy recipe from my friend Jodie Fitz!
I remember reading the book Green Eggs and Ham by Dr. Seuss as a child and it’s just as charming today as it was back then. My daughter got a kick out of cooking with our dear friend Jodie Fitz and making (and eating!) yummy Green Eggs and Ham.
No food coloring here, just healthy spinach to give those eggs their green color.
Green Eggs and Ham by Jodie Fitz
- 1 cup baby leaf spinach
- 3 eggs, large
- 3 tablespoons milk
- 1/8 cup ham off the bone, finely diced
- ¼ teaspoon onion powder
- 1/8 teaspoon sea salt, fine crystals
- 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
- Non-stick cooking spray
Other supplies needed:
- Frying pan
Place the spinach, cracked eggs, milk, onion powder, sea salt and black pepper into a blender. Blend until the spinach is fine enough that you can’t see it and the mixture has turned green, but not to much that your mixture is super frothy.
Coat a frying pan with nonstick cooking spray. Heat the pan over medium heat. Add the diced ham. Add the egg mixture & cook the eggs and ham in a scrambled egg fashion until the eggs are fully cooked; firm, not runny.
