Green Eggs and Ham – The Easy Way!

image_pdfimage_print

One of my favorite Dr. Seuss books is the infamous, Green Eggs and Ham.

When I was a preschool teacher, we made green eggs and ham in class every St. Patrick’s Day. Only we added green food color and made them REALLY green!


Here is a grown up version  – a healthy version that’s easy to make and tastes fantastic. Do you eat …

Are you ready to make a super easy, super tasty and good for you dish?

Here’s How to Do it:

Start by squeezing the spinach. Squeeze out some of the moisture. Then drop it into a blender.

Also add the cream and eggs to the blender and puree until fairly smooth and the mixture is evenly green.

Heat the oil in the pan.

Brown the ham pieces just a little bit on high to also evaporate  the liquid that is in the prepackaged ham steaks.

Reduce the heat to low. Then pour the eggs over the top and cover. Cook for about 5 minutes.

Remove the cover and gently turn the eggs, or stir them like scrambled eggs.

Sprinkle the parmesan over the top and cover again.

Heat for about 5 more minutes, or until the cheese is melted.

Remove from the heat and serve. That’s it.
