St. Patrick’s Day Recipe: Grown-up Green Eggs and Ham


Green Eggs and Ham Recipe

green eggs and ham

I still remember being in 1st grade and reading Dr. Seuss’ Green Eggs and Ham. I could probably recite most of the book if I was inclined to try but I do digress. I also remember the day they made us try Green Eggs and Ham. I was not an adventurous kid and did not like to try new things. My mom learned the hard way once with Pierogies.  However, surrounded by class mates I was not going to be the only one not trying it. I soon realized that it tasted the same as regular eggs and ham. Now that I am older my palate is slightly more expanded and I want more flavors with dishes. I have amped up my recipe so that I get the flavor but it is not too much to turn off for my children.

Grown-Up Green Eggs and Ham!



8 eggs

1 can spinach, drained  (You could also use fresh spinach)

1 cup ham (diced)

1 tsp butter/margarine (you may also substitute cooking spray)

In a separate bowl mix together chopped ham and spinach

  1. This looks really yummy! Thanks for sharing. Definitely much better than just turning the eggs green with good coloring. 🙂

  2. This sure does look good. Last year, my 5 year old grandson wanted green eggs and ham for breakfast so this was funny reading it from you. I had just put a bit of food coloring in his eggs. They did look nasty to be honest and he really didn’t eat too much of them. Think he thought so too. I like your recipe

  3. This is so cute and yummy looking! I think that this would be great for Brunch as a surprise for my family on St. Patty’s Day. Haven’t done anything for them on the day in the last couple of years… time to break out the pots and pans!! Thanks

  4. Looks delicious!! Thanks for the recipe! You’ve got some great ideas for making St. Patty’s day fun and tasty!!

  5. I would make green eggs and ham for my kids on St. Patrick’s day. It consisted of scrambled eggs with green food dye. Your recipe looks much tastier!!

  6. This is such a fun recipe to serve the family on St Patricks day! We love ham & eggs with toast so this is a fun idea that will make everyone laugh when I put it on the table
