Green Eggs & Ham to Celebrate Dr. Seuss and his Birthday Month
It’s time to experiment!
Grab the picture book, Green Eggs & Ham by Dr. Seuss, and learn more about our friend Sam I Am. When you are finished, jump into the kitchen to check out my healthy version of Green Eggs and Ham to see if it’s a thumb’s up find just like Sam.
This recipe is a great way to build memories together and try something new all while squeezing in a few extra veggies along the way.
Green Eggs & 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:
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.
