Green Eggs and Ham Recipe

Ingredients

  • 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

Instructions

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.
