One of my very favorite activities to do on Dr. Seuss’ birthday is to make Green Eggs & Ham and read Green Eggs and Ham.
*Warning: Most kids love this. Most dads aren’t so sure about this. 😉
- 1/2 cup milk
- 6 eggs
- 1/4 – 1/2 cup chopped ham
- Blue or green food coloring (or a natural alternative)
- Salt and pepper to taste
1) Grease and heat skillet over medium heat. Crack eggs into mixing bowl and add milk. Add a drop or two of blue food coloring and whisk together.
2) Pour into skillet. Add ham to the egg/milk mixture. Cook until egg mixture begins to thicken around the bottom and edges.
3) Use a spatula to lift and fold the cooked portion to the top, so the liquid portion flows underneath. Cook until all of the egg mixture is thickened. “Scramble” the eggs with the spatula. Serve!
What do you think? Is it delicious or is it disgusting?
The vote was split at our house — two people thought it was delicious, two people thought it tasted good but looked terrible (almost bad enough they didn’t want to finish eating it), and one person abstained from voting!
