Green Eggs and Ham
CATEGORIES
INGREDIENTS
  • 6 eggs
  • Milk
  • Butter
  • Cheese (I prefer Parmigiano Reggiano and cheddar)
  • Fully cooked ham steaks
  • Pineapple juice (room temp) or water
  • Green food coloring
DIRECTIONS
  1. Melt the butter, scramble the eggs.
  2. Add a splash of milk and a drop or two of the food coloring. DON'T overdo the coloring, it's better to go easy and work up.
  3. Mix it all up and add more coloring if necessary.
  4. When it starts to firm, add the cheeses and finish.
  5. Meanwhile, put the pineapple juice (or water) in a dish and add a drop or two of the food coloring - same rule as above. Turn the ham over a couple of times until it's the shade you want and then heat it either in the microwave or in the oven and it's ready.
  6. To top it off, we had green milk to wash it down.
RECIPE BACKSTORY
This is very simple, but it's a great idea for kids especially after they've read the story. My mom made this when we were kids to prove the story to us
