Green Eggs and Ham!

My girls love the Dr. Seuss book, and recently the cartoon version was on ABC Family. Emeri told me she would like to try green eggs and ham sometime, and I told her that sounded like a great idea :) So, next shopping trip we're going to get some spinach and a ham steak, and make a slightly revised version of Jessica Seinfeld's Green Eggs from her Deceptively Delicious cookbook (I've checked it out from the library and love the recipes.... we just have to switch around a few ingredients in some recipes to make the dishes gluten-free... and, I like to use real butter instead of margarine :)


  • 2 tsp butter, softened
  • 1 lb baby spinach, washed and drained (or frozen spinach, thawed)
  • 3 Tbsp milk
  • 4 large eggs
  • 2 large egg whites
  • 1/2 tsp salt

1. Melt 1 tsp butter in large nonstick skillet over med/high. heat. Add spinach and cook until spinach wilts. Then add milk and cook to evaporate (1-2 more minutes). Transfer to food processor and puree, let  cool a few minutes.

2. In a large bowel, whisk the eggs with puree and salt. 

3. Add remaining tsp butter to skillet and heat until melted. Add the egg mixture, reduce heat to low, and cook, stirring occasionally (2-3 minutes).


*** Serve this with a Cooked Ham Steak, read Green Eggs and Ham and it becomes a meal to remember!
