Go Green for Breakfast with Healthy Green Eggs and Ham RecipeIt’s time to experiment for St. Patrick’s Day! Why not go green for breakfast?

Earlier this month, we celebrate Dr. Seuss’ birthday by creating a fun Green Eggs & Ham recipe. These green eggs are also perfect for your St. Patrick’s Day celebration! The best part? You can sneak in some extra veggies because these eggs get their green color from spinach, not food coloring!

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.

Here are a few lessons kids can learn with this recipe:

  • Stovetop safety
  • How to crack an egg
  • How to scramble eggs
  • Dicing (Note: the ham can be diced with a butter knife for younger children)
  • Measuring
  • Cooking temperatures

Green Eggs & Ham

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Serves 2

Ingredients:

  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 cup baby spinach
  • 3 tablespoons 1% milk
  • ¼ teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/8 cup ham off the bone, finely diced

Directions:

  1. Place eggs, spinach, milk, onion powder, salt and pepper into 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.
  2. Heat skillet coated with nonstick cooking spray over medium heat. Add ham and egg mixture. Cook eggs 3-5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until fully cooked.
