Green Eggs and Ham Recipes Said Sam I Am – In Honor of Dr. Suess’ Birthday!

Have you ever fixed green eggs and ham?

There are so many, many ways you see, to have green eggs and ham. I’ll show you! Come with me…..

I have to admit I never made green eggs and ham so I decided to look for some recipes online. The easiest way to have green eggs and ham is to add green food coloring and diced ham to scrambled eggs. I found so many different ways to fix green eggs and ham. Utterly amazing!

Food Network has recipes from many of the chefs you may follow. Rachel Ray has a Green Eggs & Ham recipe. How about Green Deviled Eggs & Ham from Aida Mollencamp. Here’s a Green Eggs & Ham recipe from Tyler Florence that looks to be quite different than the others I found.

Paula Dean has 2 green eggs and ham recipes on her website. Green Eggs and Ham Omelet (gets its green coloring from spinach) from Food editor Sarah Carey. Green Eggs and Ham (gets its green coloring from arugula) from Paula Dean.


Yield: 2-3 servings
Prep Time: 5 min.
Cook Time: 5 min.
  • 1 glass mixing bowl (medium)
  • Whisk
  • Frying Pan/skillet
  • Spatchula
  • 4 Eggs
  • 1/4 cup milk (optional)
  • 1 Tbsp butter
  • 2-3 drops of Green-Food Coloring (some recipes call for blue)
  • 1/4 cup Ham
  • Salt and pepper (if desired)
Crack the eggs into the bowl. Add milk (if desired). Add 2-3 drops of green-food coloring. Add seasoning (if desired). Beat the ingredients until the color is mixed throughout. You can mince the ham and add it to the eggs (or cook the ham separately, and serve it on the side).
Heat the pan, and add butter (let it melt). Pour the eggs into the pan, cook at medium heat for 2-3 minutes (until the eggs have begun to set), and then turn/fold the eggs over with the spatchula). Cut (or chop) the green egg into pieces–however you prefer it.

    As a vegetarian, can’t eat the ham, but tofu or tempeh will do instead. And Happy (belated) B-Day dr. Seuss! Grinch is y all-time favorite so the green eggs is appropriate for that, too.

  12. Rich Hicks says:

    Must say this is the first time I have heard of adding coloring to eggs. What a great and fun way to surprise everyone some morning with a big plate of green eggs and ham!

  13. Aw, how much fun that would be to make for the kids. Happy Birthday to Dr. Suess!
