In our house, we enjoy eating breakfast alot, but it’s never at the traditional breakfast hour – because well, we like to sleep! We do “breakfast for dinner” sometimes because at dinnertime we are more likely to have the desire to cook something special. So last night, we had green eggs & ham breakfast sandwiches and steamed asparagus with hollandaise sauce.



The story begins with some shopping for some Dallas Cowboys brand petit jean ham at walmart. It was so pleasant to see all the colorful spring and easter stuff for sale, because I’m really excited for summer to get here! We came across alot of great deals, and some unexpected {good} surprises. You can view the entire shop on google+ here.


One of my favorite things we spotted while we were there, was the Batman pajamas – complete with velcro superhero cape. This goes without saying that JP is fully into his “I Idolize superhero’s” phase.


Ohh Ree, how I’d love to have your cookbook – I’m buying it next time, I swear it!


That evening, we read Green Eggs and Ham together – I told JP we would have it for dinner the following day and he giggled and thought it would be silly to have green eggs and ham, but nonetheless excited to try it.


So to assemble my green eggs and ham sandwiches, here’s what you need:

Green Eggs and Ham Recipe
Recipe type: Breakfast
How to make green eggs and ham breakfast sandwiches.
  • 1 pkg of english muffins
  • 1 pkg of Petit Jean Peppered Ham
  • 1 pkg of eggs
  • green food coloring
  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • Circle cookie cutter
  • Silicone cupcake cups
  1. Boil about 1" of water in a pan. Spray the silicone liners down with nonstick spray and add a few drops of green food coloring (optional) in the mold. Crack eggs, put one in each baking mold and stir gently as to not break the yolks, but mix the coloring into the egg whites. Add more color if desired. Submerge into the boiling water, and keep an eye on it.



So while the eggs cooked, I began to make my circle cuts of ham to fit on my toasted english muffin.


If only you could “smell” a picture! This ham smelled soooo good as I got upclose and personal with it while taking these photos.


It smelled so good that my darling little dog just couldn’t contain herself. She was circling under my feet the entire time I was making this! So, she got scraps cause she’s such a sweet dog.


Finally the egg was ready! I even went as far as steaming some asparagus and hollandaise sauce, but I’m not going to embarass myself by trying to explain how, because it was a big fail! I followed this recipe, and I thought it would have been foolproof after watching the video.. Oh well, I guess I get E for effort on this one!


So…… When I asked JP:


Me: “Here’s your green eggs and ham JP. Remember we talked about it yesterday? Try and eat some for me”


JP: *picks at it*


JP: “Don’t like it, green eggs and ham” he declares, as he turns away from his plate and grimaces.

Me: *sigh* All that work for an “I don’t like it”

Ahh, but how can I get mad at this face?

I LOVE what you did with your eggs!!! And my girls said you have “the cutest” pup. 🙂


Thanks!! 🙂 I know, he’s quite the little ham!


Hi Jayna,

Great idea! My daughter loves it. One additional suggestion. if you separate the whites from the yolks first, you can then put the whites together, add the coloring to all the whites and stir/blend the whites. This will result in more uniform green color. you can then recombine and distribute the whites (now greens 🙂 with the yolks in the individual muffin tins. it also allows you to use less coloring, resulting in some nice pastel greens.


That’s a great idea, I’ll have to try them like that – if there’s ever a next time!
