Green Eggs and Ham

Basic Scrambled Eggs

4 eggs

¼ cup milk

Salt and pepper

2 tsp. butter


Beat eggs, milk, salt and pepper in bowl until blended.  Heat butter in large nonstick skillet over medium heat until hot. Pour in egg mixture.  As eggs begin to set, gently pull the eggs across the pan with an inverted turner, forming large soft curds. Continue cooking - pulling, lifting and folding eggs - until thickened and no visible liquid egg remains. Do not stir constantly. Remove from heat. Serve immediately.


Green Eggs and Ham Variations:

  • Add 2-3 drops blue food coloring for 'green' eggs.  Top with fully cooked diced ham.
  • Wrap scrambled eggs and ham in a spinach tortilla, top with tomatillo salsa.
  • Fill whole wheat pita with a slice of deli ham, scrambled green eggs and a sprinkle of cheese.


Microwave Ham and Egg One-Minute Breakfast Bowl

1 thin slice deli ham (1 ounce)

1 egg, beaten

1 drop blue food coloring (optional)

Shredded Cheddar cheese


Line the bottom of an 8-oz. ramekin or custard cup with ham slice, folding ham in half, if necessary.  Pour egg over ham.  Microwave on HIGH 30 seconds; stir.  Microwave until egg is almost set, 15-30 seconds longer.  Top with cheese.  May be served in ramekin, or turned out onto a toasted English muffin.


Coffee Cup Scramble

2 eggs

2 TBL milk

1 drop blue food coloring (optional)

2 TBL shredded Cheddar cheese

Salt and pepper


Coat 12-oz. microwave-safe coffee mug with cooking spray. Add eggs and milk; beat until blended.  Microwave on HIGH 45 seconds; stir.  Microwave until eggs are almost set, 30-45 seconds longer.  Top with cheese, salt and pepper, grab it and go!

Egg Dippers

Cut a small "X" in the large end of hard-boiled eggs.  Insert a pretzel rod or bread stick, being careful not to split the egg.  Dip in Ranch dressing, and then dip in crushed goldfish crackers or finely chopped veggies for a fun and healthy after-school snack.
