Green Eggs and Ham

In honor of Dr. Seuss' birthday (born March 2, 1904), it has become a tradition at our house to have Green Eggs and Ham for dinner.

Separate the egg whites from the egg yolks and add three or four drops of green food coloring. Whisk the egg whites and add them to the hot frying pan. I spray the pan with Pam first so the eggs don't stick. Cook for about 20 seconds. Add the yolks to the pan and cover with the egg whites (now green). Cook until the yolks are firm. In a second pan, fry up some thick slices of ham. I usually just buy four thick slices of ham from the deli counter since we don't usually eat ham. Serve with toast.

Green scrambled eggs
Crack the shell of a hard-boiled egg (do not remove shell). Place the egg in water with green food coloring for about ten minutes. When you remove the shell, you will have a green marbled egg.
