Green Eggs and Ham

Serves 2 

We thought we’d kick off the weekend with a fun, kid-friendly recipe to celebrate St. Patty’s Day. Just keep in mind that baking soda and vinegar will work wonders on a food-coloring-stained child and clothing.

4 Eric’s Eggs

1 – 12 oz. ham steak

Cabot butter (for greasing skillets)

Green food coloring

1 small cat wearing a hat (optional)


Grease two skillets. Turn heat on low-medium.  Put ham steak in one skillet and brown both sides. The ham is pre-cooked so there’s no need to really cook it through, browning the sides and heating it up just gives it a better flavor.

Crack eggs into two bowls, separating yolks into one bowl and whites into another. An easy way to separate eggs is to crack the egg with one hand into the other and let the white slip through your fingers while gently keeping the yolk in your palm.

Put 6-8 drops of food coloring and water in with the whites and whisk until fully combined. Pour whites (now green) into second skillet and drop yolks, evenly spaced, on top. Watch for the whites to solidify (usually no more than two minutes). Slide a wide spatula under the eggs and flip gently. Count to 10 and plate the eggs and ham. Salt & pepper to taste.
