You Will Like Green Eggs and Ham. You Will Like Them, Sam I Am!
“I do not like them in a house. I do not like them with a mouse. I do not like them here or there. I do not like them anywhere.”
If Sam I Am had my green eggs and ham on that plate, he wouldn’t have been running around all over town trying to give away samples. They would be gone before he could utter the sentence “Do you like green eggs and ham?”
The incredible, edible egg. That is the subject of this month’s Kitchen Bootcamp with My Kitchen Addiction. In honor of Dr. Seuss’ birthday on March 2nd and the National Education Association (NEA) ‘Read Across America’ event, I decided to make my version of Green Eggs and Ham. The perfect fried egg atop an english muffin and center-cut ham, paired with a walnut pesto. Take that Dr. Seuss.
Mis en Place:
Freakin’ delicious! The walnut pesto has a sharp bite that counters well with the mild, runny egg. A medley of flavors that are light enough for breakfast, but could take on brunch as well. Freakin’ delicious! I first made this walnut pesto with a Corn Soup for Valentine’s day and I realized it would go very well with something like this. I was right.
“Say! I like green eggs and ham! I do! I like them, Sam-I-am!”

- I made walnut pesto, but the traditional pine nut pesto should work well also.
- This is a total kid friendly dish, but fry the eggs hard and leave off the pesto if they are not hip to it and add the food coloring.
