Green Eggs and Ham

    Newer Older

    My mom made these once for us as kids. But she had to scramble the eggs cause she wasn't sure how to get it to change colors, also something about the ham not working right. This time I went all out (except that darn yolk!).

    Step 1)Seperate the yolk from the whites - DO NOT BREAK THE YOLK (that's why you see only one yolk)

    Step 2)Add Food coloring to the egg whites. The color you see in the uncooked yolk will be much darker than the color after they are done. So mix those egg whites til you are good and ready.

    Step 3)Gently add yolk back. Don't break it.

    Now for the ham, I like to have a souther flavor to my pork. I made a special concoction that is vinegar based BBQ sauce. Use whatever you like, water is a good non flavor.

    Step 1) Find the ham you need. Drier is better cause it helps absorb more.

    Step 2) Get a clear sauce (water works too) mix in the color you want

    Step 3) Brush on, or soak your ham with the new colored mix. Remember: You are going to be painting on a pink canvas so take that into consideration.

    Step 4) Cook up your food like you normally would.

      Just found this through Neatorama. My wife made green eggs and ham two days ago - scrabled eggs with spinach (turns them green) sitting in 'ham cups'. Daughter loved it. Your's is way more authentic! Great stuff!

      I have to try your version of green eggs and ham. My version has a green yolk instead. I cut and colored a slice of cheese before I made an over-easy egg. First, I cut the cheese using a small wine glass (perfectly round). Then add two or three drops of food coloring directly on the cheese (just brush it around until the color is uniform). Once the egg was cooked, I turned the heat all the way down and placed the cheese right over the yolk to melt a little (just enough to fuse together) before serving with green ham.
