Green Eggs and Ham

I love this play on Dr. Seuss Green Eggs and Ham! There’s nothing like a nice hearty breakfast. I developed my own grown up version of “Green Eggs and Ham” that is full of irresistible Mediterranean flavors. In place of the ham, I usedΒ  bacon.

Perfect for St. Patrick’s Day or any special occasion you feel like enjoying a great breakfast!Β Let’s take a look πŸ™‚

You’ll need 8 lovely eggs.

How To Make Green Eggs and Ham

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Quarter washed red potatoes and set in mixing bowl. Pour in vegetable broth, enough that potatoes are wet. Season to taste. I used ground pepper, garlic salt, and paprika. Stir seasoned potatoes and place on baking sheet. Cook for 30 minutes or until fork tender.
  2. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. When hot, add spinach leaves. Cook and stir until wilted. Remove from heat and set aside.
  3. Place eggs, milk, salt and pepper into a large mixing bowl. Whisk to combine then pour into a large hot skillet over medium heat that’s been sprayed with cooking spray. With a rubber spatula, stir eggs until scrambled. Be careful to not overcook eggs. See photos. Add spinach, roasted red peppers, olives, bacon and feta cheese, stir gently to combine.
  4. Place roasted potatoes into serving bowls and top with scrambled eggs. Serve warm.

Time to add all of the good stuff.

Place the roasted potatoes into serving bowls then top with the scrambled eggs. Mmm! For the potatoes, I quartered red potatoes, set the potatoes in a mixing bowl and poured in vegetable stock to get them wet so the seasoning will stick. Seasoning I used were pepper, garlic salt, and paprika. Then, I baked until fork tender–which was about 30 minutes at 375 degrees.
