Since St.Patrick’s Day is next week, LifeAsMom decided to theme her Ultimate Recipe Swap this week with that holiday in mind.

Honestly, I have never tried a different recipe for the holiday (usually I just wear green), but since my 3 year old is old enough to enjoy something, I thought a kid’s friendly recipe would be appropriate.

A friend gave me the idea for this fun (and simple) recipe. (Thanks, Melissa!)

Green Eggs and Ham

  • 8 eggs or 2 cups egg substitute
  • 2 Tbsp milk
  • 4 slices ham, diced
  • 1/4 teaspoon of salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon of pepper
  • 1-2 drops of green food coloring

You can also add it some fresh veggies like broccoli, green bell pepper, or spinach to give added nutrition. (Amazingly, both of my boys love broccoli-even though hubby doesn’t-, so I’ll be added that.)

And what better way to finish (or start) your meal, then by reading Dr. Seuss’s Green Eggs and Ham (I Can Read It All by Myself Beginner Books)

Do you have St. Patrick’s Day favorites? What are you planning on fixing?

    My kids love to have Green Eggs and Ham. We usually do it around March 1st in honor of Dr. Suess’ birthday. The first time I made it they were a bit grossed out but then realized it all tasted the same! LOL

    Green eggs and ham sounds like such a fun idea! I like to make crockpot corned beef, Irish soda bread, and a new recipe I just discovered, cheesy baked cabbage. Yum, now I’m really ready for dinner ;)

    This sounds like a fun idea! Maybe we will try it since I will have all my kids home on break!
    Thanks for the tip!
