Green Eggs and Ham is the perfect way to celebrate Dr. Seuss’s birthday! We’ve included instructions on dying your eggs and how to cook them just like Sam I Am!

Green eggs and ham or bacon

Aren’t we all a bit like Guy Am I with food sometimes? Something is new and different and maybe looks a bit weird so we don’t want to even try it. We are so glad to have tried and actually like green eggs and ham! It is a whimsical breakfast that we love to make on Dr. Seuss’s birthday with the kids. 

Say! I like green eggs and ham!
So I will eat them in a box.
And I will eat them with a fox.
And I will eat them in a house.
And I will eat them with a mouse.
And I will eat them here and there.
Say! I will eat them anywhere!
I do so like green eggs and ham!
Thank you! Thank you, Sam I Am!

  • When is Dr. Seuss’s Birthday?

    March 2nd! We love to make up a batch of green eggs and ham to celebrate.

  • How do you dye just the egg whites?

    Wondering what the secret is to green eggs? You separate the yolks from the whites and set them aside. Dye just the egg whites, and then add the yolks back on top when you’re ready to cook!

  • Other Ways to Celebrate Dr. Seuss’s Birthday:

    • Wear your best whimsical socks and show them off
    • Wear red and white like the Cat in the Hat
    • Read your favorite Dr. Seuss book
    • Create Dr. Seuss inspired crafts: truffula trees, wocket for your pocket, DIY Thing 1 and Thing 2 shirts, etc.

If you like this recipe, you may be interested in these other delicious breakfast recipes:

Green eggs and ham or bacon
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 drops green food coloring
  • 1-2 tablespoons butter
  • To die your eggs green, first separate the yolks from the whites. Do it carefully so that your yolk remains in tact. I put each component into a separate bowl. So for those 2 eggs I used 4 bowls.
  • add a couple drops of green food coloring to the egg whites and whisk it in until the coloring is well incorporated. Carefully slide the egg yolk back onto the egg white.
  • Melt a tablespoons or two of butter in a skillet over medium heat.
  • Slide the egg onto the skillet. Cover with a lid or aluminum foil. Reduce heat to medium-low and cook for about 2 minutes.
  • It is done when the whites are completely set on top around the yolk. If you want the yolk to set as well, just reduce the heat all the way to low and cook a couple minutes longer.
