Aren’t we all a little bit like Guy? Do I eat sometimes? Some things are new and different, maybe seem a little weird, so we don’t even want to try. We were so excited to try it and really enjoyed the green eggs and ham! Here’s a whimsical breakfast we love to make with the kids on Dr. Seuss’ birthday.

  • When is Dr. Seuss’ birthday?

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

  • How do you dye only egg whites?

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

  • Other ways to celebrate Dr. Seuss’ birthday:

    • Put on your best whimsical socks and show them off
    • Dress in red and white like the cat in the hat

Green Eggs and Ham or Bacon

raw material

  • 2 Egg
  • 2 drop green food coloring
  • 1-2 tablespoon butter


  • To make an egg green, first separate the yolk from the white. Do this carefully so your yolk remains intact. I put each component into a separate bowl. So for those 2 eggs, I used 4 bowls.

  • Add a few drops of green food coloring to the egg whites and whisk until the coloring is well incorporated. Carefully slide the yolks back into the egg whites.

  • Melt a tablespoon or two of butter in a saucepan over medium heat.

  • Slide eggs onto skillet. Cover with a lid or aluminum foil. Reduce heat to medium-low and cook for about 2 minutes.

  • It’s done when the whites are completely coated around the yolks. If you want the yolk to set as well, just reduce the heat all the way to low and cook for a few minutes longer.
