Green Eggs and Ham

Who doesn’t love Dr. Suess? I was always a fan of the silly rhymes. AAAnd I’m particularly driven towards anything that involves food. Particularly breakfast food.

So why not a play on Green Eggs and Ham. You can find hundreds of different recipes out there when it comes to Green Eggs and Ham. This one is just one that I made up. A fancier name would probably be something about poached eggs and avocado cream sauce. But that sounds much less fun.

All sorts of delicious things in there with veggies, and protein to keep you full into the lunch hour!


1 slice Multigrain toast

2 eggs, poached medium (or longer or lighter if you prefer)

1 slice ham

1/2 cup sauteed spinach

1/4 cup halved cherry tomatoes

Avocado Creme:

1 Avocado

1/4 cup sour cream or plain yogurt

juice from 1 lemon

salt and pepper


In a food processor or blender combine ingredients for avocado creme, blend and set aside.

In a small pot poach the eggs until preferred doneness (check out this video for some useful tips on doing so: Poaching an egg). Set aside in a slated spoon for a few moments to allow excess water to drain off before adding it to the plate.

Mealwhile, in a small pan, heat a small amount of butter or olive oil over medium heat. Once heated, add spinach and tomatoes, salt and pepper. Cook until spinach has wilted and tomatoes are warmed through. Set aside on a separate plate.

Once veggies are done, add ham to the warm pan and heat until lightly browned.

On a small plate, combine meal by placing ham and veggies on a piece of buttered multigrain toast, top with the poached egss, and cover in Avocado cream sauce.
