After we made our Truffula Tree Pencil Craft we experimented with some no dye Green Eggs and Ham that we thought would be a great way to celebrate Dr. Seuss's Birthday.
The recipe is crazy easy! And I'll been you can't guess the secret "green" ingredient!
Lynn loves eggs and was excited about trying them, but Ohana does not. Even so, Ohana actually did enjoy eating them. Both girls said you could not taste the blueberries. I don't know, as I have a cold and can't taste very well.
Dye Free Green Eggs and Ham
- 4 large eggs
- 2 Tablespoons Water
- 6-8 Blueberries, crushed finely (you may want to run though a fine mesh strainer)
- Olive Oil for pan
- Salt and Pepper to taste.
- In a bowl whisk together cracked eggs, water, blueberry juice/mash (make sure no large blueberry pieces)
- Add oil to pan and turn on high
- Immediately add eggs to the pan
- With a wooden spatula begin moving eggs around the pan
- When they start to set up turn down to Medium and continue moving eggs around until desired doneness.
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Keep in mind eggs do continue to cook after removing from the heat, so be sure not to overcook.
- Enjoy eggs with a slice of warmed ham.
(note: as with most natural dyes you do not get the intense color you would with artificial dyes)
And don't forget to grab some Dr. Seuss Books for your child's library!
