So, without further ado, here is my very own Green Eggs recipe!
What you will need:
Gather all of your ingredients.
Decide how many eggs you want. (I usually do three for myself, but it really just depends on how hungry you are.) REMEMBER THE NUMBER OF EGGS!!!
Crack the eggs into the bowl. If you have trouble cracking the eggs, use the non-cutting side of a butter knife, and give it a light but firm tap along where you want it to crack (do this over the bowl :) ). If you get shells in your eggs, you can just fish them out with a fork.
Use a fork and poke holes in every yolk (yellow part), then stir until the yolk and egg whites are combined.
Now, the number of eggs you put in, put in that many drops of green food dye. One drop for every egg.
Stir the egg mixture again until it has combined. It will probably not look like a pleasant green right now, but that's okay.
Grease the frying pan with whatever non-stick thing you chose.
Turn on burner (We'll say medium heat, but it's different on every stove. You should turn your burner to whatever setting you normally use to make scrambled eggs.), and place the pan above it.
Dump eggs into frying pan, and then stir with spatula, or wooden spoon, or whatever. Whatever you do, DO NOT use a fork (especially a metal one) to stir the eggs, because you will scratch the pan, which can ruin it. Don't ruin your frying pan.
Continue to stir eggs pretty often, so that they scramble, and don't burn. When they are done (there shouldn't be any runny bits. There should also never be a Seussical afternoon that ends in food poisoning), put them on a plate with some ham.
I probably over extended the instructions by a lot, it really isn't hard to scramble eggs with green food dye, but for those that don't normally cook, I wanted them to be able to make the eggs also. Now, I've never made green ham, so the next bit of advice on that is totally theoretical, however, it seems like a good idea to me to add green food dye to the apple juice that you are cooking your ham in (or whatever you happen to use to cook ham. We've always used apple juice.), and that way it can sort of suck up the colour while it cooks, but that's really just a theory, and probably wouldn't work.
Also, to demonstrate just how green my eggs actually were, I was eating beside the book Crewel by Gennifer Albin, and it struck me that the cover was the exact colour of my eggs. Here's a picture of the book:
I have always adored this book, and I would declare myself an official Seuss fan. I don't think that the book really needs my review to say that you should read it (although I guess I already did at the top), because the generations of people that adore Seuss, the fact that children of today still adore them, that movies are still being based on them, musicals of these books are being performed, and entire reading movements are done in Dr. Seuss's name, I feel, should be enough to represent itself. Have you ever tried to write in rhyme? It's hard. It's not easy to write in rhyme, use repetition and verse, make up a world and draw all of the characters, but that's what Dr. Seuss did, for every single book. He was a talented man. Three cheers for Dr. Seuss!
Hip Hip Hooray!
Hip Hip Hooray!
Hip Hip Hooray!
What's your Seuss story? Have you ever eaten green eggs and ham? Will you eat them, Sam-I-Am (I realize that Sam-I-Am was the guy trying to get the other grump to eat green eggs and ham, but I'm making it work, okay?)? I hope you try them if you haven't already, and comment below about how it worked out.
