I don't want to spoil the party

I had the coolest second grade teacher. After we finished each book, we'd have a party. After we finished "Justin Morgan had a horse" she brought us to the stable to ride her horse, Arabian Eric. And one day she came in and announced to the class it was Green Eggs and Ham day. I don't remember what the occasion was. We were far past Green Eggs and Ham in our reading comprehension. All I do know, is I will never forget eating Green Eggs and Ham with one of my favorite teachers and her instilling in all of us the love of reading.

Honestly, I don't think I've had Eggs and Ham since that day. I mean I've had them separately, but not combined. And this morning when we woke up early so Thatboy could bring his car to the shop I thought it would make a fun breakfast. Since I'm no longer seven, I didn't have to make it green this time - although I did add some green onions...that kinda counts right? I'll check with Sam I Am.

Ham and Eggs
  • 7 oz ham, sliced
  • 1 Tbsp butter
  • 3 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 cup corn
  • 1 green onion, sliced
  1. In a skillet over high heat, brown ham in butter until browned on both sides.
  2. Combine eggs, corn, and green onion and pour over ham.
  3. Lower heat and cook, scrambling eggs, until done to your liking.


  1. This is really random, but I hate eggs in general except boiled.

  2. Yum! If I had some ham around here, I'd be making those now...I do have bacon!

  3. What a cool teacher!

    I like the addition of corn.

  4. That sounds like a really cool teacher. I wish I'd had a teacher with a horse when I was growing up.

  5. mmm, i like ham with just about anything.

  6. YUM! I've been craving eggs for afew days now!

  7. Oh how I love (green) egss & ham!

  8. i love scrambled eggs with ham. and cheese. and onions. and... well, you get the idea ;)
