Green Eggs and Ham

Read Across America Day is a nationwide reading celebration that takes place annually on March 2—Dr. Seuss’s birthday. Drawing inspiration from the beloved classic, Green Eggs and Ham, this recipe foregoes the green food coloring in favor of healthy greens from the garden. Collards, kale, chard or spinach add the green to this dish. Like Sam I am, if they give it a try, the students will cry, “I do like green eggs and ham.”
