Green Eggs and Ham

Years ago, before discovering food-writing, I was a kindergarten teacher. Though my days of nap time and recess are now over, I can’t help but wish I’d thought of this when I was still teaching, because I would have totally made these with my students…

Still, I guess I could always throw a Dr. Seuss-themed grown-up party and serve these with jello shots…


  • 6 eggs $1.50
  • 3 tbsp mayonnaise Pantry
  • 1/8 cup frozen green peas, thawed $1.50 for 10 oz.
  • 1 tsp dried dill $1.50 for 1 oz.
  • salt and pepper to taste Pantry
  • 2 pieces deli ham, cut into 1" strips $2


  1. Hard boil the eggs. Rinse them under cool water until they are cool to the touch and carefully peel them. Slice them in half and carefully pop out the yolks.
  2. Combine the yolks, mayonnaise, green peas, dill, salt and pepper in a food processor (or mash very well with a fork) until completely incorporated.
  3. Use a rubber spatula to scrape the yolk mixture into a pastry bag or plastic baggie. Attach a plain circular tip, if using a pastry bag. If using a baggie, simply snip a 1/4 inch circle by cutting the corner of the bag off. Pipe the yolk mixture into the hollow egg white halves. Alternatively, skip the piping and just carefully spoon the mixture into the egg halves.
  4. Top each egg half with a piece of ham.

Makes 12 deviled egg halves.

Gabi, I love this “green eggs and ham”. I can’t wait to try them. It’s whimsical, sounds yummy and brings back memories of experimenting with food as a child. This is a lovely site you have. Wishing you well, betsy hall

How fun! I discovered a way to slice the eggs in half so that they sit evenly, and they have equal whites to space ratio…. Slice them diagonally! What an epiphany that was to me! I’m going to have to make these sometime… yum…

Exactly the same error. Incredibly frustrating. Reinstalled windows again… and again. Re-installed all redist’. .net, graphic drivers, ran chkdisk, reinstalled dx… No joy. Seemingly, it would appear this has only come around since the latest hotfix was released. Either that or coincidence, could be either!
