Green Eggs…and blueberries?


Happy Birthday, Dr. Seuss!!! You are 108 today!

Big Brother woke up with a fever this morning (again) and he was so bummed he missed his Pajama Party with green eggs and ham. I tried to console him by assuring him that we would make our own Green Eggs and Ham!

The only problem was…we didn’t have any ham. So we had green eggs…and blueberries instead. :)  Deviled eggs sounded really good to me today, so I selfishly chose to make the eggs this way instead of the usual scrambled.

Here’s what you’ll need:  4 hard boiled eggs, 2 Tablespoons mayonnaise, 1 squirt of yellow mustard, a splash of Worcestershire sauce, and green food coloring.

1. Boil your eggs and let them cool.



2. Peel the shells off the eggs.


3. Cut each egg in half…



…and scoop out the yolks.



4. Use a fork to smoosh the yolks. No, smoosh isn’t really a word, but I couldn’t think of a better one at the moment!



5. Add 2 tablespoons of mayonnaise, a squirt of mustard, and a tiny splash of Worcestershire sauce. Mix.



6. Add your green food coloring…



and mix well.



7. Put the yolk mixture into a plastic zip-top bag and cut a tiny hole in the corner of the bottom of the bag.



8. Squeeze the egg mixture into the egg whites.



All ready! We ended up sprinkling some Paprika before eating them.


What’s your favorite way to eat green eggs and ham???


  1. My 2 year old won’t eat hard-boiled eggs, so I doubt he would eat deviled eggs. My boys had green scrambled eggs and bacon. We mixed our books and also had the banana/strawberry Cat Hat that’s been floating around the blogosphere, and I used a cookie cutter to cut our toast into a foot shape for the Foot Book. It was a fun breakfast!

  2. Love the idea of green deviled eggs! Noble and I whipped some up this morning and they where super tasty!

  3. This morning before school I made my 6 year old son scrambled green eggs and ham.While he ate I read Green Eggs And Ham to him. He loved it! His school also served green eggs and ham and gave the kids pajama day at school today.All of the kids were really happy to wear pajamas to celebrate Dr. Seuss’s Birthday.

  4. Isn’t this a great life lesson? It’s not all picture perfect. We don’t always have the exact ingredients for life. I love that you pressed on and shared about it. Seems like this would be a fun title to make a parallel story:)

  5. In lieu of artificial food coloring, one could use puréed parsley or spinach, which could also be used in scrambled eggs :) (parsley is what they use at Universal Studios/Island of adventure/Suess-land in orlando for their green eggs and hamwich)
