will you eat them here, or there?

Happy Saint Paddy's Day to all. We had Green Eggs and Ham for dinner tonight. I started with this recipe, but I'm a bit prone to making changes. I think I doubled the bread b/c I had some nice Challah that was already stale, and so I also used some milk to be sure the bread would soften. I know I added extra spinach, just 'cause. I probably put more cheese on it too, come to think of it. Oh, and I skipped the seasoning salt and put salt, pepper and nutmeg in instead. But I stuck to just eight eggs because CD is out tonight and it only needs to feed three of us. Other than that, (!) this is the recipe I used.  And it is very green.


  • 8 eggs
  • 1 cup frozen chopped spinach (thawed)
  • 6 ozs ham (chopped)
  • 1 cup bread (cubes)
  • 1/2 tsp seasoning salt
  • 1/2 cup swiss cheese (shredded)  

So, what I really cooked was probably closer to this:

Green Eggs and Ham breakfast casserole

  • 5 slices thick challah bread, torn into bits
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 8 eggs, beaten 
  • 2 cups chopped spinach
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 8 oz ham cubes (could have gone with more, had I had more)
  • 2 cups shredded swiss cheese
It sat for about an hour before cooking to let the bread get good and sogged. Then it baked for 30 minutes and was lovely and green and filling. We ate about half of it. We'll have it for breakfast another morning.
