Green Eggs and Ham
by Collette White | June 22, 2016
Good Morning friends! I hope this finds you all well. We are great here in Tasmania. It’s beautiful and it’s COLD but more on that soon I promise! I am stopping by really quickly today to share with you this crazy simple lunch box filler ‘Green Eggs and Ham’ … My kids LOVE it … they love eggs, they love ham and they love Dr Seuss, so really, why wouldn’t they! I hope you and your family enjoy it too!
1 handful baby spinach (approx. 20g)
good pinch salt and pepper
100g sliced ham
oil for pan
In a blender place the eggs, spinach, salt and pepper and blitz on high until the spinach is completely chopped.
Place a little oil in a frypan until hot (I use a 20cm frypan)
Place approximately ¼ of the egg mixture into the hot frypan – working quickly, swirl the egg around to completely cover the base, making a thin layer. When the egg looks like its cooked and the edges start to curl up, remove the egg from the frypan (using a spatula or if you are naughty like me I generally just use my fingers!) and pop onto a large chopping board. SEE NOTES BELOW!
Place a few slices of the ham on one end of the egg crepe and roll it up.
Slice up and enjoy! Simple as that!
NOTES: * You want the egg layer to be thin and crepe like, if you put too much egg in the frypan, once you swirl it around you can quickly poor the egg back into the original mixture to use for another egg crepe. If you do it nice and thin then you don’t have the flip the egg over and cook both sides.
* Be sure to buy additive free or nitrate free Ham if this is an issue for you.
* You can replace the ham with cooked and cooled bacon, chicken, sliced roast lamb or any other cold meat.
Wishing you a truly wonderful week ahead! I look forward to connecting with you more again soon.
