Green Eggs and Ham

This is my daughters FAVOURITE book, it gets read several times a day and taken everywhere. I’ve even found her sleeping with it a few times!

So I made this little dish for her very worn, over read book.

Ingredients

  • A dozen eggs

  • 2 tsps American mustard

  • 1/3 cup whole egg mayonnaise

  • Paprika

  • Salt & pepper

  • Green food colouring

  • 600g sliced ham (we use honey leg ham)

  • 1 packet cocktail forks

  • optional flat leaf parsley for decoration

Method

  1. Hard boil the eggs.
  2. Cut the eggs in half, length wise using a sharp knife. Remove the yokes and put them in a bowl to make the filling.
  3. Place your halved egg whites on a serving tray with a bowl in the middle for the ham rolls.
  4. I used parsley on the base of the tray to help keep the eggs in place and for garnish.
  5. Mash up the yokes with a folk then add mustard, mayonnaise, paprika, salt and pepper.
  6. Once it’s all combined start adding your green food colouring a little at a time, mixing as you go until you get your desired shade of green. *You can use the Natural Extras green but it doesn’t quite give the nice green for Green Eggs and Ham so I used the standard food colouring in the end.
  7. Pipe the filling into the eggs using a piping bag (or place your filling in a large zip-lock bag and snip one corner).
  8. When that’s finished cover the tray with cling wrap and place them in the fridge to set the filling.
  9. To make your ham rolls you take a slice of ham and roll it into itself, secure it in the middle by putting a cocktail folk through it on a 45 degree angle.
  10. I trimmed the ends of the ham to give them a neat look (and kept the cut off for sandwiches).
  11. Place your ham in the bowl with the cocktail folks pointing upwards.

Your green eggs and ham is ready to serve!
