Green Eggs and Ham Anyone??



In an attempt to waste less and use more of what we have around the house, I came up with this semi-deconstructed take on the classic green eggs and ham.  As you can see from the directions, this is a tiny bit of cooking combined with an interesting presentation to achieve something that looks incredibly elegant for the amount of work it requires.


  • 1 hard boiled egg, sliced
  • 3 slices of low sodium ham (of course, you can use regular ham, this is just what he had in the fridge)
  • 1/2 scallion, sliced thin
  • 3 leaves of fresh basil
  • A few dashes of green Tabasco – in my opinion, the BEST Tabasco there is!!!



  1. Preheat a skillet on medium heat and add your ham slices.  Cook about 2 mins per side or until they are just slightly browned.
  2. To serve, place a slice of your egg on the plate and top with basil leaf and a slice of ham.  Repeat 3 times and dress the final layer with green Tabasco and scallions.  Easy Peazy and Mmmm mmmm!!
