This week’s recipe is for a crazy-awesome breakfast sandwich

Did you like reading Dr. Seuss books as a kid? All of us kids in my house growing up did. The stories are just put together in such a way that they make us smile and the rhymes, though they didn’t always make sense, were such fun to read. One of my favourites was always Green Eggs & Ham… so when I came across this recipe, I obviously had to try it out!

Trust me when I say that this recipe does not disappoint… it’s yummy, healthy satisfying and super fun to make and eat (when I first tried it, I literally “would not, could not” put it down….). Best served with a tall glass of chocolate milk.

Green Eggs and Ham Sandwich:

  • 1 hard-boiled egg
  • ½ peeled and pitted avocado
  • 2 teaspoons (10 mL) lemon juice
  • 2 slices whole-grain bread
  • 1 slice extra lean baked ham
  1. In a bowl, mash together egg with avocado until well blended to desired consistency
  2. Stir in lemon juice
  3. On one of the slices of bread, arrange slice of ham. Top with “green egg” mixture; cover with remaining slice of bread
  4. With serrated knife, slice into quarters and serve.
