Huevos Verdes con Jamón

Huevos Verdes con Jamón


As a teacher’s kid, you spend a lot of hours sitting in your parent’s classroom, waiting for meetings to finish, papers to be graded, and lesson plans to be written.


My childhood was exactly that.  I spent many hours coloring, playing solitaire, and walking circles around the tree outside.  When I tired of those activities, I searched Mom’s classroom for an activity to pass the time.  After playing with various props that Mom kept around to aid for her Spanish lessons, I read Green Eggs and Ham in Spanish.  I didn’t understand a word, but I used to pictures to recall the familiar rhyme.

In celebration of national Dr. Seuss Day, read Green Eggs and Ham…in whatever language you choose.  Optional: make the following recipe as well.


Greens, Eggs, and Ham Quiche for One


  • 2 thin deli slices of ham
  • 1 egg
  • 1 small handful of spinach
  • 1/2 tsp green salsa (more or less to taste)
  • Cracked pepper


  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit and spray two large muffin tins with nonstick spray.
  • Place one slice of ham in each muffin well and fold so that it lines the side of the pan.
  • Grind spinach in a food processor for about 5 seconds.
  • Add eggs and salsa to food processor and pulse 2-3 times.
  • Pour egg mixture into ham bowls.
  • Bake for 20 minutes.
  • Eat and enjoy!
