Celebrate Dr. Seuss's Birthday with Eggs and Ham (Green Food Dye Optional)


By F&W Editors Posted March 02, 2016

Would you eat them on a plate?

Today we celebrate the master of whimsy, Theodor Geisel (a.k.a. Dr. Seuss). The great children’s author gave us hat-wearing cats, Christmas-hating Grinches and tree-saving Loraxes. But, for us, his greatest contribution is, of course, the culinary triumph of green eggs and ham. So break out the green food dye (or don’t) and make one of these delicious eggy, hammy recipes on Dr. Seuss’s birthday.
