Green Eggs Minus Ham

“I do not like green eggs and ham. I do not like them Sam I Am”. Who doesn’t like the book Green Eggs and Ham by Dr. Seuss? I always wondered about those green eggs though. Why were they green? Were they rotten? Why would Sam I Am want to feed rotten eggs to someone? Were they special? I always had a curious mind.

Twenty some odd years later and I am still trying to solve the mystery. I decided to make my own green eggs and call it a day. So here you are my green eggs minus the ham. I used a combination of avocado and mayo, inspired by my guacamole chicken salad {which is delicious and you should totally try}.



Green Eggs Minus Ham


1/2 small avocado

1 tbsp mayo

2 hard boiled eggs, chopped

salt and pepper to taste

cucumber {Optional}

tomato {Optional}

low carb bread {Optional}


1. Hard boil your eggs. You’ll want to fill our pot with enough water to cover your eggs completely. Salt your water generously and bring to a boil. Add in your eggs once your water is a rolling boil. Cook for 1 minute. Turn off and cover. Cook for another 10 minutes.

2. Let your eggs cool either by sitting or by running them under cold water until they have cooled down enough to handle. Using an egg slicer {or a knife} slice your eggs to your desired chunkiness. Place in a bowl. Cut your avocado in half and add seedless half to the bowl without the skin. Mash. Add your mayo and mix thoroughly. Add salt and pepper and mix thoroughly to distribute. Serve over low carb bread with cucumber and tomato or eat with melba toast.

Happy Cooking!
