Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss! We love your books and we love the whimsical adjectives you use that make your books come to life! What I love more than just books, is making food for my kids that goes with the book! Seriously! You know that book, When You Give A Moose A Muffin, then you make muffins for your kids?!?!?! Ok, well I am SO THAT MOM!!! I thrive on that!
What better way to celebrate Dr. Seuss, than by reading Green Eggs and Ham and making GREEN EGGS AND HAM CASSEROLE?!?!?! WOW! It’s so fun, and this dish is delicious! My kids love how green it is, and I love how healthy it is for them!
This casserole is very easy to throw together and only takes a few steps. First, you just need to shred 3 zucchini, and I like using the OXO brand shred and slice pictured above. I decided to use zucchini here instead of hash browns to give it more of a green look, and BONUS, it’s healthier too!
Next, layer the ham on top. So easy, and the kids can help too!
Now, blend the eggs, milk, and spinach together. This is where you get the beautiful and nutritious GREEN eggs!
It’s time to put it in the oven, and when it’s done you can top it with cheese. Enjoy!
