dr. seuss dayOne dish, two dish…It’s Dr. Seuss Day! Every year, on March 2nd, we celebrate National Read Across America Day. It's also the day that we celebrate the birth of Dr. Seuss! Today, libraries and schools nationwide will participate in celebrating one of the most notable children’s authors, and a favorite of ours. We got to our kitchens and whipped up some surprising dishes that are Dr. Seuss Day inspired, but with a healthy twist. Now, everyone can get in on the fun of celebrating this incredible author.

Green Eggs and Ham Asparagus, Crispy Ham and Poached Egg on Toast


dr. seuss day

Ingredients:


4 slices cured ham
4 slices sourdough or seed bread
2 large eggs
6 asparagus spears, trimmed
2 tbsp. pesto, optional

Directions:


Heat a non-stick frying pan and dry-fry the ham until crisp, then set aside. Toast the bread and keep warm.

Heat a sauté pan of water until it just begins to bubble. Crack the eggs into ramekins and pour them very gently into the water, then quickly cover the pan and carefully remove from the heat. Leave for about 3 minutes.

Meanwhile, steam the asparagus spears for a couple of minutes, then pat dry. Check the eggs – the whites should be completely set. Lift them out of the water and drain. Butter the toast and divide between two plates. Pile the asparagus, egg and ham on top, and season well. Drizzle or dollop pesto over eggs, if you like.
