You'll eat my green eggs and cheese anywhere you wish.
Okay, clearly I'm no Dr. Seuss, but this recipe could nevertheless become a crowd pleaser in your home this St. Patrick's Day.
Most kids can handle eating eggs, and here's a festive, fun way to add a huge handful of vitamins with spinach! And who will be able to resist the delicious, melted mozzarella cheese here?
Your kids will eat these eggs in a chair; they will eat them at the table. Your kids will eat green eggs and cheese anywhere they are able!
(Yes, I know, I know. I should stick to cooking!)
- 3 whole eggs
- 1 cup packed spinach
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- Sprinkling of pepper
- Olive oil for pan
- 1/2 cup grated mozzarella cheese
Total Prep Time: 5 minutes
Total Cooking Time: 5 minutes
Crack the eggs into a blender and add the spinach, salt, and a sprinkling of pepper. Blend until you have a totally smooth green egg mixture — this should take about 30 seconds to 1 minute.
Heat a medium-sized, non-stick skillet over medium heat with enough olive oil to coat the bottom. Pour in the green egg mixture and let it cook until almost solid, about 1 minute. Sprinkle almost all of the cheese evenly over the top and continue to cook until it's completely solid, about 1 more minute. Carefully use a small spoon or spreading knife to roll up the egg into a burrito of sorts. Sprinkle the remaining cheese on top and remove it from the pan. Slice in half — or for a slightly dramatic presentation – slice into several 1-inch rounds.
