To answer the enduring question -- "Do you like green eggs and ham?" -- and celebrate the 50th anniversary of Dr. Seuss's classic Green Eggs and Ham, the National Pork Board (NPB) has teamed up with celebrity chefs Michael Symon and Melissa d'Arabian to bring the story to life with tasty new recipes inspired by the book.
Among the creative recipes the Pork Board is urging consumers to try includes Ham Sandwich with Greens and Eggs – a breakfast sandwich that combines crisped Black Forest Ham with a fried egg, melted cheese, pesto and greens, and Ham and Green Egg Mini Tartlets, which feature bread instead of pie crust that can be made ahead for an on-the-go meal.
The book is part of the Iowa-based NPB’s effort to encourage consumers to consider ham more often as a versatile option for breakfast, lunch or dinner, since it pairs well with many flavors. “From bone-in to boneless, from fully-cooked to fresh, whipping up deliciously good, healthful meals with ham is a snap,” according to NPB.
