This 4 ingredient scrambled green eggs with ham recipe is great for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. My kids love eggs and ham so I sneak in some spinach puree which they can’t segregate from the food so they end up eating it. Even my little picky eater asks for “green eggs with ham”! The meal is very easy and quick to make. We also pair it with tortillas.
How I Hide Nutrients
My kids will eat the dish with the spinach pureed. I tried just cutting up the spinach and they end up not liking it and taking it out of the eggs. It just “looks” odd to eat the “green leaves”. With the puree, they don’t have many options but eat it. Also, there is no additional strong flavor from the spinach so even my husband doesn’t complain about the eggs are “green”.

I use a food processor to make the spinach puree for the eggs with ham and spinach tacos recipe. I love the pan I scramble the eggs in. It is not only a stainless steel pan so your food is not contaminated with chemicals, but also non-stick so your food doesn’t stick! I have stainless steel pans that aren’t non-stick and I use them for different purposes. In this case, I am using the stainless steel pan that isn’t non-stick for wilting the spinach. If you don’t have a colander, you can use a big sieve (also known as a strainer).
