Green Eggs & Ham

Green Eggs & Ham was my favorite story growing up and now it’s one of my son’s favorites. He gets pretty excited when we make this for breakfast together and will sometimes say a few lines as he’s smearing on the sauce! I was inspired by the green eggs and ham I’ve tried at Huckleberry in Santa Monica and at Ad Hoc in Napa Valley. In the mornings, I need to keep things simple and quick, so for me it’s all about the pesto here. Some fresh eggs and a good breakfast ham and you’re done! AND it’s fun!
