There's three appropriate occasions to make this recipe: 1) St. Patrick's Day; 2) Dr. Seuss' birthday; and 3) any day you feel like having fun! This recipe was submitted back in 2004. I just tried it this morning (March 2013). It was tasty and it was most definitely green. After I took these photos, I melted a little Cheddar cheese on top. I'd recommend that. This dish tastes good. But add just a little cheese and it tastes great. BTW... I only had to use 3 drops of food coloring to get the color you see in these pictures.

How To Make A Green Egg Scramble

In a paper or Styrofoam cup, stir the water and food coloring together. Set aside.

In a lightly greased frying pan barely coated with olive oil, saute the green pepper until tender.

In a medium glass or metal bowl, beat eggs well. When color is uniform, add food coloring mixture and beat vigorously.

Lower heat to medium-low. Add egg mixture to green peppers. Cook slowly, breaking and scrambling the setting egg often as they cook.

Transfer eggs to serving plate and sprinkle each portion with finely chopped green onion.

Chopped Spinach can also be used to make scrambled eggs look green. That way, you don't need to use food coloring.

I was thinking maybe pesto, I like the idea but do not want to use artificial coloring.

How about blending up fresh spinach leaves with the eggs to make them naturally green instead? Tastes exactly the same and the you cant beat the added nutritional bonus. :)
