All this week (March 2013), I've been testing and photographing "green egg" dishes that have been submitted to the site as I prepare for St. Patrick's Day. This recipe was submitted by "linda30" way back in 2002. While it wasn't the greenest egg dish I tried recently, it was one of the best tasting. There's something about an avocado in scrambled eggs that makes it feel like an extension of the eggs. It adds a richness and a very mild flavor. I made a couple changes which are detailed below the original recipe submission. (Indidentally, the greenest egg dish award goes to a recipe called Green Egg Scramble.)

How To Make Green Eggs And Ham

Melt the 2 Tablespoons of butter in a frying pan over medium-high heat.

In a large bowl, beat the eggs with the milk. Add all remaining ingredients and mix well.

Pour into hot frying pan. (You may wish to do this in multiple batches depending on the size of your pan. For smaller pans, only use 1 Tablespoon butter per batch of scrambled eggs).

Stir the eggs as they cook (about every 10 seconds) until they are completely set.

In this recipe, it's avocado and green onion that give the eggs a greenish hue. Fun for St. Patrick's Day or after reading the famous book to kids (please leave out the bourbon if serving to children).

I combined this recipe with the green egg scramble and added green pesto and a few mushrooms we had on hand. Came out FANTASTIC, a nice green hue with no food coloring used. Would definitely use the same combo again.

We had this in elementary school for Dr. Suess' birthday. It tastes pretty normal and good.
