Green Eggs and Ham – a healthy kids lunch that’s a whole lot of fun

Green Eggs and Ham

Green eggs and ham rolls make a great sandwich alternative to pack in lunchboxes.  They are protein rich, full good fats and vegetables.  The inclusion of eggs, cheese and baby spinach make this a highly nutritious lunch option,

Make up a batch for your freezer by wrapping in a paper towel and then cling before freezing. They will last up to 8 weeks in the freezer.

Green Eggs and Ham

Ingredients

  • 6 eggs
  • 1/2 cup baby spinach
  • 1/4 tsp bicarb soda
  • 1/2 cup grated tasty cheese
  • 9 slices of ham
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/8 tsp finely ground pepper

Method

  1. Preheat oven to 175°C and line a small cookie sheet or baking tray with baking paper.
  2. Add all ingredients to a blender and blend for a couple of minutes until the mixture is smooth and no chunks of baby spinach can be seen.
  3. Pour the mixture onto the baking paper and carefully place tray in the oven.
  4. Bake for approx. 12-15 minutes or until the green eggs are set. Take the tray out of the oven and set aside to cool completely.
  5. Once the eggs are completely cool, turn the tray so that the narrow edge is is closest to you, then layer the ham over the eggs in three rows of three.
  6. Starting with the edge closest to you, carefully start rolling the green eggs and ham up, like a Swiss roll.
  7. Use a sharp knife to cut the green eggs and ham into three even parts. You can leave them as they are for a large wrap-style lunch or slice each part up into smaller slices. My picky eater prefers the smaller slices.
