Green Eggs and Ham Scramble

We've all read that Dr. Seuss classic, "Green Eggs and Ham." And while most kids react with an "Eeeewwwww!!!" at the thought of green eggs and ham, it's really not a bad concept.

I love eggs for breakfast or brunch, usually scrambled. And I love veggies in my eggs. This egg scramble includes ham, cheese and broccoli, so while the eggs aren't actually green, there's a nice dose of green broccoli in it.

6 eggs
2 tbsp water
1/2 cup shredded cheese blend (I used a Kraft mix with Vermont Cheddar, Sharp Cheddar and Cream Cheese - it was delish!)
1/4 chopped ham (this wasn't just any ham, it was ham from Drier's in Three Oaks. Best ham ever!)
1 cup chopped broccoli (I had a box of frozen broccoli from Market Day and I had let it thaw in the fridge - worked perfectly with the eggs.

Beat eggs and and water. Add half of the cheese, the ham and broccoli. Pour into preheated skillet, sprayed with pam, or coated with oil or butter to prevent sticking. Cook on medium heat, breaking with a spatula and flipping as it cooks. When almost done, add the rest of the cheese, cover and turn off heat. And there you go...the best plate of green eggs and ham you'll ever have. Dr. Seuss would be proud!

Oh, and one more thing...a dash of Trader Joe's Everyday seasoning on top before serving is awesome, too!
