How to Make Green Eggs and Ham !


  1. Put 12 eggs in a pan of cold water.

    Bring the water to a full boil, then set your timer for 5 minutes. When time is up. Let sit to cool a bit.
  2. Peel the egg shells off of the eggs.

    Cut eggs in half, remove the yolks from the whites and put them in a bowl, set the whites on a plate.
  3. Using the tines of a fork, crumble the egg yolks.
  4. Mix in the onion and celery.
  5. Add the mustard and ranch dressing sparingly until it reaches the right consistancy. Add salt and pepper. Stirring together well.
  6. Add the blue food coloring and if necessary add some green food coloring to reach your desired color, stirring well.
  7. Add pickle relish, stirring well. Set this aside until ready to fill the egg white halves.
  8. Finely mince or grind up the ham.

    Add all the remaining ham ingredients together stirring well to desired consistancey as you did with the egg yolks.
  9. Fill or over fill your egg whites with both of the fillings. You can spoon the filling or pipe it into the egg white halves.
  10. If you have a deviled egg platter, place the eggs in desired arrangement.
