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.

  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.
