Keto Recipe: Green Eggs & Ham with Cat in the Hat Parfaits

"Today you are you, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is youer than you!" - Dr. Seuss

I love that man! Love those books! He and Shel Silverstein totally rocked my childhood!  

This Friday , March 2nd, we celebrate that incredibly insightful, crazy-creative rhyming guy with an outstanding keto breakfast for my little Loraxes. 🧒 🧒 Hope you enjoy!

Green Eggs & Ham

  • 2 cups packed baby spinach
  • 3 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
  • 3 Tbsp cup olive oil
  • 6 large eggs
  • Pinch of sea salt
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted Kerrygold butter (or ghee)
  • 6 slices uncured deli ham (I use Applegate Farms)
  1. Place the spinach and Parmesan in the bowl of a food processor or your high-speed blender (I use my Vitamix). Pulse, or blend slowly, until finely chopped. With the processor/blender running, drizzle in the oil until the mixture becomes a liquid green, about 1 minute.
  2. Break the eggs and a pinch of salt in a medium bowl and whisk to scramble the eggs. Fold in the spinach sauce.
  3. Melt the butter in a medium skillet over medium-low heat. Add the eggs and cook, stirring occasionally with a rubber spatula, until the eggs are cooked, but still shiny.
  4. While the eggs cook, place the ham in a medium skillet over medium-high heat and heat until warmed through, about 5 minutes.
  5. Grab 4 serving plates and place two slices of ham on each plate. Top each equally with the green eggs. Serve with a side of Cat in the Hat Parfaits (recipe below!)

Make ahead: The spinach sauce will keep covered in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.

Cat in the Hat Parfait

  • 1/2 pound fresh or frozen strawberries 
  • 2 Tbsp powdered erythritol (I use So Nourished)
  • 1X 5.4 oz can of coconut cream (I use Native Forest) 🥥
  1. Place the strawberries in a medium saucepan over medium heat. As they release their juices, use a wooden spoon to slightly mash the berries.
  2. Sprinkle in the powdered erythritol and stir well to combine. Reduce the heat to medium-low and continue to stir and mash the strawberries for another 4-5 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.
  3. Take 4 small 1.5 oz shot glasses (you know you have a million of these souvenirs laying around). Fill each with 1 Tbsp of coconut cream, followed by 1 Tbsp of strawberry sauce, 1 Tbsp of coconut cream, 1 Tbsp of strawberry sauce, then 1 tsp of coconut cream as a thin layer on top. Cat in a Hat's Hat!
  4. Enjoy!

Make ahead: These parfaits can be made up to 2 days in advance. Cover the top of each with plastic wrap to keep them fresh.
