green eggs and ham

Usual breakfast fares getting boring? Both young and young-at-hearts will enjoy this whimsical take on the breakfast classic. Inspired by the Dr. Seuss book of the same name, this recipe calls for the addition of avocado that gives our favorite ham and eggs a creamier taste and added health benefits. Sam-I-am would definitely love this for breakfast (or any time of the day)!
