Green Eggs & Ham


  • cups packed baby spinach, arugula, or baby kale
  • cup packed fresh parsley leaves, plus more for serving
  • cup packed fresh basil leaves
  • tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • large eggs
  • tablespoons unsalted butter
  • (1/4-inch-thick) slices deli ham, such as black forest or honey ham
  • Toast, for serving


  1. Make the green sauce: Place the spinach, parsley, basil, and Parmesan in the bowl of a food processor fitted with the blade attachment. Pulse until finely chopped, 10 to 12 (1-second) pulses. With the processor running, drizzle in the oil until the herbs are very finely chopped and the oil is green, about 1 minute.

  2. Fold the green sauce into the eggs: Place the eggs and a pinch of salt in a medium bowl and whisk to combine and break up the eggs. Fold in 1/4 cup of the spinach sauce. (The remaining sauce can be saved for future use.)

  3. Cook the eggs: Melt the butter in a medium skillet over low heat. Add the eggs and cook low and slow, stirring occasionally with a rubber spatula, until the eggs form tender, large curds of eggs, but the eggs are still quite moist, 10 to 12 minutes.

  4. Warm the ham: While the eggs cook, place the ham in a medium skillet over medium-high heat and heat until warmed through, about 5 minutes.

  5. Serve: Serve the warmed eggs on toast with the ham on the side. Top the eggs with more parsley if desired.
