Green Deviled Eggs and Ham

I am a super fan of Dr. Seuss Day! If you haven’t noticed I include a Green Eggs and Ham recipe in all of my cookbooks (Which are on SALE now!) This recipe is a twist on deviled eggs!

Before my job as a nutritionist, I worked at a camp where we taught a class on the Lorax by Dr. Seuss. It was actually a puppet show to teach kids on the importance of taking care of Mother Nature. I have some amazing memories of working at the camp and my children now get to experience camp once a month with their home school program (we live about 2 miles away from camp).

Anyway, if you would like to celebrate Dr. Seuss’ birthday with us, you must try these Green Deviled Eggs and Ham!

  • 12 large eggs
  • 4 slices sugar free bacon diced into ¼ inch pieces
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise store-bought or homemade
  • 1 teaspoon vinegar
  • 1/2 small avocado pureed (or guacamole)
  • 1/2 teaspoon Redmond Real salt
  • chopped fresh chives for garnish
  • 24 slices thinly shaved ham


  • Place eggs in a large saucepan and cover with cold water. Bring the water to a boil, then immediately cover the pan and remove it from the heat. Allow the eggs to cook in hot water for 11 minutes.
  • Meanwhile place the diced bacon in a skillet and saute until crisp, about 5 minutes. Remove bacon from pan, Set aside.
  • To make the deviled eggs, After 11 minutes, drain the hot water and rinse with very cold water for about a minute or two to stop the cooking process. Peel the boiled eggs and cut them in half lengthwise. Remove the yolks and place them in a bowl (or a food processor). Mash or blend the egg yolks with a fork until they are the texture of very fine crumbles. Add the mayonnaise, vinegar, avocado, and salt. Fill the egg white halves with the yolk mixture. Sprinkle with diced bacon and diced chives.
  • Place a slice of rolled up ham in between each deviled egg.
  • Keep leftover deviled eggs in an airtight container in the fridge for 3 days.
  • BUSY FAMILY TIP: I keep a dozen hard-boiled eggs in my fridge at all times. My boys who are four and six love to help me in the kitchen and peeling eggs is one of the things they can do without my constant attention so I can prepare other food.
