Here’s our take on green eggs and ham—and we think Dr. Seuss would approve! This dish is all about creating a rich flavor base by sautéing crisp pancetta, leeks, and onion. The eggs bake with aromatic herbs and spices like cumin, turmeric, cilantro, parsley, and for even more green, a scoop of protein powder helps keep you full ‘til lunch.
Greens, Eggs and Ham
Yield: 6 to 8 servings
Active Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 25 minutes
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Add 1 tablespoon oil to an oven-proof, 10-inch skillet. Sauté pancetta until crisp, about 3 to 5 minutes. Remove with a slotted spoon and lay on a paper towel; don’t wipe out the pan. Add onion and leek, sauté until translucent, about 7 to 9 minutes; scrape into a small bowl.
In a blender, add eggs, superfood powder, salt, baking powder, pepper, cumin, and turmeric; blend until smooth. Add remaining oil to pan and generously coat all sides to prevent sticking. Pour eggs into pan, then return pancetta and onion mixture, sprinkling all over the eggs.
Cook for 2 minutes, until the eggs at the edges of the pan begin to set. Slide into the oven and bake until eggs are set and slightly wiggly in the center, about 8 to 10 minutes. Let cool slightly, then slide or flip onto a platter. Serve with blistered tomatoes and grilled bread, if desired.
