Recipe: Green Eggs (and No Ham) Sandwich

More

Adapted from ChopChop, a magazine founded to teach kids nutrition skills and fight childhood obesity.

    • 2 large eggs
    • ½ teaspoon olive or canola oil
    • whole-wheat English muffins, cut in half. Toast them, if you like crusty bread.
    • 4 flat-leaf spinach leaves, washed then dried with a clean dish towel or paper towel

Wash your hands with soap and water, then gather all your equipment and ingredients and put them on a counter. Crack one egg on the rim of a short glass and then empty it into the glass. Throw away the shell.

With the help of your adult, put a small skillet on the stove and turn the heat to medium. Let it heat up and after about two minutes, add the oil. Slowly slide the egg from the glass to one side of the skillet. Crack the second egg on the rim of the glass and empty it into the glass. Throw away the shell. When the eggs start to set and the edges are solid, use a spatula to flip the first egg. Flip the second egg, then cover the skillet and cook until the yolk is firm.

Put the two bottom halves of the English muffin on the plate. Slide the eggs onto the muffins, and top with the spinach. Cover the other half of the English muffin. Serve right away.
