I do not like Green Eggs And Ham…I know you know the rest! But did you know that there is actually a Dr. Seuss day? I didn’t know this until I had kids and they started celebrating it at school! Incorporate these Instant pot egg bites into Dr. Seuss day and sneak some spinach into your littles…

Anytime I suggest hiding vegetables into food, I always get some push back from people who believe that we should just teach kids to eat vegetables instead. 

I mean, sure, I see your point. And I do make my kids eat vegetables, but lets be realistic. Sometimes you just gotta do what you gotta do. 

And there is no harm in making sure the kids are eating their veggies! So just have fun with these πŸ™‚

How Do You Reheat Egg Bites? 

One of the best parts of these Instant Pot egg bites is that you can cook a bunch and store it in the fridge for another morning. I like to make them on Sunday afternoon and them eat them during the week. 

Honestly, I just eat them cold and they are delicious. But if you want them warmed, you can put them in the microwave for 30 seconds, or until warm. 

How Long Do Egg Bites Last In The Fridge? 

Egg bites will last about 4 days, but your family will probably eat them all before then! Store them in an air tight container to keep them from drying out.

You’ll get used to having breakfast ready to go in the mornings and it will be a game changer!

Before making these, I was making them in the oven. And sometimes when I want crispy edges, I like to make these Clean Eating Egg Muffins with Spinach

The benefit of the silicone is that you are not using teflon, and they are much easier to clean!

How Long Do Eggs Last? 

Fresh eggs make the best meals! When possible, you will want to use your eggs within a few weeks. But sometimes we keep eggs for longer than that, especially when we buy several Costco sized boxes.

But there is an easy test to tell if your egg is still fresh. Put the egg in a bowl of water and if it sinks to the bottom, it is still fresh. If it floats, it is not fresh and you should throw it away. 

When is Dr. Seuss Day?

Dr. Seuss day is held every year on March 2nd which is also his birthday. It is only one day but somehow the school finds a way to make it last a whole week! The kids do crafts and bring home construction paper hats. 

So I think it is fun to continue it at home. These egg bites are just an easy way to add a little fun to the mornings. 

And did I mention there’s spinach in it? 

What Makes the eggs Green?

Traditional recipes use food coloring. But why use that when we have spinach? 

With all the talk about the side effects of food dye, we have been using natural food colorings and it has been working out great. This recipe is no exception!

And the best part is that I just put everything in the Vitamix and let it blend. Voila! Green eggs.

How To Make Green Eggs And Ham

Once you have the green egg mixture in the Vitamix, you can pour it into the silicone egg mold. Then cut ham and sprinkle it over the eggs. 

The ham is not necessary and I like to make them without the ham, but if you are going for green eggs and ham, you need ham πŸ™‚
