Do you like green eggs and ham?
I do not like them, Sam-I-Am.
Dr Seuss, Green Eggs and Ham
This week's Eating with Ellie theme is Breakfast for Dinner, chosen by Peggy. I selected Black Eyed Peas, Greens, Eggs and Ham from Weeknight Wonders as my dish. I was excited to try this dish for two reasons. First, I had never had black eyed peas before, and I was astonished to find them readily available in canned form in my local supermarket. Second, while I realise that this is greens, eggs and ham, not green eggs and ham, I couldn't stop thinking of the book by Dr Seuss.
This is a really easy one-pan dish that you can whip up easily for breakfast or dinner. I substituted the kale for spinach (because I hate kale and it is massively overpriced), but otherwise was faithful to the recipe, which I can tell you was delicious, hearty and filling. A judicious splash of tabasco sauce on top, as suggested by Ellie, really helps to make the dish.
