Dr. Suess party

Dr. Seuss was all about being fun and creative. Having Dr. Seuss-inspired treats is as simple as adding a little color. Another spin on cupcakes is to use gummy fish in red and blue, as seen in this Dr. Seuss party on Pizzazzerie.

Green eggs and ham recipe

One fish, two fish, red fish, blue fish. Putting a Seuss-approved meal on the table starts with this signature dish. You can eat them at night or whenever the time feels right. If you eat them with Emeril, he’ll say BAM, you’ll love to eat green eggs and ham.

Serves 4


  • 8 eggs
  • 12 drops green food coloring
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 4 slices of honey ham


  1. Crack your eggs into a bowl, add food coloring, salt and pepper and stir to combine. Pour eggs into a heated skillet and scramble.
  2. Heat another skillet and sear ham on both sides.
  3. Serve immediately.

*For a more natural green option, make a pesto from basil, spinach, kale or any deep green herb or veggie and mix that into the eggs instead.
