Green Eggs and Hamlet

The Serious Eats' Movie Awards Season Recipe Series is brought to you by


Since we like Shakespeare films, Dr. Seuss, breakfast, and puns, we decided to combine all these forces into one dish: Green Eggs and Hamlet. The original recipe (for Green Eggs and Ham) by chef Evan Funke of Rustic Canyon in Santa Monica was published in an Esquire article back in March of 2009. The green comes from the pesto and the ham is actually some delicious prosciutto. We threw in Hamlet because it won Best Picture in 1948 and this year's Oscars are coming up. Plus, doesn't Sir Laurence Olivier cradling a skull just make your stomach growl for breakfast sandwiches?
