Baconia Salutes Dr. Seuss


Today’s the day you silly goose

That we Baconians celebrate Dr. Seuss!

Green eggs and ham would be a good start…..

Here’s what you’d need in your grocery cart!


First of all we are hooking up to a bunch of blogs that are celebrating Dr. Seuss Day!    Who knows what kind of fun they’re having – just like we’re having fun in honor of “THE MAN” we all love too.   Dr. Seuss – this blog today is in your honor.   If you click the badge below you’ll be able to see links to everyone pawticipating in the HOP today!

Happy Dr. Seuss Day everyone………………..we’re celebrating today with one of the traditional foodables from the Dr. Seuss books………….. We are using BACON (of course) instead of actual ham but then it all comes from the same place right?

Green Eggs and Ham – a la Seuss!!



  •  4 large eggs
  •  4 slices of bacon cooked until NOT YET CRISPY – needs to be “bendable” 
  •  about 3 tsp of pesto per egg



  1.  Preheat oven to 400F.  Grease muffin tins.  Put bacon in each tin forming ring around inside of cup.   Crack egg in – put in all of the yolk and about 1/2 the white for runny yolks or all of the white if you don’t care for runny yolks.
  2.  Put 1 tsp pesto on each egg
  3. Bake 7-8 minutes until white is set and yolks are runny OR longer if you prefer non-runny yolks.
  4.  Add a bit more pesto when you serve!

There are of course all kinds of ways you can change this recipe around and still be honoring Dr. Seuss with some green eggs and ham – some people use spinach in the recipe – pesto is another way to add the green………it’s up to you – remember my “Baconian Chef Philosophy” – recipes are GUIDELINES – you can “wing it” and come out with something even better if you want!

I thought you might like to see what I’m wearing to the Cat Scouts Dr. Seuss party later today – What?  You didn’t know I was a Cat Scout in addition to being King of Baconia?   Oh yes I am.   My brother Angel Sammy was a Scout and I’m following in his pawtracks.   Maybe you’d like to join up?   If you’re a cat, we’d love to have you.   Just go to CATSCOUTS.COM and register!

The Cat In The Hat (or Chefs Hat??!!)

Have a happy Dr. Seuss Day……………and try some green eggs and ham won’t you?

Your King……..!!

  1. Happy Dr.Seuss day! Your green eggs and “ham” look tasty. I cannot stand spinach so it would be pesto for me.


    • Thank you Miss Cecilia! I like this one – in fact I have a “real” hat like that Miss Ellen made and I am refusing (shake my head like a helicopter!) whenever Mom puts it on my head! I’m NOT a hat guy!!!!

      Hugs, Teddy


  2. Sorry, but all of the items to make green eggs and ham are currently out of stock due to our latest snowstorm. Thing 1 and Thing 2 will have to deliver them on their twin snowmobiles…


    • Howdy! Thanks for stopping by to visit! As the King of the Kingdom of Baconia (where all the real bacon lovers live!), I like to take over the kitchen in my castle on Saturdays. The rest of the week the Castle Chef can do his THING but Saturday is ALLLLLLLL MINE! Of course today I had to Seuss things up a bit in honor of the good doctor. Nice that you dropped by – feel free to visit any time!

      Hugs, Teddy


    • Thank you EVER so much for hosting this FABULOUS blog hop to celebrate our FAVORITE DOCTOR!!! Glad you like the recipe….it’s yummy indeed – just what we need – and heaven knows we all need a good feed! Lookie – I’m a poet! Enjoy the rest of your day gang…….

      Seussical Hugs, Teddy


  3. Somehow my mom missed all the Dr Seuss stuff…she remembers her nieces and nephews reading those books. She said HER mom didn’t really care for it (thought it was all just too silly)…??
    Love, Sundae


  4. Mmmmmmmmm. Those look good, says the Human. I dunno know though–the bacon is great and the eggs are probably okay, but I wonder about the green stuff. The only green stuffs I like are the Nip and grass. Maybe I could have my eggs with some nice grass? As you know, the Human has been very remiss after I had her well in paw for a while, so I hope we are back on a visiting schedule.


  5. Thanks for the recipe and for participating in the blog hop. We like runny eggs here and we will have green eggs again for St. Paddy’s day.


I wanna know what YOU've got to say!!
