green eggs & ham

Any time the secret ingredient is eggs, ham, or something green, it goes without saying that either the Iron Chef or the challenger will make a dish that is a play on green eggs and ham. Well tonight it was my boyfriend's turn, and the secret ingredient was the ham steaks we get from our CSA that we never really know what to do with. (Or, given how much of it we ate between the eggs and the side salad, maybe the secret ingredient was arugula?) Whimsy aside, this was a fantastic breakfast-for-dinner, and definitely makes up for the failure that was our egg-in-potato from last week. This meal was completely and utterly satisfying, but not at all heavy - in other words, it was perfect.
