Green Eggs & Ham

I LIKE GREEN EGGS AND HAM! IMG_1714
I DO! I LIKE THEM, SAM-I-AM!
AND I WOULD EAT THEM IN A BOAT!
AND I WOULD EAT THEM WITH A GOAT…  
AND I WILL EAT THEM IN THE RAIN.
AND IN THE DARK. AND ON A TRAIN.
AND IN A CAR. AND IN A TREE.

Dr. Seuss


Do you ever wake up in the morning craving green eggs and ham? Me neither… But when I saw this breakfast option on the menu at Countryside Kitchen in Mahopac, NY I knew I NEEDED to order it for two reasons:

  1. Where else do they actually have GREEN EGGS AND HAM on a menu?
  2. I’m [twenty] three years old.

Radioactive Green Eggs, Y’all.

So fantastically green were those eggs. I love it. And turns out our waiter, Dan, was born on the same day as Dr. Seuss! I love a good coincidence. My friend Sara got two eggs, sunny-side up with jalapeño corn beef hash. After tasting the hash, I asked Sara what exactly was in it. (Mind you, neither of us caught the corn beef part.)

Sara: I think it’s just like potatoes and jalapeños.

Me: But it tastes like there’s meat in it or something.

Sara: Oh. Is there? Wait, maybe there is. It is dark like there could be meat in it…

So naturally we asked Dan AFTER the meal and he surely thought we were geniuses after informing us that YES, it’s PRIMARILY meat. HAHA. Absurd. Good thing we’re not vegetarians. Oh, it was good too! I should probably note that.

Before our main dishes, Sara and I split the French Toast Bites because breakfast is not breakfast without toast of the French variety. I have the BIGGEST sweet tooth so this dish did not disappoint. So so so so good. Crunchy on the outside and gooey on the inside. If you don’t order these, I’m sad for you.

Countryside Kitchen opened in 2008 and has gained quite the following. Just look at their customer review page. The spot is actually famous for their “Holy Cannoli Pancake” which seemed too excessive on this morning, but I will need to try it at some point. 

This is like my favorite breakfast spot in the WORLD. – Sara

If that’s not reason enough to try it, then go home. You’re drunk.

Spread kindness and cheer, xo
