Green [& Deviled] Eggs 'n' Ham

"Just want Sam-I-Am to know I DO like Green Eggs 'n' Ham, & one of the easiest ways to enjoy 'em is by making a recipe like this! Obviously this recipe is for a group [or someone who REALLY, REALLY likes green eggs]! [I use ONLY Del Monte brand Sweet Pickle Relish, 'cause many of the other brands have a large amount of hig fructose corn syrup.] The 23-minute cooking time for the hard-cooked eggs is not included in preparation time."

    These were great! I used yellow mustard and left out the food coloring. Very delicious.

    Made these delicious deviled eggs to go with our Christmas Eve snacks. Everyone loved them; especially my grandchildren. They loved the color and the combo of ham, honey mustard and the relish. They were a hit and I will definitely make them again! Made for Everyday is a Holiday tag, December, 2011.

    These are great! I made 40 of these for today, St Patricks Day 2011. Brought them to work. They were a hit. I will be making these again!

    What a clever idea! On top of that, it's delicious. I halved the recipe. I did use the paprika, but I think if I were making this for kids or for something like St. Patrick's Day I'd leave it out--it kind of spoils the "green" idea. I also agree with the previous reviewer who said that if these were chopped up they'd make a great sandwich spread. Thanks for posting!
