Green Eggs and Ham Breakfast Pizza
- Ready In:
- 2 (8 ounce) packages crescent rolls
- 1 1⁄2 cups egg whites (I used the container of egg whites from the store)
- 3 teaspoons milk
- 1 cup shredded cheese
- 1⁄2 cup diced ham
- green food coloring
- Unroll crescent rolls onto a lightly greased cookie sheet (or use Reynolds non stick foil). Be sure to press the seams together well, and to roll up the edges about 1/2 an inch to form the crust.
- Mix the eggs in a bowl with the milk and 3-4 drops of green food coloring.
- Mix the ham in another bowl with 2-3 drops of food coloring.
- Carefully pour the egg mixture onto the crescent roll dough.
- Sprinkle on the ham evenly on top.
- Then cover with cheese.
- Bake at 350 for about 15 minutes, or until the crust is brown, and the cheese melts.
- Be sure to seal the dough well, I did not the first time, and the egg seeped under the crescent crust. It still tasted great though :).

This is a five star recipe for what it is - Green Eggs and Ham - most likely to be consumed by children. My fifth graders made this for Read Across America Day for Dr. Seuss and the limited ingredients and simple preparations made it a hit in our classroom. Even the adults who were initially turned off by the green hue but decided to try it really liked it. That said, I'm pretty sure if you put anything on crescent rolls it would be a winner. ;) Thank you so much, Loves2Teach, for a fun, memorable classroom experience!
This is such an easy and yummy breakfast! I skipped the food coloring and followed another reviewer's suggestion and used an 11x7 pan with just one package of crescent rolls. I also used just four eggs, and added sliced jalapeno to half the pan. It also took quite a bit longer to cook - at least thirty minutes. This is a definite repeater for those mornings I don't feel like putting much effort into breakfast - thanks!
Yummy-ola! We enjoyed these very much, but I did make a couple of teeny alterations. First, I used one pkg of crescent rolls & made it in a 11x7 pan (so no leftovers) for my breakfast crew of four--worked great! Next I used 8 farm-fresh whole eggs and three pieces of thick-sliced deli ham, AND I skipped the green food-coloring since my kids are older and don't need the whole immersion experience to enjoy their meal!! Last but not least, I used some Cheddar and some Monterey Jack. Next time I would use only SIX eggs, as it took quite a bit longer to bake with the eight (altho' when it was done, it had puffed up beautifully)--like 30-35 minutes. I am always looking for great breakfast recipes, and this one definitely fits the bill! KEEEEEPER!!!
