Popeye and Dr. Seuss teamed up for this month’s recipe!  We are all about spinach this month and love to have fun in the kitchen, that’s why we pair each recipe with a children’s book – this Dr. Seuss story is definitely a favorite!

 

Ingredients:

  • Organic Nonstick Cooking Spray
  • 2 Square One Organic Spinach Cups (1 Twin Pack – thawed and drained)
  • 2 Square One Organic Broccoli Cups (1 Twin Pack – thawed)
  • 2 Tablespoons All-Purpose Organic Flour
  • 2 Large Organic Eggs
  • 4 Large Organic Egg Whites
  • 3/4 Cup Shredded Organic Cheddar Cheese
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Baking Powder
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Salt

Preheat oven to 400 degrees and coat cupcake pan with organic cooking spray.

In a large bowl, whisk the eggs, egg whites, Square One Spinach(drained) and Broccoli Purees, flour, ½ cup Shredded Organic Cheese, salt and baking powder until combined.

Pour mixture into the cupcake pan filling cups half way. Sprinkle the remaining ¼ cup Shredded Organic Cheese on the tops of each of the cupcakes. Bake until the tops are puffed up and the eggs are not runny in the center when pierced with the tip of a knife, 13-15 minutes.

Yields 6 green egg cupcakes – serve immediately and freeze the rest. You now have breakfast for the rest of the week!

READ – Green Eggs and Ham 

Here’s a fun fact:  Dr. Seuss wrote Green Eggs and Ham as a result of a bet!

Random House is a publishing company who distributed one of Seuss’ biggest success, The Cat in the Hat, which had only 225 different words! Co-founder of Random House, Bennett Cerf, was amazed by Seuss’ ambition and proposed a challenge for a different book.

Cerf bet Seuss that he couldn’t write a book using 50 or fewer different words. 3 years later, Dr. Seuss released Green Eggs and Ham, which is one of his most popular books. Upholding the bet he made with Cerf, Dr. Seuss used only 50 words for Green Eggs and Ham.
