Trivia: Green Eggs and Ham

The book

  • Defictionalization: "green, egg and ham" was a real dish, but the "green referred to a vegetable side dish rather than the color of the meal as a whole, hence the joke. While the real dish has fallen out of favor, actual dishes of green eggs and green ham, however, have cropped up as references to the book:
    • The Friendly Toast, a breakfast joint in Portsmouth, NH (with a second location in Cambridge, MA) is one of the more famous of the Greasy Spoon-type places that actually make their own version, though the ham isn't usually dyed green.
    • In 2012, as part of promotion for The Lorax movie, International House Of Pancakes offers Green Eggs and Ham, mixing spinach with scrambled eggs.
