Green Eggs and Ham Sliders

These green egg and ham sliders are a fun entree for  Dr. Seuss themed party. Whether it's a birthday, a classroom celebration or a baby shower, these are sure to be a hit!

     The minute we decided on a Dr. Seuss themed party for Little Dude's birthday, I knew there had to be green eggs and ham on the menu. Luckily these sliders can be prepped ahead, taking some of the work off your plate on party day. They were a hit with our guests and I'm sure they will be with yours as well!

     Green Eggs and Ham has always been one of our favorite books. It is just so fun to read and of course there's the hidden message of not deciding you don't like something without even trying it.

      Sometimes looks can be deceiving and every once in a while something will surprise you. The story would have been a lot less fun had Sam I Am talked him into eating green eggs and ham on the first try, but just imagine all of the effort they could have saved themselves!

     These fun sliders can be prepped the night before the party, so all you have to do the day of is bake them off.  I just love the melty cheese and golden buttery rolls. Plus I love the small size.

     One slider is perfect for the kiddos and a few more for the adults. I always overdo it a bit on food as I never want somebody to leave my house hungry, so I made a triple batch of these little guys.

      I also made a triple batch of turkey, ham and cheese sliders. So that was two sheet pans full of sandwiches. We ended up with a batch of each left. They made a perfect snack the next day when folks stopped by to play with the birthday loot .

     The leftovers reheat well wrapped tightly in foil and placed in the oven. They don't stay as toasty, but they still are tasty reheated in the microwave for 15 seconds or so. By the end of the next day all 72 sliders were gone!

    While I don't recommend eating them with a mouse or fox, you could eat them in a house or box! Just keep them in mind next time you are looking to do something fun for breakfast. Or if you are celebrating Dr. Seuss in the classroom, for a baby shower or birthday party!

  1. I bet these were a huge hit at the party! So cool!

  2. These are way too cute! You should write a cookbook of fun treats for parties--I'd totally buy it!

  3. I've never had green eggs, but I would love one of your sliders :)

  4. I'm making these for my first grade class. I'll be taking them to school baked obviously won't be able to serve immediately. Will they be okay sitting out of oven for 1 hour??? cover with foil???

    1. I would say so. I would cover them in foil and put them in a thermal bag if you have one. If not, you could always wrap them in a towel to help keep some of the heat in. They are tasty at room temperature, just better warm. What fun!! I hope everyone likes them!
