Use eggs from happy hens who have been allowed to dine on bugs and worms. This natural diet increases their anti-inflammatory fat content (Omega 3's). Remove the pan from the heat just before the eggs are completely set and they'll be perfect by the time you serve them. This recipe is from my talented colleague Becky Boutch. These eggs can be rolled up in a chapatti or tortilla for a different presentation.
Great tips! Cynthia, I would love to know more about how to maintain a cast-iron skillet. I'm afraid mine is going downhill. Thanks for all you do!

I love eggs for breakfast, we usually have that kind of King's Breakfast on sundays (with scrambled eggs, homemade smoothie, olive oil and tomato toast...) and I think I will try this recipe next sunday!

I am not an egg person but those eggs were delicious. It's always fun going over to the house and putting mic's on all of you. Especially knowing I will be fed. ( smile ) Now can we do something about the Car Dealership next door? sheeesh.

Yum! I'm currently loving omelettes with baby arugula (I only put that in at the very end so it doesn't cook too much), Jack cheese, and the Sunny Paris seasoning from Penzey's. You've converted me to greens for breakfast. =)

I love this site because it's the way I cook daily. Thanks a lot. I just finished eating all but one bunch of the Swiss chard from our garden and am looking forward to the green eggs which I know my husband and co workers will enjoy. Thank you again for having such delightful website.

Steve cut you off in the video before you could share what kind of salty cheese you used. I'm curious. What was it? You always inspire me and I'm looking forward to my green eggs/no ham this morning!

Peter and I are now daily Braised Kale addicts thank to Cynthia Spring Greens Cooking class at Two Dog Yoga this past week. Thank you Cynthia and Annie (hostess at Two Dog Yoga, in Lake City, Seattle) for the wonderful class to benefit North Helpline Food Bank! It was a wonderful evening of good food, learning from a true food whisperer, and sharing it all with some lovely neighbors and fans! Thank you!!

This brings me back to my childhood. My Mom would make this same dish that you call green eggs with very early new dandelions. They are very sweet at that stage and delicious. The only difference is she would saute the greens first in olive oil and garlic. I absolutely love your show. You people are like an extended family for me.

P.S. My next choice in greens would be Escarole. They are wonderful in salad and soup and now I'm going to try them in your green egg recipe. Thank you, you beautiful people for all the chuckles you give me. Rose

Thank you for the promotion of the ladies' beautiful eggs! You can find these eggs from Township 18 Farm at the West Olympia Farmers' Market (wolyfarmersmarket.org) every Saturday 9am-2pm, May-October. Ask for pastured eggs at your local farmers' markets, or better yet, keep a few chickens right in your own back yard! :)

We live on the Kitsap Penninsula of WA and had an Eagle ravage our chicken coop this year. Now we have to rely elsewhere for pastured eggs - sigh! Love this recipe
