Green Eggs and Hamwiches

If parents hard-cook the eggs and cut open the avocado, even the youngest chef can make these silly (but tasty) cookie-cutter sandwiches, inspired by Dr. Seuss. An egg slicer, prevents little hands from needing a knife.

Prep time: 5 minutes
Makes : 2 sandwiches

Do this first:

Hard-cook 2 eggs
Cut 1 ripe avocado in half and cut out or scrape out the flesh.

Ingredients and steps:
2 hard-cooked eggs
1/2 ripe avocado
2 teaspoons mayonnaise
Salt and pepper to taste
2 thin slices ham
4 slices bread, preferably whole wheat or multi-grain

Peel the eggs.
Place one egg in the egg slicer and lower the top, slicing through it. (Or, break up the eggs into small pieces with a knife or pastry blender.)
Raise the top and turn the egg on its side. Lower the top, slicing the egg into finer pieces.
Dump the sliced egg into a small mixing bowl.
Repeat Steps 2 through 4 with the other egg.
Add the avocado and mayonnaise to the bowl.
Using a fork, mash the ingredients together into a chunky paste. Taste and add salt and pepper as desired.
Spread the bread and ham slices out on the cutting board. Cut the centers out with your favorite cookie cutter.
Make the sandwiches by placing a ham cut-out on a bread cut-out, then spread on some egg salad. Top with a bread cut-out.

If the bread is soft enough and the cookie cutter sharp enough, you can assemble the sandwich first and then cut it with the cookie-cutter
