Green Food Coloring
To prepare your ham, submerge it in a pot of water and mix food coloring. The ham will soak up the color over the course of 30-45 minutes.
To prepare your eggs, crack your eggs and separate the yolks from the egg whites in two separate containers. In a ramekin or small bowl, pour water and mix in green food coloring. Add your yolk into the food coloring mixture and let soak for 10-15 minutes. Remove carefully with a sieve, blotting away any excess liquid.
Heat a pot with oil across the bottom on medium heat. Pour a small amount of eggwhites on top to make the base of the egg, then add your green egg yolk on top. It will help to have one hand on the pot handle at all times so you can control where the egg whites and egg yolk move when adding them.
Once the bottom of the egg white is browned, remove the egg from the pan and continue cooking more if desired.
When your ham is colored, drain the water and dry excess liquid. Place in an oven at 350 degrees for 10-15 minutes just to warm it up, remove, then serve with your eggs!
