Pesto egg and ham breakfast sandwich recipe

When I was little, I loved the book Green Eggs and Ham by Dr. Seuss. One day, our kindergarten teacher made green eggs and ham using food coloring, they were so delicious. I asked my mom to make green eggs and ham for me everyday! This is my ode to my childhood obsession in a more grown up way, no food coloring.
