Green Eggs and Ham

Becky Luigart-Stayner; Jan Gautro

Tinted green with a zesty dose of basil, this dish makes an intriguing breakfast or brunch item. Add a salad for a light dinner. If you can't find pancetta (unsmoked Italian bacon), substitute prosciutto or bacon.

Yield: 6 servings (serving size: 1 topped bread slice)
