Ham and eggs
Ham and eggs are a popular combination of foods often served as a breakfast meal in some English-speaking countries; the similar bacon and eggs are more popular in others. The dish was immortalized in Dr. Seuss’s popular Green Eggs and Ham story.
Ohio University Lancaster campus held its 38th Ham and Eggs concert in May 2009.
‘Ham ‘n’ Eggs’ was beaten two to one according to a 1939 New York Times Story reporting on a “huge off-year vote” noting that “California has declined ‘ham and eggs’, a billion dollar pension plan.”
When Henry Puyi became Kang Teh, Emperor of the Manchurian Empire, he was noted in a 1934 Associated Press story for his taste for ham and eggs, and other Western style dishes.
Another use of the phrase “ham and eggs” is used as a derogatory term describing a person(s). Also could be called a “ham n’ egger” or “egger”. This phrase was brought to light in the original “Rocky” movie, filmed in 1979. Rocky downplays his chances as a title contender, referring to himself as “just some ham n’ egger from South Philly”.
