How did the Pesto Eggs recipe go viral?

Tips to make your Pesto Eggs

Like everyone else, to test this recipe, I first started by watching some videos. A priori no difficulty: we brown the pesto in a pan, add one or two eggs, and place everything on a slice of bread. The result is surprisingly good and very simple. However, I have a few tips for you to perfect this recipe!

  1. Be generous with the amount of pesto! Count a good tablespoon of pesto per egg because otherwise you will hardly feel the taste of pesto.
  2. Break your eggs delicately. Be careful when breaking your eggs over the pan, they can break easily (this is what happened to me with one of the two eggs). The reason? I had just taken them out of the refrigerator. So that this does not happen to you too, take your eggs out a few minutes before using them to avoid thermal shock.
  3. Watch out for splashing! The pesto brown in a pan may splash. In order not to get it everywhere, you can cover the pesto and eggs with a lid while cooking.
  4. Pay attention to the amount of salt. If you use industrial pesto, they usually contain a lot of salt. As a concequence, it is not necessary to salt the eggs or the avocados.
  5. Make your homemade pesto. If you have time, I advise you to make your homemade pesto. It’s so much healthier and more satisfying than ready-made pesto. And why test my recipe for Tarragon Pesto!
