You know us, we bloody love an internet cooking trend – whether that’s something as subtle as Lockdown 1.0’s fuck-it-everyone-else-is-doing-it banana bread or something as genius as TikTok’s tomato and feta pasta (which just FYI is worth the hype and you can find more details here).
So when we heard about pesto eggs (which, as the name suggests, includes pesto and eggs) are interest was absolutely piqued.
The recipe has gone viral on TikTok and includes frying an egg in a pan with butter (or whatever your cooking oil of choice is) and adding in a spoon of pesto. Once your pesto-egg is cooked to your liking, it is best served on a slice of bread with ricotta, smashed avocado, honey, salt, pepper and chilli flakes. Sounds like an absolute breakfast-in-bed dream come true.
The recipe is the brainchild of TikTok user Amy Wilichowski, and her video, which offers a step-by-step description of how to cook it, has already had over 9 million views.
Others have taken the #PestoEggs recipe and made it their own, combining them with everything from bacon, cheese and tomatoes.
Looks like we know what our weekend plans involve…
