TikTok's Pesto Eggs
The life-changing Pesto Eggs are the new food trend that originated on TiKTok in April 2021. Amy Wilichowski, who is a dietician, shared the simple recipe. The pesto is used instead of oil, and infuses its deliciously fragrant and nutty flavour in the eggs.
2 tbsp pesto (store bought or homemade)
salt & pepper
Heat a non-stick frying pan over medium heat. Add a couple of tablespoons of pesto and let the oil heat up.
Crack the eggs into the pesto.
Cook until the egg white is fully set.
Serve with a sprinkle of salt, pepper and chili flakes.
Serve on toasted sourdough on a thin layer of ricotta, cream cheese or butter. Try making this recipe with scrambled eggs instead of fried sunny side up for change!
Can I use store-bought pesto?
works but if you have the time, homemade pesto is insanely delicious!
Is homemade pesto healthier than store-bought?
While it is rather high in calories and fat because of the olive oil and pine nuts, pesto is packed with nutrients that many other sauces lack. Ingredients include olive oil, pine nuts, fresh basil, garlic and Parmesan cheese. Store bought versions tend to use canola oil, with much higher level of salt and preservatives.
