  • 1-2 tablespoon basil pesto
  • 2 eggs
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Chili flakes (optional)


  • Add 1 -2 tablespoons of pesto on a fry pan on medium heat. You won’t need to add any oil or butter as there’s enough oil in the pesto.
  • Crack in the eggs and cook eggs to your liking, whether that’s scrambled, fried or sunny side up.
  • Season with salt and pepper and some chili flakes (optional)
  • Serve with toasted bread and enjoy!
