Where the Recipe Originated

Registered dietician Amy Wilichowski was the first to share this recipe on TikTok. The video now boasts over 10.7 million views along with 1.4 million likes. In addition, the specific hashtag #pestoeggs has well over 112 million views, proving that people are going nuts for this interesting egg dish.

How to Make Pesto Eggs

The ingredient list for this recipe could not be any easier. All that you need is 1 tablespoon of pesto, two eggs, 1/2 of an avocado, two slices of toast, and 1 teaspoon of honey.


The general rule is that you should substitute pesto for the cooking oil that you would normally use to make eggs. The recipe is far more than just topping your normally prepared eggs with pesto sauce.

This recipe is also incredibly versatile. You can mix the pesto with scrambled eggs, fried eggs, and more. Wilichowski recommends adding the eggs to the top of toast along with avocado and honey.

You can also add a dollop of ricotta cheese for some extra creaminess. Or add some red pepper flakes or a dash of hot sauce if you want a little more heat.


Praise Abounds

There is no shortage of praise for this simple recipe. Some users are particularly happy that the recipe involves very little cleanup. The pesto eggs make a great meal at any time of the day, stretching it far beyond a breakfast choice.
