How do I make pesto eggs?

Luckily for all you budding chefs, Amy has shared her recipe.

And it sounds pretty simple.

All you have to do is substitute the usual oil you’d fry your eggs in with a couple of spoonfuls of pesto.

Just cooked this for breakfast. Added two bits of bacon. Game changer.

Amy explained that the oil in the pesto not only keeps the eggs from sticking to the pan but also infuses them with all that delicious basil and parmesan goodness.

To serve, she suggests slathering a piece of sourdough toast with ricotta cheese, smashing half an avocado on top before adding the fried pesto eggs.

She also adds salt, pepper and chilli flakes and drizzles with honey.
