    You’ve heard of the TikTok sensation, pesto egg in the hole, but here’s a variation of it. What if you want the yolk cooked? Or you just don’t like buying different bread and having to make it thick enough so it doesn’t become soggy. Or having to cut out a circle in the bread every time? Then this is for you!

    I recently experimented with this for father’s day and it was a hit! I tried it a couple more times so I can perfect the recipe for you guys! All you need are:

    • 2 eggs
    • 2-4 tbsps of pesto
    • bread(optional)

    Here are the steps:

    Get The Egg Batter Ready To Go

    The egg batter is just your usual one, here’s what I put into it.

    • 2 eggs cracked
    • 2 tbsps milk
    • oregano
    • red chilli pepper flakes
    • salt & pepper

    And then I whisk these all together.

    Heat the pan + Pesto

    When the pan is heated on medium-low, add the pesto. Give it a mix so it settles, and the oil starts releasing.

    Pour the egg

    Then either melt butter or pour a tbsp of cooking oil into the pan, after medium heat. Then when it’s hot after a few minutes, add the egg batter.

    Whisk it

    Then using a fork, I gently whisk the egg and pesto together. I don’t want them becoming completely blended just slightly mixed. This way your pesto egg cooks better.

    Cook & Cover

    Now, wait a bit as the egg cooks(you don’t want to eat anything raw). If you want to cover the pan with a lid go ahead, just ensure your egg cooks better.


    If you want to serve your egg over toasted bread, be my guest. It’s more filling and is healthy(especially if you use whole wheat grain). If want something else to add, you can always follow my recipe for Avocado Toast!


    This is a short post, but I hope you enjoy this pesto egg recipe. I love making pesto eggs for breakfast, and it’s super yummy. Eating healthy doesn’t have to be bland. You can always add meat, like cooked ham, sausages, bacon strips, etc. If you don’t like meat, then cooked potatoes are also a great option.

    This is extremely filling, and a great way to get protein in the mornings. Thank you for reading!

    Let me know if you’ve ever tried this, and your opinion on this pesto egg recipe.

    till next time, take care 🙂
