We can always count on TikTok to rock our world with new viral recipes, and some of them completely changed our breakfast menu. After mini pancake cereal, baked oatmeal, and tortilla wraps, pesto eggs are the next trendy dish that you should try first thing in the morning.
Pesto eggs took TikTok and the rest of the internet by storm thanks to the registered dietician Amy Wilichowski. She found instant fame thanks to her viral recipe which received over 10 million views and one million likes to date on the popular social media platform.
As Wilichowski explains in the short clip, you can make this dish by simply replacing cooking oil with basil pesto. After pouring it in your pan and spreading it around, you should crack your eggs directly on top of the pesto and cook the eggs to your preference, with the toppings of your choosing.
The best thing about pesto eggs is that they’re incredibly versatile. Wilichowski put them on toast, but you can also use the pesto trick to prepare everything from scrambled eggs to sunny-side-up eggs. Options are pretty much endless, and here are some of the best ideas that we found on TikTok.
