As TikTok once said, pesto eggs are delicious.

Eggs on toast. What a concept. In this recipe, we’re taking “eggs on toast” to a new level. Pesto eggs have been taking over the Internet, so today I decided to give it a try. I had a bunch of pesto leftover from my pesto pasta the night before (recipe linked below!), so I thought it was the perfect time to hop on the bandwagon. I have no regrets.

So, grab your favorite bread and pesto (homemade or store-bought!), and let’s get into it…

Cook Time: 4-10 minutes
Serves: 2 toasts


  • 2 eggs
  • 2 slices of toast
  • 2-3 tbs. of pesto (adjust to taste)
  • Pinch of red pepper flakes (optional)


  1. Spread pesto in a thin layer over a medium non-stick frying pan over medium-low heat. No need for oil! The oil in the pesto will prevent the egg from sticking.
  2. Crack eggs over the pesto and cover the pan. Let the eggs cook to your desired level. I like mine a little gooey and runny on the inside (about 3-5 minutes).
  3. Using a spatula, transfer the pesto egg onto your toast. Optionally top with red pepper flakes.
