Pesto eggs have been all the rage but I prefer pesto scramble eggs!

You will need 1 non-stick skillet and 4 ingredients.

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day and a portion of eggs will provide you with a good amount of protein and give you energy for the day.

Though to be honest, these pesto scramble eggs also make for a great lunch, post workout snack and even dinner!

Rules, we make our own rules!

Use your favorite store-bough pesto or a homemade version!

To complete my plate, I have to serve my scrambled eggs with a slice of sourdough bread and avocado.

For a bit of crunch, I love topping my eggs with toasted pine nuts!

Pine nuts are traditionally used in pesto so it’s a great pairing.

Steps

1
Done

Heat a Non-Stick Skillet

Heat the skillet on medium heat then add the extra virgin olive oil.

Crack the eggs into a small bowl and whisk.

Add the whisked eggs into the skillet with the olive oil, followed by the pesto.

Lower the heat to medium-low and start to scramble using a rubber spatula.

Lastly, turn off the heat and season with 1/4 teaspoon of salt.

Taste and add a bit more salt if needed.
