Pesto Eggs

Pesto Eggs

I had it in my head that we were going for brunch Saturday morning. Plans changed, but my heart was really set on some good brunchy eggs.

To be honest, I was set on some Eggs Benedict, but I wasn’t prepared to try making those for the first time on a whim. I am not a patient girl first thing in the morning. I needed something I could throw together fast, something that would satisfy my eggy craving.

I started cooking before I really knew what I was making.

I had eggs, a bit of fresh pesto left from dinner, some delicious tomatoes… and then I had an idea. I could fry up some eggs and dress them up a little. It was quick and easy, but it tasted fancy. On top of the fried eggs, I drizzled a sauce made up of the pesto thinned out with yogurt (real yogurt – none of that low fat stuff), lined up some grilled halved tomatoes topped with melted cheese, and topped each of the tomatoes with a wee bit of the pesto.

It was just what I needed! (Then we went for bennies the next day – Ha!)


Happy Long Weekend, to those of you who have one this weekend. Hope it is filled with delicious brunches!
