Fried Egg Pesto Toast – Recipe!

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Fried Egg Pesto Toast is a quick and easy breakfast, lunch or dinner any day of the week.  Homemade or store-bought pesto slathered over sourdough toast and topped with a perfectly fried egg makes mealtime so delicious.

I have a great pesto recipe that you can whip together in no time, but there are several store-bought varieties that are pretty good.  My suggestions is to make a big batch of pesto and keep it in your refrigerator, so you’re ready to go any time of day or night.

Toast up some rustic bread and spread with butter, then dollop the toast with fresh pesto.  Add eggs to a skillet with butter and cook for 2 minutes, then add a splash of water to the pan and cover for 1 minute, just until the yolks are slightly white, but still jiggly for a runny consistency. Place the eggs on top of the pesto toast and season with some salt and pepper.  Slit the egg yolk gently to ooze over the sides of the bread.
