From the tortilla wrap hack to baked feta pasta, TikTok has gifted us with some pretty incredible food recipes. Some are undeniably delicious, while others are a little left of field (here’s looking at you, cloud bread). The latest food trend to go viral is a pesto eggs recipe, and it’s set to be whipped up in kitchens all over the world this weekend.
The video was posted by Amy Wilichowski, who’s garnered over 1.4 million views already. She shared the stunningly simple recipe and told viewers “I swear your life will be changed”.
There’s no shortage of TikTok tutorials showing you exactly how to make them and it can basically be broken down into two simple steps. All you have to do is add the pesto to a hot pan, wait for it to bubble and then add your eggs in! Not only does the pesto ensure they don’t stick to the pan, but it also gives them an incredible flavour that you just can’t match with any other condiment.
The beauty of the recipe lies in its versatility. Whether you like your eggs fried, or whipped into an omelette, you can cook them just about any way you like. Unfortunately, the hard boiled and poached variations won’t do so well as they need to be cooked in a pan to absorb the flavour.
Once they’re cooked, you can enjoy them on top of toast or by themselves. Amy likes to add a few extra ingredients into hers, like ricotta, smashed avocado, honey and chilli flakes.
Voila, the perfect Sunday morning breakfast is ready to be served.
