Author's Notes

The pesto can be stored in the fridge for a week, and the amount of the pesto in this recipe is enough to make up to about 8 servings of pesto eggs. You can substitute the sourdough with any kind of bread that you like.

Step 1
In the food processor, add Fresh Basil Leaves (2 cups) , Pine Nuts (1/4 cup) , Parmesan Cheese (1/2 cup) , and Garlic (2 cloves) . Pulse several times until well chopped.
Step 2
Slowly add Extra-Virgin Olive Oil (1/2 cup) while the food processor blade is still running at its lowest power.
Step 3
Season with Salt (1/4 tsp) , Freshly Ground Black Pepper (1/8 tsp) , 1 tsp of Lemon (1) , and Honey (1/2 tsp) . Pulse a couple of times just to make sure that all the seasonings are well blended. Transfer to a clean container.
Step 4
Heat a non-stick pan over medium-low. Once hot, add about 1-2 tbsp of pesto, spread it out, then crack the Egg (1) in and carefully break the white a little bit. Cover with a lid. Let the egg slowly cook with the pesto for 2-3 minutes or until the desired doneness.
