Pesto Rippled Scrambled Eggs

This is delicious, and the rippled effect not only comes from the pesto, but also ffrom the egg yolks and whites being mixed together.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place the garlic and pine nuts in a food processor and blitz until finely chopped.
  2. Add the basil and the parmesan and blitz again until well blended.
  3. Add the oil and some salt and pepper and pulse until well combined.
  4. Heat the butter in a small pan and crack the eggs, season, then leave to set for 2 minutes.
  5. With a wooden spoon, stir very gently so the eggs begin to set in clumps of white and yellow.
  6. Before the eggs have completely set, lightly stir in the pesto.
  7. Pile on to hot toast or bagels, scatter over the parmesan and serve immediately.

Great wake up flavor for a Sunday Brunch. Excellent pesto. I only made 2 eggs but made the full pesto (I'll use the leftover in another dish). I didn't scramble the eggs too much just enough to streak. Served on a whole wheat toasted bagel Thanks Lene for another recipe to save

Yummy! I used cooking spray instead of oil and smart balance spread instead of butter. I also cheated and used prepared pesto in a jar. I added some chopped sundried tomatoes and topped with freshly grated parmesan. What a treat! Thanks for a delicious and different breakfast idea.
