I made this in 2 different ways as per recipe which the DM absolutely loved though I wasn't so keen on the texture of the bread but loved the egg so for me I mixed the pesto with the eggs (which were cooked to perfection) and served with some toasted sour dough on the side and thoroughly enjoyed. Thank you Cookgirl, made for Make My Recipe tag game.
