we had a little problem, didn't interrupt the taste, but our eggs kept slipping off the top!
Being that I absolutely love pesto, eggplant and poached eggs, I knew that I would love this recipe. It is to die for! The real key is to "carefully" place eggs on top. They kept wanting to slide off. I was thinking this would also be good with scrambled eggs. Thanks Sharon for sharing this wonderful recipe that I will definitely make again.
