Pesto-Fried Egg Toast

Let's face it - love it or hate it, all of the new food trends these days are stemming from Tik Tok. They might not all be winners, but these pesto fried eggs? Game changer.

It makes total sense - the olive oil in the pesto fries up the eggs, the Parmesan melts to create crispy, lacey edges, and the basil and garlic just make everything taste amazing. 

While this would be delicious on its own, or on a plain piece of toast, we took it to the next level with a toasted slice of ciabatta and a spicy Calabrian goat cheese spread. So easy to throw together, and you might be keeping pesto on hand for all future eggs!

Ingredients

  • 2 slices of ciabatta (toasted)
  • 4 oz goat cheese
  • ½ teaspoon Calabrian Chili Paste, (or your favorite hot sauce)
  • ¼ teaspoon salt, (plus another ¼ teaspoon for the eggs)
  • 3 tablespoons pesto,
  • 2 large eggs

Instructions

  1. In a small bowl, mix together the goat cheese, Calabrian chili paste, and ¼ teaspoon salt until smooth and creamy. Divide the mixture by spreading it over 2 pieces of toasted ciabatta.
  2. Heat up a medium-sized nonstick pan over medium heat. Once the pan is hot, after about 2 minutes, add the pesto. Carefully break the eggs into the pan straight into the pesto, and sprinkle with the extra salt over the eggs. Cook over medium heat until the whites are set and browned around the edges and yolk is still runny, about 3 to 4 minutes. If the whites need help setting, spoon some of the hot oil over the top of the eggs.
  3. Top each toast with the crispy egg, along with any caramelized pesto left in the pan. Serve hot.
