Leftovers, Pesto Eggs

Pesto eggs

A Spin on the Classic Scramble 

I never thought I’d say this, but I eat a lot of eggs. Including the yolk! This coming from a girl who would only eat egg whites, most of the time from a carton “Just the Whites!” {ew} and even that was rare. Now, my household goes through just about a flat of eggs each week, mind you there are only two of us (not including the gorgeous Harpie ), and I tend to use eggs for more than just breakfast, but still. That’s a lot of eggs. 

Good ol’ eggs can be boring. Am I right? Unless you’re making crazy, intricate omelets every morning, which of course you are. There are only so many egg options– sunny side up, fried, scrambled… borrrrinnngggg. But, by adding a little pesto to the mixture, now that’s excitement! No, just me? Hmm, you must have not tried this then. Because boy oh boy, its a thrill!

Pesto Eggs

Seriously though. I’m a big multi-tasker in the morning. Usually I’ve got bacon cooking, coffee brewin’, shower running, and someone on line 1 as I juggle it all. Breakfast being my favorite meal of the day, I’d love to go all out and make a beautiful soufflé. But Monday-Friday, unfortunately we are all time restricted. Adding a quick dollop or two of pesto to your eggies is a perfect addition to lively up your typical-boring eggs.

Simply Enjoy!
