Pesto Egg Avocado Toast

This pesto avocado toast recipe from TikToker @amywilichowski is the perfect place to start on your pesto egg journey. By adding a pesto egg on top, it elevates your typical avocado toast to a fancy restaurant level. Of course, you could just add the pesto egg and it would be delicious, but Amy also adds ricotta, honey, salt, pepper, and red pepper flakes for extra flavor.

Pesto Eggs On Roti

Switch it up, and put your pesto on eggs on some roti (aka Indian flatbread). This genius idea comes from TikToker @darnitdamon, who also sprinkles on some cheese. This is a great idea for a midday snack to get you over that afternoon slump.

Pesto Eggs On Toast

Another simple way to enjoy your pesto egg is on some toast. This is perfect if you really just want to savor the pesto eggs by themselves. TikToker @cookingwithayeh does add some salt and pepper for seasoning, but you can cook however you like your eggs.

Cheesy Pesto Eggs

There's nothing cheesy about your love of pesto eggs — unless you're thinking about making some cheesy pesto eggs. This recipe from TikToker @simplelifepleasures involves heating up some bread with mozzarella on top in the oven before you start to making your pesto eggs. When your eggs are ready, add them on top of your bread for a delicious and cheesy snack.

Rolled Up Pesto Egg Sandwich

Most TikTokers have been making their pesto eggs sunny side up, but you can enjoy your eggs however you like. Scramble them, fry them over easy, or roll them up with cheese like TikToker @thekoreanvegan. In a pan, @thekoreanvegan fries up some eggs with cheese in pesto sauce and slowly rolls them up like a burrito as they cook. With a rolled up cheesy pesto egg ready to go, add to some bread with tomatoes and arugula for the most beautiful sandwich you've ever seen.

Vegan Pesto Eggs

If you're vegan, you can still enjoy some pesto eggs with this recipe from TikToker @healthygirlkitchen. Just fry up some tofu, which will act as your eggs. Sprinkle on some turmeric at the center if you want that sunny side up look. Voila, you have some vegan pesto eggs that look just like the OG.

Pesto Eggs On A Waffle

You'll love this flavor combo a waffle lot. Instead of some toast, TikToker @courto3 uses a waffle, because "waffle's gonna change the game." With your pesto egg on a waffle, it gives you that perfect sweet and savory combo — the best of both worlds. Serve this up at your next roomie brunch with some mimosas and fresh fruit.

Pesto Egg Burger

Adding a fried egg to a burger is always a great choice, but a pesto egg is even better. This tutorial from TikToker @thisisplanetfood shows you just how to assemble a pesto egg burger with red pesto, bacon, and halloumi cheese. If you're wanting to make your backyard BBQ this summer a standout, you might want to add this burger to the menu.

Air Fried Pesto Egg Bell Peppers

You've had stuffed bell peppers before, but have you ever had air-fried pesto egg bell peppers? This idea from TikToker @eatpayylove is genius. It not takes the pesto egg to a whole new level, but gives you an excuse to use the air fryer that TikTok made you buy.
