We have @amywilichowski to thank for this deliciousness. “All you do is use pesto instead of the normal cooking oil that you cook your eggs in,” she explains in the video, which has over a million likes. “You can do a fried egg, scrambled eggs, a sunny-side-up egg.”

After cooking the eggs, Wilichowski dishes them up on a slice of artisan bread slathered with ricotta cheese and avocado. She seasons the dish with honey, salt, pepper and red pepper flakes.

But you can improvise however you want. “I’ve eaten them plain, on toast, on breakfast sandwiches and in breakfast bowls that are basically a mashup of avocado, soft scrambled pesto eggs, bacon, toasted sourdough and arugula,” she told Today. “I think the best thing about them is that you can cook them in various ways — they’re so versatile.”

Tomorrow morning, take your avocado toast up a notch and try cooking your eggs with pesto. It’ll make an egg-cellent start to your day.
