A truly fresh, fast and flavorful breakfast that will certainly put a “spring” in your step.

Serves 2

Pesto Eggs

 1 Jar Colavita Pesto
 4 eggs
 4 thick cup pieces of crusty bread (baguette)
 Colavita Extra Virgin Olive Oil
 Crushed Red Pepper

First prepare the crostini. Cut thick slices (1-2” thick) from a baguette. Place them on a baking sheet and drizzle them with Colavita olive oil. Place them under your oven’s broiler and broil until golden brown (about 2 minutes). Remove from the oven and set aside.


Heat up a medium pan over medium-low heat. Add the jar of Colavita pesto and warm it in the pan for 1-2 minutes.


Crack the eggs into the pesto and cook them until the whites are set and the yolks are still runny.


Using a spatula, remove the eggs, along with some of the surrounding pesto one at a time from the pan, placing one each on a crostini.


Sprinkle with hot pepper and serve.
