Pesto Eggs With Spinach On Toast

Ready to switch up your usual fried eggs breakfast? Try out our Pesto Eggs with Spinach on Toast for a delicious and savory meal. 

Instead of cooking your eggs in olive oil, this recipe calls for pesto! Pesto is made with olive oil so it prevents the eggs from sticking to the pan and adds so much flavor. The pesto egg trend began on TikTok and we have been fans ever since. We paired the pesto eggs with spinach and toast to complete the meal. Including spinach with your eggs is a quick and easy way to boost the fiber and nutrients in your meal. 

Start Your Day With Protein

Eggs are a popular breakfast option because they are delicious, and they are a great source of protein and healthy fats. Research shows that starting your day with a protein-packed breakfast helps regulate appetite and blood sugar levels, even hours after breakfast. The protein in these Pesto eggs with spinach will help you avoid that mid-morning energy crash by balancing your blood sugar levels. 

Picking The Best Pesto

Pesto is amazing to make homemade but there are also some great prepared options out there. If you are interested in making a homemade pesto, try our Pistachio Basil Pesto. Trader Joe’s offers a Pesto alla Genovese and a fresh Kale Cashew & Basil Pesto that are both delicious. When choosing a prepared pesto, look for pesto sauces that are made with primarily olive oil. It’s also important to watch out for the sodium content, and choose lower sodium options if possible. 

Pesto Nutrition Facts 

Pesto can absolutely be part of a healthy diet because it’s made with fresh herbs, spices, olive oil, and nuts.

  • Olive oil contains primarily unsaturated “good” fats that are heart healthy.
  • Nuts in pesto, whether they are cashews, pistachios or pine nuts, are packed with fiber and healthy fats.
  • Basil and other spices included in many pesto sauces are full of antioxidants that keep your immune system strong.

Pesto eggs on toast will keep you full, satisfied, and excited for more the next morning.
