Pesto eggs becomes the latest trend to take over TikTok

Pesto eggs is the latest food trend to go viral on TikTok and Instagram after more than 1.4million people watched registered dietitian Amy Wilichowski share how baking eggs in pesto instead of olive oil is the secret to a delicious breakfast twist. 

Waitrose have revealed they’ve seen a 108 per cent increase of sales in pesto this week in the UK as more than 120 million people have watched videos and tried out on the latest trend on TikTok while more than 2,100 users have shared snaps of the delicious dinner to Instagram. 

‘The oil in the pesto will keep the eggs from sticking to the pan,’ Amy says in the clip, ‘The taste is incredible—you won’t go back.’ 

Amazon Fresh have seen surge a demand in the ingredients they’ve revealed their own recipe and curated basket of all the ingredients needed to create the snack. 

The recipe uses pesto instead of olive oil to cook the egg, meaning it absorbs more flavour, with creative foodies frying, poaching, and scrambling eggs in the nutty, cheesy dip. 

Once cooked, the eggy creation is usually served with toast, and garnishes to taste, with some food fans using honey, cream cheese and yoghurt to serve. 

Zoe Simons, senior innovation chef for Waitrose told FEMAIL: ‘Pesto eggs are a genius invention- you essentially use pesto instead of oil, which means you get loads of flavour into the eggs, as the herby, cheesy pesto cooks in the pan. 

‘Simply scoop a couple of tablespoons of your favourite pesto into a pan and heat until warm. 

‘Crack two eggs into the pan and cook for around 3-5 minutes.  

‘I like to serve my pesto eggs on sourdough toast, with tomatoes and bacon, plus an extra drizzle of pesto over the final dish.’
