Pesto Baked Eggs

Have you heard of the TikTok pesto eggs? If you haven’t had a chance to try them yet now is the time. These Pesto Baked Eggs are a little different from the TikTok version but they are just as delicious. The pesto gives these eggs a nutty, cheesy and tangy taste that will have you making them again and again.

Ingredients for Pesto Baked Eggs

Only a few ingredients are required for this recipe and most are pantry staples… pesto will probably become a staple item for you as well after you try this recipe. You will need:

  • Eggs
  • Milk- any kind (non-dairy works as well)
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • Basil pesto (try our Homemade Vegan Cashew Pesto)
  • Shredded mozzarella cheese

How to Make Pesto Baked Eggs

To start, preheat the oven to 350 degrees and spray an 8×8 pan with non-stick spray. Then, in a medium sized mixing bowl, crack the eggs and whisk them well. Then, add the remaining ingredients and stir to combine.

Pour the egg mixture into the prepared baking dish and bake for 25-35 minutes or until set in the center. Serve immediately or let cool and store in the refrigerator for a quick breakfast during the week.

These eggs can be served on their own or I like to make them into a sandwich with extra pesto and bacon.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long do Pesto Baked Eggs last?

These eggs should be eaten within 3-5 days. Do not freeze leftovers.

Can this dish be made dairy free?

Yes, either leave out or substitute the cheese for your favorite dairy-free cheese and then try our Homemade Vegan Cashew Pesto! Regular pesto contains parmesan cheese so you will want a dairy-free or vegan version.
