The Deets

Indulge in this breakfast sandwich that combines two of my absolute favorite things: the viral pesto eggs and crispy mortadella. I opted for a pistachio pesto to compliment the mortadella and cooked everything all in one skillet so it was super easy. Grab your ingredients to whip up a homemade pesto with basil, EVOO, garlic, parm, and pistachios! You can also use a store pesto, my favorite is Gotham Greens. bought In this recipe, we take the viral pesto eggs and elevate it to new heights. The fun thing about this recipe is that you can cook your eggs directly in the pesto. So crack your eggs right into the pesto and cook until fried. Meanwhile, cook the mortadella and sizzle to perfection on the same skillet. The edges will crisp up to golden perfection, which adds a satisfying crunch to every bite. Add some mozzarella for a little extra creaminess! This sandwich can really go on any type of bread, or even a bagel would be delicious! Full recipe below and happy weekend!
