Pesto Baked Eggs

“I wish there was an option to patent recipes ” says my husband when he tasted this dish. He said, “why don’t they serve such dishes in restaurants, wow its soo good.” These were the comments from my egg lover husband.

I wasn’t originally a great fan of eggs but he loves and needs his eggs every day and thus I developed a habit into eating eggs for breakfast. Now eating something everyday warrants a variety of breakfasts as opposed to a single style omelet. Over Easy, avocado toast, poached, benedicts, tostada, sunny side up, Frittata, chipotle egg salad, boiled eggs, avocado egg salad, egg muffins etc are some of the ways we consume eggs for breakfast apart from omelets.

He was working from home today so I decided I make him something nice, he was also working long hours these days.So I came up with this baked eggs recipe and it turned out absolutely delicious plus they are low in calories yet very filling.
