What more can I say ... it's delicious (might not sound it, but it is) ... try it! Serve on toast if you want.

This was amazing. The pesto goes so well with the eggs. Instead of chedder I used parmesan. I added chopped tomatoes also. I can't wait to make again. This was the best scrambled eggs I have ever had. Read More

This recipe has the right idea, however cheddar cheese doens't go with pesto whatsoever. I used Feta cheese and found it to be much more appealing. Feta, scrambled eggs and pesto... couldn't be better... Cheddar? Never. Read More

I wasn't sure about the amount of cheese in the recipe, it sounded like a lot, but it was great! Instead of the oil, I used an olive oil cooking spray. Read More

This was good, but all the oil and cheese made an oil slick. Plus, the pesto has a lot of oil. I cut out most of the frying oil and I used home made pesto. A bit of a mess, but worth it. Read More

One of my favorite restaurants serves a breakfast dish similar to this called green eggs and ham. It includes the scrambled eggs, pesto, diced ham and topped with feta cheese. Wonderful combination of flavors. Read More

Loved the pesto and eggs together! To sneak some veggies in for my son, I cooked some onion, chopped zucchini and diced tomato in oil first. Then added the eggs, cooked until done, added pesto, and then topped with shredded parmesan cheese. He loved it and hardly noticed that he ate zucchini. Awesome! Read More

This was fabulous using the recipe as written. I was apprehensive because it didn't look that pretty at first but then after adding the cheddar cheese, it all came together. Cannot wait to make this again. I did use butter instead of vegetable oil. Read More

I was pleased at how quick and easy this vegetarian dinner idea was to make. I replaced the cheddar with feta and added capers and Italian seasoning. Then I served it in folded flatbread naan topped with lettuce, avocado slices and parmesan cheese. Flavorful and hearty! Read More
