Breakfast Caprese With Pesto

Breakfast Caprese With Pesto

Pesto is quintessentially Italian, delicate, and absolutely amazing with eggs.

Throw in another Italian staple like tomato and mozzarella and you have a flavor trifecta.

Our pesto omelet is made with egg whites so it’s easy on the calories, but packs in a whopping 18 grams of protein to help you start your morning right.

You can use a prepared pesto sauce if you like, but wouldn’t you rather make your own?

Pesto is a whole lot tastier when it’s homemade — the fresher the better!

It’s so easy: Just take a bit of basil, walnuts, garlic, parmesan, salt, and pepper pulse the whole lot in a food processor and that it.
