Will you eat them on St Pat’s? Will you eat them wearing hats?
I do so like them, Sam-I-Am, I do like green eggs with no ham!

The pesto takes this breakfast classic – Eggs in a Basket* – to a whole new level for Meatless Monday . It can turn your St Patrick’s Day breakfast into Top ‘O The Mornin’ . And the basket shape of the bread makes this a perfect Easter basket breakfast or brunch!
I loved the spinach pesto created by Andrea Meyers of Andrea’s Recipes . She steamed the spinach before blending it – Genius, Andrea! This makes the pesto smoother and darker green. I used mostly spinach with just a few basil leaves to make this sauce more budget friendly. And I love a little lemon zest to brighten the taste! I blended the pesto in my blender for a smoother sauce, but you can use your food processor for a more traditional rustic texture. And, many times we advocate for a cheaper oil, but use the good stuff here because the fruity taste of extra virgin olive oil really comes through!
