I just made these eggs and they were amazingly very good.  I didn't have creme fraiche so I subbed with sour cream.  I have made pesto eggs before but never put in sour cream before and I like that addition.  I also used the frozen pesto sauce cubes.  Even my husband liked them.  At first he looked at his dish and said "so we're having green eggs and ham". No, green eggs and bacon!  Thank you for sharing this.


Hi Debbie, thanks for trying my recipe! Yes, both creme fraiche and soured cream work great!


My kids are DEVOURING these eggs as we speak. "These are awesome!!!" "Can we have these every day for breakfast?!" are two of the things the kids have shouted between bites. Thanks for a great recipe!!


Lisa that's fantastic! It's sometimes hard to please the little ones and I'm so happy they liked them! Smile


Huh, I make scrambled eggs all the time, but I've never thought of adding pesto before! (nutmeg, apple and cinnamon, or parsley have been my go-to seasonings). I'll have to give it a try though, it looks delicious. Thanks! I'm really happy to hear about your new book btw. Will it have recipes from your apps? As an android user I've not been able to have a look at them yet and I feel like I'm really missing out. Smile


Thank you Jenny! I haven't tried nutmeg and cinnamon - do you then use salt or a sweetener? Sounds interesting, I'll have to give it a try Smile The book will contain a total of 150 recipes. 30 of these recipes are already in my apps - in my opinion I chose top 30 out of 238 currently found in the apps. The remaining 120 recipes in the book are new and not found anywhere else.


Sounds great. I'll definitely have to get a copy. As for my scrambled eggs, I just add a little salt or nothing at all - I never use sweeteners, since I find they keep my sugar cravings going.


Thank you Jenny! I totally agree on the sweeteners, they are sometimes better avoided. Although Erythritol is only 70% as sweet as sugar, I usually use less in my recipes. T think my palate has changed since going low-carb Smile
