Roasted Tomato and Basil Pesto Benedict

We admit it - this Roasted Tomato & Basil Pesto Benedict is likely to ruin things for any other breakfast that comes after. One bite will prove that this is pesto’s true calling – a tempting treat deserving of its place upon an egg, laid on top of fresh cherry tomatoes, resting upon a bed of shaved Parmesan and a slice of our superb Potato Rosemary Loaf. Sprinkled with basil and served warm it’s a sure bet this little miracle is going to be making an encore appearance. It’s just as tasty for lunch, dinner, or snack time. Indulge.
