"Pesto eggs were one of the biggest hits on social media in 2021 so we thought we’d bring them even further and serve them in a bagel! If you don’t have bagels, you can use English muffins or regular old sandwich bread, plus you can feel free to stuff the sandwich as you like with bacon, smoked salmon, or sausage."
