Once you have made your bespoke pesto, take a couple of table spoons of it and put it on a frying pan on a low to medium heat until it starts to heat up.  Crack an egg into it and let it fry and infuse to your desired consistency.  Don’t let the pesto burn. 

Serve it all with bread, or pasta or tortilla wraps, for example.
