This Mint-Pesto Baked Eggs is one of my favorite simple brunch recipes. The pesto is simple to make and tastes absolutely delicious. This recipe is perfect to serve 6, but very easy to double if you are planning on feeding a crowd! 

To prepare this recipe, start by making the pesto by blitzing  cilantro, mint, pistachios, chilis, lemon juice, garlic, and salt in a food processor until finely chopped. Add oil and pulse until well combined. Add cream and 2 eggs to each ramekin and top each one with 1 tablespoon of the herb mixture. Bake in the oven until the whites are set but the yolks are still runny. Serve with the remaining pesto and toasted bread.
