Every time I go home for breaks, I always make myself (and my family) some variation of an omelette. What seems to be one of the most popular and delicious is the vegetable omelette with pesto. The basil from the pesto sauce matches perfectly with the eggs and veggies, and it's just enough seasoning that you don't need to add any salt or pepper.

There are many ways to incorporate pesto into eggs, such as drizzling it on top of the omelette or mixing it into the egg, but for this particular recipe, I've simply added the pesto into the filling. This recipe is meatless, but you can definitely add sausage or bacon for a more filling and protein-packed meal. As for a side, greens or potatoes make for a great combo.
