Buon Appetito


  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tbsp. milk
  • 2 tbsp. Sacla' Classic Basil Pesto
  • 1 large clove garlic, peeled & crushed
  • 1 spring onion, finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp. roughly chopped flat-leaf parsley, optional
  • 2-3 slices thick white bread, halved
  • 4 heaped tbsp. finely grated Parmesan, optional
  • 1 tbsp. olive oil


  1. In a shallow dish wide enough for a slice of bread, lightly beat together the egg, milk, Classic Basil Pesto, garlic, spring onion, parsley, (if using) and some salt & pepper.
  2. Put both sides of the bread into the egg mixture to soak up some of the liquid – don’t leave it to soak too long or it will be too soggy. Place on a plate.
  3. Sprinkle the Parmesan cheese on a plate and dip the bread to coat on both sides.
  4. Pour the oil into a large frying pan and put it over a moderate heat. Fry the bread, in batches, for 2-3 minutes on each side, flipping them with a spatula. 
  5. The garlic Pesto toast is ready when golden brown and slightly crisp. Remove onto kitchen paper to briefly drain, then serve.
