    Break the eggs and separate the yolks from the whites.

    Put all the yolks together, but collect each white in a separate ramekin. This is so that they can be cooked in turn.

    Finish by adding dabs of pesto (optional) and serve immediately.

Remarks:

You can use cured ham, such as Serano, instead of streaky bacon, if you prefer.

If you are short of time, break the egg directly into the hole in the bread, but do take care not to cook it too rapidly, so that the white has time to cook properly.
