  • 3 tablespoons full-fat sour cream
  • Fresh micro greens, for garnish


  1. Slice the eggs in half lengthwise and scoop the yolks into a mixing bowl. Mash the yolks with a fork.
  2. To the mixing bowl with the yolks, add the mayonnaise, pesto, and sour cream. Mix until the ingredients are well combined.
  3. Transfer the yolk mixture to a pastry bag or resealable plastic bag. If using a resealable plastic bag, snip off a corner of the bag. Pipe the mixture into the egg whites.
