Egg Nests
Eggs with bacon, with spicy, gruyère cheese from the island of Crete and a slice of bread!
The result of this combination is delicious and will not leave anyone indifferent.
Serve them in a calm relaxed breakfast or as a side dish to a hearty dish of leeks or spinach with rice and a few olives.
I am confident that everybody will enjoy it.
