      Thoroughly enjoyed this egg nest (I made one and served some crispy bacon on the side) I used wholegrain/wholemeal bread, baby portabella mushroom, dried tarragon and swiss cheese and a sprinkle of smoked paprika and it all came together beautifully, thank you WI Cheesehead and WI Gal for the recommendation, made for I Recommend tag game.

      Perfect in every respect! Absolutely love the tarragon and the bread had a toasted taste. DH and I had this for lunch. Another asset to this recipe is that it is so easy to adjust the size to fit an empty nester household's needs. Thanks Wi Cheesehead for sharing a wonderful vegetarian entree. Made for Vegetarian/Vegan Recipe Swap the Peppers team.
