6Fill up the nests with hot cancoillote and pour a little over the potatoes. Serve immediately.Eggs Comtoise : etape 25


If you don't have any cancoillote, use any other cheese you like (but preferably a soft cheese) and melt it in a little cream.
You may be surprised to see that the egg yolk is not heated beforehand, but it will heat through when in contact with the hot potato and cheese.
