DAKOS - CRETAN KOUKOUVAGIA

Koukouvagia is a recipe from the island of Crete, and literally means "owls eyes".



I guess when you have two on a plate, they look somewhat like an owl is staring back at you......? It is very similar to an Italian bruschetta, with lots of cheese and oozing with olive oil. Great way to get use out of hard, dry, crusty bread.
