Brief history about Napoleon’s Eggs
The recipe for Napoleon eggs is a recipe that, according to legend, was born from the French soldier’s own request to enjoy the hot meal.
Far from liking great preparations, he preferred the simplest recipes with which nothing was cooled. Thus, the palace chefs stopped preparing excellent dishes and delicious delicacies, in favor of quick and very tasty recipes.

Bake the bread
