cheese bacon tomatoes filo pastry
Scraps of FILO pastry
100g Brie/Camembert
50g Stilton or a blue cheese 
30g Wensleydale
2 slices of bacon
6 sundried tomatoes
1 Egg
Glass of wine for chef
This is the kind of recipe that you would make with leftovers, I came up with this as I didn't want to waste the scraps of FILO that were broken and not useable with the recipe I was making (Jamie Olivers Lamb Pastillas) Raid the fridge and make up your own versions with whatever you have in. You'll just need a melting cheese and whatever else you have to hand. 
Preheat your oven to 180C Gas Mark 5
Lay the pieces of FILO in the individual ramekins or bowls, beat your egg and brush over the top.
Put into the oven for around 5-10 minutes until brown and crispy
Meanwhile chop your bacon and fry in some of the sundried tomato oil until crispy
Chop the sundried tomatoes into little pieces and add to a bowl
Add the bacon when done and drained from the pan
chop, tear or crumble your cheeses and add to the bowl
When your nests are done add the mixture to each dish and pop back into the oven for 10 minutes or until oozy.
Serve with crusty bread and homemade chutney.
