Cook poached eggs (the yolk should remain liquid - this is important!). Immediately cool them in ice water, gently clean the shell (do not damage the protein!) and dry on a paper towel. Minced meat combine with grated on a fine grater garlic and ground spices, add salt, black pepper. Stuffing divided into 4 parts, each formed into an oval cake thickness of about a centimeter. In the center of each tortilla put the egg and close up the stuffing to make a ball with the egg inside. Each such ball is to wrap a strip of bacon along and across in all directions. The result should be like a cocoon of bacon. It is important to take good care of egg not to damage the protein shell around a liquid yolk!
