RobinBenzle's picture
To boil quail eggs, carefully place eggs in boiling water with a slotted spoon. When the water comes back to a boil, cook for exactly 3 1/2 minutes. Drain and run eggs under cold water for several minutes. Carefully peel the eggs under running water. Serve as an hors d'oeuvre with a mustard dipping sauce (equal parts mustard and mayonnaise); slice in half and use in a salad; or fry them sunny-side up in a little butter.
  Quail eggs 16
  Oil 2 Tablespoon
  Brown mustard 4 Tablespoon
  Mayonnaise 4 Tablespoon

For the boiled quail eggs with dipping sauce:
1)Hard boil the eggs in boiling water for exactly 3.5 minutes.
2)In a bowl combine mustard and mayonnaise.
3)Place them in cold water and peel them under running water.

For the fried quail eggs:
4)Heat a pan or a griddle with oil and fry the eggs sunny side up.

5)Serve the boiled eggs on salads or with a dipping sauce on the side. Serve the fried eggs at breakfast and enjoy!

Love seeing your excitement over these lovely little eggs. However, you stated that these eggs are Bobwhite eggs and they are not. Bobwhite eggs are even smaller and are all white, these are courtnix quail eggs. Similar but not the same. I raise both. Thanks Tiffany
