Stylish, elegant, and a delight for guests, a pile of nature's camouflaged creamy blue brown speckled quail eggs makes the perfect gathering appetizer. Pile high as if building a bird's nest and let guests entertain themselves peeling and dipping them into a fragrant truffle salt. The clutch will disappear quickly, but the memory will linger.
Quail eggs have a mild, slightly gamey taste with an extra-rich, creamy yolk and higher yolk to white ratio than a chicken egg. Quail eggs are about the size of large olives. Cooked with the yolk just barely beginning to set, these tiny bite-sized treasures are gourmand delicacies ready to serve in under five minutes. Perfect for cocktail or garden parties, Sunday brunches, or added to salads.
