Quail Eggs - Creamy and Delicious:
Options for Cooking/Eating:
Fried - put 2 tablspoons of oil into a pan on a medium to hot heat and once it starts smoking add the Quail eggs. To crack the egg simply put a knife into the shell about 5mm but not too far to break the yolk and break off a section to allow the egg to slip out into the pan. Fry for approximately 1 minute or until the white is completely set and the edges are golden brown.
Boiled - heat a saucepan about 2/3 full of water and bring it the boil. Then lower the eggs into the pan with a slotted spoon and cook for 2 minutes for runny yolk and up to 4 minutes for hard boiled eggs. Remove with a slotted spoon and put them into cold water for a few minutes to stop them cooking any longer and then peel.
Poached - fill a medium sized saucepan with water to a depth of 4cm and heat to just simmering and break the eggs into the saucepan and cook uncovered for 2 minutes. Using a slotted spoon remove the eggs from the saucepan and place them in cold water to stop them cooking any further and they are ready to go.
