Had a first for breakfast this morning, Quail Eggs! I picked these up at Jungle Jim’s yesterday. I had always wanted to try them and they had plenty in stock. To open the Egg you have to take a knife and carefully puncture the big part of the Egg at the top. Then remove the top of the Egg so you can pour the Egg out of it’s shell into the skillet. If you fry it, which is what I did, it will fry in about 45 seconds. They are the perfect size for you English Muffin! I’ll try them a differnt way tomorrow for breakfast. I had Bob Evans Turkey Sausage Links and a Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin also.
A little background on the Quail Egg!
Quail eggs are considered a delicacy in many countries, including western Europe and North America. In Japanese cuisine, they are sometimes used raw or cooked as tamago in sushi and often found in bento lunches.
In some other countries, quail eggs are considered less exotic. In Colombia and Venezuela, a single hard-boiled quail egg is a common topping on hot dogs and hamburgers, often fixed into place with a toothpick. In the Philippines, kwek-kwek is a popular street food delicacy, which consists of soft-boiled quail eggs dipped in orange-colored batter before being skewered and deep-fried. In Vietnam, bags of boiled quail eggs are sold on street stalls as inexpensive beer snacks.
Quail eggs are often believed to be very high in cholesterol, but evidence shows their cholesterol levels are similar to chicken eggs.
