Quail eggs are considered a delicacy in many parts of the world, including Asia, 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 Brazil, Colombia, Ecuador 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 Indonesia, small packages of hardboiled quail eggs are sold by street vendors as snacks, and skewered quail eggs are sold as satay to accompany main dishes such as soto and bubur ayam. In Vietnam, bags of boiled quail eggs are sold on street stalls as inexpensive beer snacks. In South Korea, large inexpensive bags of boiled quail eggs are sold in grocery stores.

My wife said check the front door, someone she gifted some pea straw on a faeces book page, the guy called and said he would drop some eggs off. I now have 7 quail eggs.
I've never had or tried these. Suggestions appreciated??
I've made scotch eggs, but I find that the huge size (1/4 pound of pork for each egg) is quite a commitment in terms of how much you have to eat. Quail eggs need about 1 1/2 ounces of sausage per egg, and so are more snack-sized. But, the eggs themselves are tough to work with because they're so...
Unashamedly pretentious! But I had such fun. :D This is intended as an individual starter plate.
