Quail Egg Brunch Bites
Contrary to propaganda from breakfast lobbyists, brunch is the most important meal of the day. When you invite people over for brunch you can get away with making any kind of food you want. Plus, brunch implies good company and free time in the middle of the day. Added bonus!!
You can make brunch even more exciting by going miniature. Here are three tiny brunch bites you can easily make out of quail eggs: deviled eggs, scotch eggs, and sausage egg biscuits.
Whether you could really use a good brunch to lift your spirits or have way more quail eggs than you know what to do with, these delicious bites will help.
Ingredients:12 Quail Eggs. 1 – 2 Tablespoons Mayonnaise. 2 teaspoons Mustard. 1 teaspoon Paprika. 1/4 teaspoon Cayenne. Salt and Pepper to taste. Green Onions as garnish.
Bring three cups of water to boil in a medium saucepan.
Drop the quail eggs in the boiling water and boil for 4 minutes
Take the pan off the heat and run it under cold water for 2 minutes.
Peel the eggs (Doing this under running water may help. The first one is tricky, but you’ll get the hang of it)
Cut the eggs in half and scoop out the yolk into a separate bowl (I find it’s easiest to do this with my fingers)
Mix remaining ingredients into the yolks with a fork. Start with 1 Tablespoon mayonnaise and add until the mixture reaches your desired consistency.
Cut off the corner of a plastic bag and insert a frosting piping tip. Use a spatula to scoop the yolk mixture into the bag.
Pipe the yolk mixture into the egg halves.
Garnish with more paprika and sliced green onions, if desired.
