  • 20 quail eggs
  • 3 potatoes
  • 7 ounces mushrooms
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 5 ounces cheddar cheese
  • basil
  • olive oil


  • Take three medium-sized baking potatoes and then peel them. Cut them carefully into bite-sized chunks similar to cubes. After that take 2 garlic cloves and slice them. Make sure they are thin enough to release the flavor but not too thin or else they might burn easily. After that, grate the cheddar cheese, about 140 g. Next, quarter the mushrooms.
  • Then take a large pot and fill it with water. Add a pinch of salt with herbs in it to add some extra flavor to the potatoes. Put the potatoes in and bring them to a boil. Let them cook for 5 minutes, then drain.
  • After that, grab a large frying pan and heat some olive oil. Then, cook the potatoes, mushrooms, and garlic for 5-10 minutes over medium heat. Make sure the mushrooms soften and the potatoes develop brown edges. After that, stir in the basil, about 1 tablespoon or 3-4 fresh leaves, and then cook for one more minute.
  • Take a wooden spoon and transfer the potato mixture into a heat-resistant glass baking dish. Then, sprinkle the cheddar cheese and the remaining basil on top, making sure you layer it evenly. Then, with a teaspoon, make some holes in the mixture and crack in the quail eggs.
  • Now turn your oven on - low to medium heat works best. Put the dish in the oven and bake it for about 40 minutes. You'll know it's ready when the eggs are set and the cheese is melted.
  • Remove the dish from the oven and let it cool down a bit. Serve warm. Add more cheese and some Tabasco, if you like spicy food. If not, enjoy the baked quail eggs with mushrooms and potatoes just like that or with a yogurt dip, as mentioned above.

Do not preheat the oven right from the start for this recipe, because the quail eggs, as well as the mushrooms, will end up being too dry.
