Keywords: quail egg shots
Recipe Yield: 4 servings
Calories: approx. 50 kcal/serving
Preparation Time: 0H15M
Cooking Time: 0H1M
Total Time: 0H20M
- 4 quail eggs
- 1 tbsp bacon, fried and finely chopped
- 1 tsp chives or fresh onion
- salt to taste
Step 1: Grab a medium-sized saucepan and fill it with water. Turn on the heat and bring it to a boil. As soon as the water starts boiling, prepare to soft boil your quail eggs (very soft; they'll be runny). Soft boiling quail eggs is different from boiling chicken eggs. Since these ones are considerably smaller, they will require less time.
Step 2: We recommend you give the water a brisk swirl. As soon as you created a whirlpool, drop the quail eggs and leave them in for 1 minute. Then, remove them and place them under a stream of cold water for a couple of seconds. This will stop the cooking process and the eggs will remain soft and creamy, which is exactly what we want for this recipe.
Step 3: Next, peel the eggs. This step is rather difficult because it may require a little training beforehand. But you'll get the hang of it once you've boiled quail eggs a couple of times. Make sure you are gentle, so as not to take the white along with the shell. Only peel half of the egg.
Step 4: After you're done peeling the eggs, put them on a dot of cold butter. This will ensure that they stay in a vertical position. Take one tablespoon of fried and finely chopped bacon, and sprinkle it over the egg. Do the same for the chives or fresh onion. Don't forget to salt to taste. Serve immediately!
Of course, this recipe isn’t the only thing that works wonderfully as an elaborate snack. Take, for example, our deviled eggs recipe. People love deviled eggs. They’re small, delicious and satiating! In other words, a great snack that will keep people sober while they drink, and full enough so they don’t get hungry.
