HOW TO PREPARE THE QUAIL EGGS OMELET WEDGES
Making this recipe is not really that different from preparing a regular chicken egg omelet. But the result is a creamier, slightly more dense omelet because quail eggs have a higher yolk to white ratio as compared to chicken eggs.
Bacon & Brie Quail Eggs Omelet Wedges
- 2 tbsp olive oil extra virgin
- 200 g smoked lardon
- 30 quail eggs
- 100 g brie
- 1 tsp Dijon mustard
- 200 g radishes
- 1 cucumber
- Prepare your ingredients by lightly beating 30 quail eggs with a fork. Grab a small bunch of chives and wash them under cold running water. Then, drain them properly and snip them. Half a cucumber that was previously washed and remove its seeds. Next, slice it on the diagonal. Now, thoroughly wash the radishes and quarter them.
- Grab a small pan and heat up 1 tablespoon of cold-pressed olive oil. Add the lardons and fry them until they become crisp and golden. Keep stirring with a wooden spoon in order to fry them evenly.Keep an eye on them all the time, because you really want to avoid burning them. When you finish frying the lardons, place them on kitchen paper. This helps to drain the excess oil.
- Next, grab a decent-sized non-stick frying pan and heat up about 2 tablespoons of olive oil. While the pan is heating up, mix the beaten eggs with the fried lardons snipped chives. Add some ground pepper for seasoning.Then, pour this mixture into the frying pan and cook over low heat until the omelet is nearly set. Next, lay the brie on top. Grill until it's all set and has a beautiful golden color. Remove the omelet from the pan and cut into gorgeous wedges upon serving.
- Now, until the quail eggs, omelet wedges cool down, prepare the summer salad. Grab some olive oil, lemon, mustard, and seasoning and put everything in a bowl. Toss in the cucumber and radishes. Add some salt, pepper, and lemon juice and mix everything. Serve this refreshing summer salad alongside the almost warm omelet wedges.
If you want to cut down on your fat intake, make the omelet without adding the brie or, at least, reduce the brie quantity to half. But, of course, this changes everything. Your breakfast omelet will be tasty but it will lack the creamy texture the brie gives it.
Because of the nutritional profile, this is an ideal breakfast or brunch recipe that you can make 2-3 times a week if you’re moderately active to active. If you want an even fresher upgrade, just cut some cherry tomatoes in halves, season them with salt, pepper, and a torn mint leaf. You will love it!
