Quail Eggs

Even before I started cooking, I knew what quail eggs are. They are just tiny cute eggs. They are present in a lot of Chinese-influenced Filipino dishes. But I have never seen quail until I asked about it. The odd thing is, I see more quail than quail eggs in Continental cooking. And most applications of quail eggs are, well, to make eggs appear just a bit cuter. I think. 🙂

But I have never even mentioned quail eggs here simply because I find it a joy to eat, but a pain to peel. And this is what exactly happened during this blog post. Look:

But they’re just pretty. And the odd thing is, here, they’re simple small hard boiled eggs. But in other places, they become fried sunny side ups 🙂

Happy 2014 everyone! 🙂

      1. Either there is, or I am just extremely impatient. I tried peeling them hot, cold, wet, drier than usual. Give me a heads up when you find a way! 😛
