What to do with quail eggs?

Answered on August 19, 2014
Created December 11, 2011 at 6:20 PM

My local supermarket just started carrying these and I bought a box of 15 out of curiosity. I haven't found many recipes for them other than hard boiled or pickled. Any ideas?

I'm boiling them now for hardboiled, but there's gotta be something else to do with them different than what can be done with chicken eggs. As hardboiled, they look no different than chicken eggs, just tiny, and taste about the same, so I guess that can make a chicken egg dish differently, but is there anything more creative than that?

Interesting idea. I've recently taken to throwing them raw in soup (without the shells) and mixing the soup up, so it gets all creamy.

Great minds think alike and all that. :) I didn't keep any raw ones, but I'll drop by that supermarket again next week and pick up some more and give raw a shot. I fried one and I hard boiled the others. I'll probably eat'em with some home made baconaise. Tastes exactly like chicken eggs so far.

Chinese Century Eggs! I'm a huge fan of these for any kind of eggs. They make a great snack and keep in a jar in the fridge for a long time.

Here's a good recipe: http://rasamalaysia.com/chinese-tea-eggs-tea-leaf-eggs-recipe/2/

Substitute coconut aminos for soy sauce if you don't eat soy sauce. Skip the sugar or use a dash of stevia instead.

I sometimes toss in a pat of bacon grease and after cooking I transfer the peeled eggs to a mason jar (holds 6 eggs) and leave them stored inside the jar/mixture in the fridge (i.e. I don't dispose of the brine after cooking and usually re-use it for a new batch topping it off each time with fresh spices and seasonings to taste).

Quail eggs are a lot less likely to contain salmonella. I don't want to say it's impossible, but I have heard that quail are resistant to the salmonella bacteria. So this makes it safer to eat raw quail eggs than chicken eggs. For example I have had raw quail eggs on sushi.

Quail eggs are also higher in nutrition than chicken eggs, perhaps because quail are pastured / free-range, and tend to be richer and more creamy tasting, I think for the same reason.

Other than that, an egg is an egg and you can use them the same way. This time of year, make egg nog! I have no problem eating raw chicken egg yolks, but raw quail egg yolks would be even safer.

There is a Japanese restaurant in my neighborhood that serves a seaweed salad with shredded squid and they put a raw quail egg on top. I don't know what kind of seasoning it was, but it definitely had a bit of sesame oil, some form of vinegar, perhaps a sweetener, and salt. It had a clean aftertaste despite the squid and the raw egg, and was something nice to munch on before I got down and dirty with the sashimi :)

I sometimes make them with marinated anchovies as an appetizer, looks and tastes good.

My son was severely allergic to chicken eggs growing up but could tolerate quail eggs. I just fried 4-6 eggs in a pan for him for breakfast.

Deja vu! I believe this was asked recently but I don't recall seeing many answers besides the one I gave -- that raw quail eggs are freaking awesome. Very creamy and custardy-tasting.

I would consider them a novelty. Great for hors d'euvres (sp? lol) but not too practical for day to day use. A pain in the ass, frankly.
