We’ve all been there. We’re hungry but not too hungry but hungry enough. What to eat? A mini-meal is definitely in order!
If you like eggs or runny egg yolks, then bookmark this page! Seriously, this small meal is fulfilling, flavorful, full of texture and simple to throw together.
This recipe is inspired by a display of quail eggs I strolled by at Surfas, in Culver City. One of my best friends, Jen, was there to witness it. I had to do a double-take! If you’ve read about my low maintenance one-pan sliders, you know that the sensation of inspiration ignites my fire to take action.
The quail eggs were perfectly speckled, shapely and smooth. Moreover, I just love how earthy they looked, as if they were removed from the quail nest one hour before. I knew at the moment these gems would produce something quite tasty.
I didn’t know much about the marble-sized quail eggs, so to Google I went.
