It’s no secret that all good things come in small packages, and when it comes to food, quail eggs make the cut. Once used explicitly for breakfast, over the past years eggs have been diversified into being used for a variety of recipes for both lunch and dinner. While the most common egg is the chicken egg, in this post we’re going to be talking about more specifically quail eggs.
Don’t know much about them? Don’t worry; we’ll give you the scoop.
Quail eggs are little eggs that come from Coturnix. Instead of having white or brown shells as chicken eggs, they have light brown shells with dark “freckles” and they’re about the size of a grape. Aside from being fun sized, quail eggs do have some advantages over chicken eggs. They are filled with cholesterol, and they’re enriched with vitamins, having more Vitamin B1 and vitamin B2 over chicken eggs. However, other than that, quail eggs taste just like chicken eggs and they’re cooked in the exact same way, which gives us the freedom to recreate every recipe out there that uses eggs, but in a more creative and fun way.
