Scotch quail eggs are a delicious appetizer. The quail eggs are boiled for 2 minutes and a half, peeled, wrapped in sausage, coated in bread crumbs and cooked. The result is a flavorful and hearty appetizer, which can also be served for breakfast.

The recipe:


Step 1: Prepare the Ingredients

Ingredients (for 6 servings):

  • 12 quail eggs
  • 300g sausage meat (I used homemade paprika sausage) - 10.5 oz
  • 2 Tbsp fresh chopped parsley
  • 1/3 cup grated parmesan cheese (30 - 35g)
  • 2 chicken eggs
  • ½ cup dry bread crumbs (60g)
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp pepper

for serving:

  • cucumber slices
  • cherry tomatoes
  • Kalamata olives


  • a small bowl and a large bowl (both filled with water)
  • 10 ice cubes
  • a cutting board
  • a sharp knife
  • a deep fryer
  • a paper towel


  • tsp = teaspoon
  • Tbsp = tablespoon

<p>This recipe is cool! i have some leftover spinach I'll be adding to the egg instead of parsley: they're a timeless combination! </p>
