Uptown Mini Bacon And Eggs

quail eggs


These mini bacon and egg bites make the perfect one-bite appetizer for your next cocktail party or brunch.  Very easy to make! I found the quail eggs at the Roanoke Co-op on Grandin Road in Roanoke, Virginia.

Mini Bacon And Egg Bites

Quail Eggs, hard boiled, cooled completely

Fried Pancetta (bacon may be substituted), crumbled

Grated Parmesan cheese

Fresh chives, chopped fine

Tiny drops medium Peri Peri (hot) sauce

Fill a small saucepan two-thirds full with water and bring to a rolling boil.
Add the quail’s eggs using a spoon. Do not overcrowd the pan.
Boil for 4 minutes.
Remove with a slotted spoon and cool down under cold running water or in a bowl filled with ice water.
Peel very carefully. (I found the shell of the quail eggs to be a bit more tough than a chicken egg, so I used a knife to cut a little slit in the shell to get the peeling process started.) Slice each egg into 4 or 5 slices.

On each cocktail spoon place some crumbled fried Pancetta , top with 2 or 3 quail egg slices, sprinkle a bit of Parmesan cheese and some chopped chives over the Pancetta and eggs. Place a drop of Peri Peri sauce on top of each egg.  Serve cold.

    Oh, I had the most wonderful quail eggs at The Inn at Little Washington a year or so ago and when I saw the Co-op had quail eggs, I did a little happy dance in the aisle. Thanks for your recipe. Looks like so much fun!

    I am so glad to hear that you do little happy dances in store aisles too when you find a special ingredient! Only true foodies understand that. I can imagine the quail eggs at The Inn at Little Washington were fabulous!

    My latest happy dance was when I saw six packs of Deschutes at Target!! 🙂 And yes, that quail egg dish was so much fun … served on teeny, tiny cast iron skillets. The level of detail there is mind-blowing….
