Quail Eggs in Meat Balls

The quail eggs look so small and pretty, it’s hard to consider cooking them really… well, until you actually do cook them.

 

Ingredients:

 

10 quail eggs boiled

2/3 pound ground beef

1 cup chopped parsley

2 scallions chopped

2 garlic cloves crushed

pink salt & black pepper

1/2 basil

1/2 oregano

2 tbs olive oil

1/3 cup white flour

Put all the ingredients in a bowl (except for the boiled quail eggs) and mix them well together.

Divide the meat in 2 large balls, and then divide each ball in 5 smaller balls (it help to give you an idea of how much meat to use).

Cover each quail egg (shell removed, of course) in a meat ball and then cover with a thin layer of flour.

Place the meat balls over a pachment paper covered cookie sheet, then cover the pan with aluminium foil.

Using a tooth pick make 6 -7 holes in the aluminium foil.

Roast the meat balls at 390 F for 15 – 20 minutes.

(or fry them- the not-so-healthy alternative)
