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.




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)
