Tiny little hard-cooked quail eggs are adorable and versatile. You can buy them fresh and boil them yourself, or buy them already boiled, peeled, and canned at an Asian grocery store (check near the canned mushrooms and water chestnuts). The flavor isn’t quite perfect, says paulj, but store-bought is much more convenient.
Hard-cooked quail eggs are delicious as a snack with a few drops of Tapatío or Sriracha sauce, says crt. Or pickle them in the juice from some canned jalapeños. The eggs pick up the heat from the jalapeños quite quickly!
If you really want to show off, though, MMRuth has made deviled quail eggs—as hors d’oeuvres, with truffle oil and a slice of black truffle on top.
