  • 12 quail eggs or whatever amount you need


  • Fill an appropriate sized saucepan with enough water to cover eggs by one inch. Do not add eggs yet.
  • Bring water to a full boil. Gently add eggs - I lower them in with a slotted spoon.
  • Maintain a light boil and cook for 3-4 minutes.
  • Carefully drain hot water and fill saucepan with ice cold water.
  • I find hard-boiled quail eggs are best served warm. Peel & serve or refrigerate until ready to use.
