Quail's Eggs are divine little creatures that deserve their own "recipe" simply for being so cute! You can add them to salads or use as "decoration" for lots of other dishes.

Unfortunately, many people aren't sure how to cook quail's eggs, so don't buy them. For that reason, I can offer you this simple guide to getting your quail's eggs exactly as you want them.

How to Cook Quail's Eggs

  1. Fill a small saucepan two thirds full with water and bring to the boil. Add the quail's eggs using a spoon (do not overcrowd the pan). Boil for between 2½ and 4 minutes depending on your preference. Remove with a slotted spoon and cool down under cold running water or in a bowl filled with ice water. Peel very carefully.
  2. Quail's Eggs Cooking TimesThe 'secret' is, of course, how long you cook them for. So, to give you a guide, the eggs in the image were boiled for different lengths of time. From left to right and top to bottom, they were cooked for 2 minutes, 2½ minutes, 3 minutes, and 4 minutes.
  3. (Top Left) After two minutes, the white was only partially set and the yolk was still runny.
  4. (Top right) Two and a half minutes left the egg soft boiled with a white that was set and a yolk that was thick and runny.
  5. (Bottom Left) Three minutes led to a medium boiled egg with the yolk being mostly set.
  6. (Bottom Right) Four minutes gives a hard boiled egg with a completely set yolk.

 
Marie-Danielle MARIE-DANIELLE'S HOT TIP:
After cooking, be sure to cool the eggs down quickly under cold running water or in a bowl filled with ice water, otherwise they will continue to cook with their own retained heat.
