5 from 1 review


  • 10 quail eggs
  • ½ pound bulk sausage, raw
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • flour for dredging
  • bread crumbs for dredging


  1. Place quail eggs in a pot, cover with water and bring to a boil for 1 minute. Drain off hot water and cover with ice to stop the cooking process.
  2. When cool, peel the shells off the eggs. Flatten sausage into 10 pieces. The pieces should be big enough to encase the egg, but not too thick.
  3. Roll the eggs in flour then wrap the eggs with the flattened sausage. Bread the wrapped eggs by rolling them in flour, dipping them in raw beaten eggs and rolling in the bread crumbs.
  4. Deep fry in 350ºF oil for approximately 4 minutes.
