    My favorite thing to do with quail eggs is to hatch them, but due to pen space and other requirements I have to keep that in check. [​IMG]

    I can't think of a fancy recipe for quail eggs as they are delicious pretty much any way you cook them. The only things I can think of that they are not good substitutes for chicken eggs is, fancy baked goods. The kind that calls for X many yolks with Y many whites or only one or the other.

    I like to eat them fried and my niece just loves them! They are good hard boiled and I plan on making deviled eggs this Christmas with them. They should be perfect bite sized appetizers! Haven't ever tried that yet, but I bet they'll be cute and I have a deviled egg plate and two per spot should fit nicely.

    Bento boxes....I'll have to check that out.
    Ok....Those are too cute!
    Here is a link!
