My kids love quail eggs. Even though they taste exactly like hen eggs, they want quail eggs because they are so little and fun. They challenged me to make an egg salad on a stick and this is what I came up with. Use whatever ingredients your family likes. They are healthier than hen eggs. Typically 5 quail eggs equals one serving. Serve chilled or at room temperature with mustard, mayonnaise, and capers.

Recipe Ingredients

  • 16 quail eggs
  • 1 tablespoon distilled white vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 16 bread cubes, toasted
  • 2 marinated artichoke hearts, drained and quartered
  • 16 cocktail onions
  • 8 miniature pickles
  • 8 sun-dried tomatoes packed in oil, drained
  • 8 skewers
  • ¼ teaspoon ground paprika

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Place eggs in a saucepan and cover with water; stir in vinegar and salt. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to medium, cover the saucepan, and cook until eggs are set, about 4 minutes. Let sit, covered, for 2 minutes. Rinse eggs in cold water and cool to room temperature; peel.
  2. 2 Thread 1 bread cube, 1 artichoke quarter, 1 onion, 1 egg, 1 pickle, 1 onion, 1 egg, 1 sun-dried tomato, and 1 bread cube, respectively, onto each bamboo skewer. Sprinkle finished "sandwiches" with paprika.

Chef's Notes

To peel quail eggs quickly, instead of your fingers, use a demi-spoon (like the ones used for espresso coffee). Break open the top, peel away enough shell to insert the edge of the spoon between the egg and the membrane right under the shell, and move it around to loosen the shell away from the egg. Quail egg shells are stronger than hen eggs so they don't break away easily unless you can get under the lining.

  1. This is a wonderful idea! I made these for a party and people went nuts over them. Thank you Melanie for such an amazing recipe!
  2. This recipe was quite tasty and fun to boot. I would have loved artichokes but hubby is not a fan so I used black olives instead which worked fine too. This is a perfect summertime lunch that won't leave you feeling weighted down with all of the bread in your typical egg salad sandwich. Plus - Read more ...
