    Nif's Note:

    Before you say "EWWW! Quail eggs!!!", you really have to try these. They are a lot like chicken eggs, but smaller (obviously!) and a little smoother tasting. My grocery store carries them but if you can't find them, check out an Asian market. I don't put a lot of seasoning into the deviled mixture because these little guys don't want to be overpowered. They present beautifully on a nest of persley or dill and taste very good. Enjoy!

    My Private Note



    half eggs

    Units: US | Metric

    • 18 quail eggs
    • 1/4 cup mayonnaise (I use half fat Helllmann's)
    • 1 teaspoon fresh dill
    • salt and pepper
    • fresh dill (to garnish, optional) (optional) or chives (to garnish) (optional)


    1. 1
      Heat water to boiling, gently set eggs into water. Boil 5-6 minutes and then rinse under cold water. Do NOT use a rolling boil or the eggs will break. If your eggs do break, keep their yolks anyway.
    2. 2
      Let cool completely. Peel eggs and cut in half lengthwise. Pop yolks out into a small bowl.
    3. 3
      To yolks, add mayo and dill. Mix very well, then salt and pepper to taste.
    4. 4
      Put yolk mixture into a plastic sandwich bag. Pipe mixture into each egg half.
    5. 5
      Garnish with fresh dill or chives.
