I never knew how great quail eggs were the quail eggs make a very different scrambled egg..creamy, rich, just special. Leave out mushrooms or use different ones, or use green onions or chives.. The thing is to not use something that will overpower their flavor, for this simple dish.

  • 1 tablespoon cream
  • 12 ounce chanterelle mushroom (fresh if possible)
