Mini Son in Law Eggs

These little babies were apart of my submission to IL Desco’s Italian Dinner Competition.

The competition post is here.

My inclusion of Mini Son in Law Eggs stemmed from the fact that quail eggs share the same shape as the marinated olives that one typically finds on an Italian antipasti platter. No other reason. Sorry for not having some inception-level meaning behind this dish but on the plus side…these little eggs are deliciously balanced! Salty, sweet, tart, savory, creamy and topped with a little crunch.

Mini Son in Law Eggs

Traditionally Son in Law Eggs are eggs (duh) that have been boiled, then fried and finally topped with a sweet, savory, sauce and fried shallots. In my recipe, I opted for quail eggs and decided to skip the frying process (I’m trying to keep my manly curves!…from getting anymore curvier). If you saw the rest of the Italian dinner then you would understand. The carbs and alcohol was…let’s use the word…generous.

You can use regular eggs if you want, just boil it accordingly. It’s really is all about that sauce! Give it a try!

Recipe Notes

DO NOT USE CANNED QUAIL EGGS!!!...ok, you can if you don't have access to the real thing.

Boil the quail eggs for:

1 & 1/2 minutes for a soft boiled egg (runny yolk)

2-3 minutes for a yolk like mine.

4 & 1/2 - 5 minutes for a hard boiled egg.
