Quail Eggs

Friends of ours decided to raise chickens and quail.  Their chickens haven't been doing well thanks to their dogs.  They like chicken.  The quail have been multiplying very quickly and they have an abundance of eggs.  I have received a gift of two gallon sized bags of quail eggs.

So far we have had them boiled and fried.  I think a breakfast casserole will be in order to use them up also.  We are not big on pickled eggs.  It's a little tougher to crack a quail egg than a chicken egg.   The easiest way is to cut across the top of the egg with a serrated knife or you can crack the egg like any other and carefully break the inner membrane with your fingers.  I would go with using a knife if you want to keep the yolks whole.  

It has been pretty warm here, temperatures reached 105 yesterday.   School begins this week also.
