Baked Quail Eggs in Coconut Milk with Truffle Butter

© 2023 |

© 2023 |

It’s a quick and easy recipe that requires minimal ingredients and effort to make. Perfect as a breakfast or an appetizer served with your favourite crusty bread or even a salad for maximum enjoyment and flavour! If desired, add some bacon bits and cheese for extra flavour and texture.
I used black pepper from Kerala--home to the best peppers in the world, but you can use Tellicherry or Kampot.

  • 1 tsp Truffle butter, softened
  • 9-12 Quail eggs
  • 5 tbsp Coconut milk (I use Aroy-D)
  • Sea salt
  • Kerala black pepper
  • 1 tbsp Chives, chopped
  1. Prehea the oven to 200C/400F. Brush a 15cm cast iron skillet or 4 ramekins with truffle butter. Crack quail eggs into buttered skillet or 3 quail eggs into each ramekin. (I use 9 quail eggs for the skillet and 3 eggs in a small bowl.
  2. Season the coconut milk with salt and black pepper. Pour over the eggs. Bake in the hot oven until eggs are just set but yolks are still runny, 5-7 minutes.
  3. Rinse and dry the chives, then cut into fine rings and sprinkle over the eggs. Serve immediately.

Oh my goodness, Angie, perfect timing. My husband and I just had steak tartare for an appetizer this weekend and it was topped with the most perfect quail's egg! He said to me to start buying quail's eggs and I said, "YES, Let's do!" I must try this recipe asap! Thanks for sharing!

Curiosa receta, nunca he probado nada igual, la leche de coco me gusta y los huevos también, yo creo que disfrutaré de ambos en esta preparación.

I've never seen quail eggs for sale. We might not have them here. Your eggs look yummy though.

What a lovely way to cook quail eggs, and in coconut milk, perfect.The eggs wouldn't take long to cook and the truffle flavour would take it to the next level. A very clever dish, thanks Angie

Hi Angie I was deleting spam this morning while approving comments and hit delete on your comment after reading it sorry. There were a lot of spam comments.

I remember hunting for quail eggs last year---I had found them many years ago and now don't even remember why I was looking. But I love this recipe of yours and will be on the lookout again.

Rohhhh! voilà un plat qui m'a l'air succulent et aussi beau que bon !

Wow, this recipe looks so delicious! I love the simplicity of the ingredients and how easy it is to put together. I've never tried quail eggs like this before. Tthe combination of truffle butter, coconut milk, and black pepper sounds amazing. The addition of chives on top gives it a nice fresh touch. I can't wait to give this a try and serve it with some crusty bread or a salad. Thank you for sharing!

Angie, My better half would love this dish...but where in the heck would we find quail eggs. I've never seen them in any stores. Must be a lot of specialty stores where you live... Take Care, Big Daddy Dave
