    So I finally let my curiosity get the best of me and got quail eggs today at a farmers market. Does anyone have any advice? Frankly, I planned on cooking them in a bit of butter, sunny side up with grits. I want to get creative here, but much of what I have read recommends boiling, but that just isn't what I want. Help?

    LOL, I just peeled 400 quail eggs in preparation for making deviled quail eggs as a garnish for a party on Thursday, you probably don't want my advice right now.

    No help needed. It's an egg. Sunny side is fine. Deviled is a nice option (although Cheflayne may disagree momentarily. 400 is a lot of quail eggs.) 

    They behave no differently than any other egg.

    we love them pickled, and hard boiled in noodle soups.
