Here's what I did...
Once wrapped in the sausage meat and rolled in breadcrumbs ad baked, they made the right size scotch egg for what I was after, just a taste not a meal - Quail eggs might also make a good size scotch egg for the kids lunch box if you wanted to!
I was so sure I had a picture of the finished scotch eggs as I was so pleased with them but I can't find them anywhere... Sorry! But take my word for it that they are really cute and will be a real talking point at any gathering! I am now wondering what my council regulation are with regards to quail flocks and how many eggs you would get out of such a tiny creature on a weekly basis... *googles quails in Australia*
Green-ness: Hmmm... 4/5 for supporting a local grower?
Frugal-ness: 3/5 - no where near as cheap as organic chook eggs that have had classical music played to them and kept in a handmade organic hemp basket...
Time cost: Much quicker to cook than chook eggs - don't turn your back on them or they'll be over done!
Skill level: Umm.. Boiling water and watching the clock skill level!
Fun -ness: So so so cute and really worth the effort to track some down to have a play with!
