How to Boil the Perfect Quail's EggFill a small saucepan two thirds full with water and bring to the boil.
Add the quail's eggs using a spoon. Do not overcrowd the pan.
Boil for 2.5 to 4 minutes depending on your preference.
Remove with a slotted spoon and cool down under cold running water or in a bowl filled with iced water.
Peel very carefully. Eggs peel easy if you start from top (round end of egg) and under cold water.
