Serves: 4+
  1. Place the quail eggs into a pot, cover with water and bring to a boil, and then cook for 3 more minutes.
  2. Once cooked drain the hot water from the pot, add cold water and a few ice cubes and let them cool. Once cold, gently peel the eggs.
  3. In a large bowl mix the beef with the onion, parsley, salt and pepper.
  4. Scoop about 1 tablespoon of meat mixture and mold it into the shape of a pancake that is about 2X-3X the diameter of the quail egg. Place the egg in the middle and gently wrap the egg in the beef pancake.
  5. Roll each in flour, then dip it into the beat egg to quickly coat it and lastly roll it in the bread crumbs.
  6. In a large pan over high heat, warm the oil (about 1cm depth of oil) and when the oil is hot, add the scotch egg. Fry until the beef is cooked and golden brown on each side.
