Asparagus with Quail Eggs

Total time: 20 minutes
     Asparagus is one of two foods (the other is bacon) that etiquette says one should eat with ones fingers, rather than a knife and fork.  For this, dip the tips in the egg yolk.... A fork will be needed for the rest of the eggs, however... And the rest of the quail eggs? Hard boil them for snacks (5 minutes).

Asparagus with Quail Eggs Instructions:




Tip:  If using quail eggs crack them and put them into 2 small bowls, 3 eggs each, to make frying them easier.  They'll be ready to slide into the hot pan.  The shells are a bit tougher then chicken eggs so it requires a bit more effort.
