Quail Scotch Eggs

Quail Scotch Eggs Header

This Quail Scotch Eggs recipe is one of our all-time favourites. Delicious and jam-packed with flavours, the Quail Scotch Eggs could be a bit time consuming and the tricky part is when shelling the quail eggs.  But once you have that step done, everything else is super easy and the outcome is oh.. so worth it, rewarding and so YUMMY!

To satisfy a much smaller tummy size, we have opted for quail eggs.  You can use regular eggs but the ratio of meat will be approximately 1 sausage per egg. Whereas for a quail egg, you only need 1/3 a sausage per egg to make the meat casing. So let’s dig in!


Quail eggs
Good quality sausages
3 Scoops of Tasteless Protein by Feel Good Protein
1 cup of Bread crumbs (gluten free works too)
One or two eggs (depending on how many scotch eggs you are making)
Spray olive oil
Mingle Simply The Zest Citrus Pepper


Boil a saucepan full of water and once the water is at a rapid boil, carefully lower your quail eggs in.

Boil the eggs for 2 minutes exactly, remove from the boiling water and quickly place in a bowl of cold water. 

Once the eggs are cooled enough to be handled carefully, shell them. This is a delicate process and can be a bit time consuming, so please don’t do this hastily or in a hurry.

In a separate bowl, add the meat from sausages and combine with Tasteless Protein from Feel Good Protein, mix until it’s well combined with the sausage.

Coating the Quail Eggs

Prepare a small bowl with beaten egg and another bowl where you pour bread crumbs into.

Scoop up enough of the meat mixture to wrap around your quail egg.

Mix one or two eggs in an empty bowl.

Dip the quail egg into your bowl of beaten egg.

After quail egg that has been dipped into the egg, coat it evenly with breadcrumbs and set aside on a lined baking sheet.

Repeat this process until all of your mixture is used up.

Frying the Quail Eggs

Spray with Olive Oil and sprinkle with Mingle Simply the Zest Citrus Pepper

Air fry your scotch eggs for 8 minutes each side, flipping half way through.

We serve ours with mayo, chili sauce and Tasteless Protein by Feel Good Protein, mixed together to make a dressing.
