I have always thought that eggs molded with egg shapers were the cutest things ever. It never occurred to me that something can beat that in the cuteness department. How? Well, make them tinier by using QUAIL EGG MOLDS!
Yes, a couple of months ago, I was finally able to get my hands on a set of quail egg molds (from ebay, if you’re curious). I’ve been meaning to share the pics but I think my large blog post backlog is already common knowledge to most of you. These egg molds work the same way as the large ones for chicken eggs — slip hot peeled hardboiled egg in, then steep in water bath or pop in the freezer for a few minutes.
What came out were cute little eggs, three emblazoned with cute chick faces while the other three (only two shown here) were embossed with animal heads. It’s not a tool I’d used on a daily basis, but the instant cute factor they add to food is irresistible.
Together with my cute quail eggs, I had some crispy corned beef, steamed rice, and a small fresh salad of iceberg lettuce and tomatoes, to be dressed with a ready-made Japanese vinaigrette. Hearty, yes. Cute, very very much.
