How long does it take to hard boil quail eggs?

Answer

Hard-boiled quail eggs cook in 2 to 3 minutes. Place them in a pan, cover them with cold water and simmer over medium heat. Do not begin timing the eggs until the water is at a low boil.

Once they are cooked, place the quail eggs under running cold water to cool them. They are then ready to be cracked and peeled. Soft-boiled quail eggs cook very quickly and are ready in just one minute. Although quail eggs are tiny, many recipes contain them as ingredients. The size and shape of a quail egg resembles a large olive. Its shell is off-white with brown speckles. These eggs have a large amount of yolk in proportion to the white.
