With their diminutive size, quail eggs make excellent hors d’oeuvres—they often appear in deviled eggs, Scotch eggs (meat-egg fritters), and egg-topped blini. In Asia, raw quail yolks are used in sushi, while Colombians dress hot dogs with hard-boiled quail eggs (in addition to pineapple jam and potato chips). In some Latin American countries, quail eggs are considered an aphrodisiac. Brazilians eat more than half a million of them every day. —J.S.
