Baked Quail Egg Bites

These eggs are nestled in layers of phyllo dough, and are topped with bacon, scallions and cheese. This is a perfect breakfast or brunch idea that will impress the whole gang.


  • 1 container Fresh All Natural Farm Raised Quail Eggs, 15 count
  • 1 box Athens Mini Fillo Shells (Light crispy layers of Phyllo Dough), 15 count
  • 12 pieces Bacon, cooked and roughly broken up
  • 2 Scallions or Chives, diced
  • Sharp Cheddar or Vegan Cheese of choice, grated (small amount needed)
  • Freshly Ground Black Pepper, to taste
  • Himalayan Pink Salt, to taste


  1. Phyllo Shells: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Add the phyllo shells to a mini muffin pan. (The mini muffin pan is the perfect size for the shells, and it will help to prevent them from tipping over).
  2. Assemble: Divide one piece of bacon among the phyllo shells, top with some grated cheese pieces and set aside.
  3. Add the eggs: With a serrated knife, gently slice off the top of each egg, and pour them into the individual phyllo shells. (Note: cracking the eggs will not work, because they are too delicate).
  4. Bake: Season with salt and pepper. Bake for 10-13 minutes, or until whites are cooked through and yolks begin to thicken, but not cooked hard.
  5. Garnish: Top with scallions or chives.
  6. Optional: Top with an additional piece of bacon. Serve hot.


  • Phyllo Shells: Sometimes the bottom of the shells are bubbled up. If so, gently press down on the shell to slightly break that bubble. This will help prevent the filling from overflowing.
  • Bacon: One piece of bacon will work to fill the bottom of all the shells. Feel free to top the baked eggs with an additional piece as well though. 
  • Scallions/Chives: Either one will work here, but I do prefer the flavor of the chives with the delicate taste of the quail eggs.
