I bought a huge amount of quail eggs yesterday at the farmer's market, but each time I think of what to do with them, the quail-egg-eating scene in "The Tudors" pops into my mind and I go eat hot dogs instead. Could you tell me about them and if there are any specific, awesome uses?
And would it be completely ridiculous to make sunny side up fried quail eggs?

Laura, first a question for you: is this the scene
you're talking about? Second, you can eat quail eggs pretty much any way you might eat chicken eggs: baked, deviled, pickled, and yes, sunny side up!
Here's a bit more info:

Readers, do you have any recommendations for especially awesome ways to use quail eggs?
