About Eggs and Eastern and a Springtime Salad

Eastern is coming. In every shop one can find some Easterdecoration, some painted eggs, a lot of chocolate bunnies or chocolate chicks, chocolate eggs, praliné eggs, almondpaste eggs.... Eggs all around..! So it was self-evident that sooner or later I would look for a dish with eggs... I find Quaileggs cute and like to decorate with them for Eastern. So why not also eat them?

Serves 4 Person:
3 – 4 Quaileggs / person
750 g Potatoes
1 Red onion (sliced into cubes)
                                                     1 small iceberg lettuce
10 Tbsp. Verjus (or lemon juice)
3 Tbsp. Olive oil
Salt, Pepper, 20 g sunflowerseeds
Sesamoil to fry the eggs
 To coat the quail eggs with breadcrumbs you need (amount for about 12 quail eggs):
1 small egg (whisked with a fork)
6 Tbsp wheat flour
8 Tbsp breadcrumbs
(if you intend to coat more than 12 Quaileggs you must adjust the amount of flour, breadcrums and eventually also the egg)
1. Cook the potatoes as usual. Then peel them and cut into slices.
2. Meanwhile the potatoes cook, cut your onion into cubes and pour some hot water over them and let rest for 5 minutes (to get the onions milder and easier to digest), then drain them well and reserve for the preparation of the potatoes.
3. Prepare your lettuce by washing and cutting
4. Cook the Quaileggs for about 3 minutes in boiling water. Peel them and proceed with the breadcrumbcoating.
5. Prepare 3 different bowls filled one with flour,one  with the whisked egg and one with breadcrumbs
6. First roll the Quaileggs in flour, than in egg and finally cover all around with breadcrumbs
7. Heat up enough sesamoil in a pan and fry the breadcrumb coated Quaileggs until golden brown. Drain them on a kitchenroll.
8. In a separate Pan roast the sunflowerseed without any oil until slightly brown
9. Mix together Verjus (or lemon juice) and olive oil, season with salt and pepper and marinate  the potatoes and separately the lettuce. Fold the onion in the potatoesalad.
10. Now arrange on a plate the lettuce beneath the potatoes and Quaileggs aand disperse the sunflowerseeds over all...
