Ingredients

Method

  • STEP 1

    Heat oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4. Generously grease 12 holes of a non-stick muffin (or cupcake) tin with butter.

  • STEP 2

    Heat the butter in a frying pan over a medium to high heat. Add the mushrooms. Fry for 4–5 mins until they begin to brown. Stir in the garlic, cook for 1 minute, then tip the mushrooms into a large bowl. Stir in the potato, ham and mozzarella. Season with salt and pepper.

  • STEP 3

    Divide the mixture among the muffin holes and bake in the oven for 25 mins or until golden brown. Remove from the oven and run a cutlery or palette knife around the edges of the nests to make sure they are not sticking to the pan. Then use the back of a teaspoon to press down the centre of each to make an indent large enough to hold a quail's egg. Crack a quail’s egg into each nest and return to the oven for 8–10 mins, until the egg white is set and the yolk runny. Cool in the tin for 1-2 mins, then carefully lift out with a palette knife.
