Ingredients

  • 1 onion (peeled and diced)
  • 1/2 green bell pepper (seeded and diced)
  • 250 grams minced meat (such as chicken or pork)
  • 12 quail eggs
  • parmesan cheese (grated)

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius.
  2. Add half of the oil to a skillet on medium heat. Cut the zucchini into 7- to 10-centimeter thick slices and cook for 4 to 5 minutes.
  3. In another skillet, add the remaining oil and saute the onion and bell pepper for 5 minutes. Add the minced meat. Cook for another 5 minutes and set aside.
  4. Once the zucchini are cooked, partially remove the insides using a melon baller, leaving a solid bottom in each.
  5. Use a knife to open the quail eggs, being careful not to break the yolk.
  6. Place 1 quail egg in each zucchini round, 6 in total.
  7. Continue to fill with the minced meat.
  8. Cover with grated Parmesan cheese and bake for 5 to 7 minutes until the cheese melts.
  9. Loosely cut pieces of plastic wrap and place each over a glass. Open the rest of the eggs and put each on top of a piece of plastic wrap, add some oregano and salt.
  10. Close the plastic wrap with some wire, creating a small bag.
  11. Cook for 2 minutes. Let them cool before removing the plastic wrap.
  12. Place the poached eggs on top of the zucchini for garnish.

This was an award-winning recipe that our whole family got to enjoy last weekend. It was not only a delicious meal to eat, it also taught me an easier way to poach eggs that cuts my cooking time by at least half. I will make this dish again and would rate it at 4 stars.
