Cheese Tamales + Stuffed Mushroom with Quail Eggs Recipe

Posted by Contact Tamale on

Cheese and Jalapeño Tamales with Stuffed MushroomsThis is our second recipe about how to step up your" egg game" with Quail Eggs. We are so lucky to be next to 4C Farms at the Rockwall Farmers Market. One of the perks of working a farmers market is the fact that some vendors like to trade. Not only do I enjoy the actual product, but I love the opportunity to share all of these amazing things that people might not even know about, or how to incorporate them with our tamales. 

I have been lucky to be given a few dozen Quail Eggs over this summer, and I thought I would do a 3 part series on how to serve them. I think a lot of people love the idea of quail eggs, but are a little threatened on how to actually cook them up. 

Cheese + Mushrooms are a match made in heaven, so I thought a egg baked mushroom with our Cheese and Jalapeño Tamales would be a great combination. This whole thing took less than 15 minutes to make.
