  • chopping board
  • knife
  • skillet or a pan


  • 2 red onions
  • 3 springs onions
  • 300 g chestnut mushrooms
  • 400 g sausages
  • 200 g lardons
  • 8 quail eggs
  • 10 springs parsley
  • 100 g mozzarella cheese (grated or cut into cubes)
  • salt (to taste)
  • pepper (to taste)
  • thyme


  • Pre-heat the oven at 180 C. Make the skillet available/ready.
  • Start by chopping the onions the mushrooms and cutting the sausages into small chunks.
  • Place the onions into a frying pan along with the chopped mushrooms and the fresh sausages. Set initially on low fire until the sausages start releasing some of their fat. Drizzle a little water if you consider it necessary. Cook for 5 minutes and then add the lardons and the spring onions. Cook on medium fire for further 3-4 min. Turn fire off and set aside. I did not think this dish needs any oil as the sausages and the lardons will release more than sufficient.
  • Chop the parsley and cut or grate the mozzarella cheese.
  • Place everything in the skillet.
  • Sprinkle the parsley, the cubed/grated cheese salt and pepper to taste along with a little fresh or dry thyme.
  • Break the quail eggs and place one by one scattered around on top.
  • Place in the preheated oven and bake for 5 -7 minutes, longet if you are using regular size eggs.
  • Take out when ready and serve pretty much straight away. ***
