The Portuguese One: Bruschetta with Tomato, Avocado, and Quail Egg
Fill a small saucepan two thirds full with water and bring to a boil. Add the quail’s eggs using a spoon. Boil for 2 to 4 minutes depending on your preference (I did 2:30 minutes). Remove and cool down under cold running water or in a bowl filled with ice water. Peel the eggs very carefully.
Grill your bread.
Rub toast with peeled garlic and drizzle with olive oil.
Cut your tomatoes into four pieces and cut avocado into chunky pieces. Mix both together with chopped parsley, some salt and pepper.
Place a spoon of the tomato-avocado mix on each slice of bread.
Cut eggs in half and put on top of your toast.
Sprinkle some dried oregano on top.
