cojonudos (fried quail egg with chorizo on a toasted baguette)

1 dozen quail eggs
12 slices of a baguette (cut on the bias)
12 slices of chorizo (cut on the bias)
extra virgin olive oil (for frying)

preheat the oven to 400 degrees.

cut the chorizo into 1/4" slices. in a medium size frying pan fry the chorizo on both sides. remove the chorizo and set aside. in the same pan keep the oil from the chorizo and add a touch of olive oil, and fry the quail eggs 2 at a time. remove the fried eggs and set aside. drizzle olive oil over the toasted baguette.

build your cojonudos by placing the chorizo on top of the baguette and the fried quail egg on top of the chorizo. sprinkle with a pinch of salt and paprika. place in the oven for 3 mins.

makes 12 bite size pieces.

enjoy :)
