    1. Tiny Eggs Benedict

    Itty-Bitty Country-Style Eggs Benedict

    Makes 16


    Biscuit dough, 1 (16-ounce) can store-bought or homemade

    1/2 pound breakfast sausage

    3 tablespoons vegetable oil, divided

    16 quail eggs, plus 1 or 2 chicken egg whites*

    Roasted Garlic Cheese Sauce

    2 teaspoons unsalted butter

    1 head roasted garlic, mashed

    2 teaspoons all-purpose flour

    3/4 cup milk (whole or low fat)

    2 ounces sharp white cheddar cheese, grated

    Salt and pepper, to taste

    * Quail eggs tend to have a high yolk-to-white ratio. Adding 1 or 2 chicken egg whites to the quail eggs and cooking them all together will ensure that you have enough whites between the yolks to form perfect sunny-side-up eggs.

    1. Preheat oven and bake biscuits according to package instructions. Cut sausage into 16 coins. Warm 1 tablespoon of the oil in a medium skillet over medium heat. Add sausages and cook for 4 to 5 minutes on each side; remove from heat.

    2. Gently crack quail eggs into a small bowl and pour in chicken egg whites. Heat the remaining 2 tablespoons of oil in a large ovenproof skillet over medium heat. Carefully pour eggs into skillet and cook for 3 minutes. Reduce oven temperature to 350°F and place skillet in the oven. Bake for 3 to 5 minutes, or until whites have set. Gently transfer eggs in a single sheet from the skillet to a cutting board. Use a 1 1/2-inch circle cutter to cut eggs into 16 rounds, centering the cutter around a yolk so that each cut round looks like a little fried egg.

    3. For the cheese sauce, melt butter in a small saucepan over medium heat. Add garlic and flour and whisk for 3 minutes. Add milk and whisk until no lumps remain and the mixture begins to thicken. Stir in cheese and season with salt and pepper. Simmer for 2 minutes more, or until sauce is smooth and creamy.

    4. Slice each biscuit in half. Place a sausage coin over each biscuit half and top with a sunny-side-up quail egg and a drizzle of cheese sauce. Serve warm.
