I agree Judith, but the kids like them naked.

Eilismaura - I boiled the quail's eggs for four minutes in a boiling pan of water, then ran them under cold water so the yolks don't turn greenish. That was done the night before. In the morning, I wrapped the strips of bacon around the egg and secured them with a toothpick and grilled them until the bacon got a bit crispy looking, about 10 minutes in my oven. Let them cool, then removed the sticks. Easy-peasy. Sassy said she really liked them.
