Deviled Quail Egg Canapé
- Simmer the quail eggs for 6 ½ minutes. Shock and peel as quickly as possible under cold water.
- Cut the eggs in half lengthwise, take out yolks, and reserve the whites.
- Push the yolks through a sieve into a mixing bowl. Add just enough mustard and mayonnaise to make the mixture easy to pipe out. Season with the Worcestershire, salt and pepper.
- Canapé Assembly: Pipe a small rosette of the deviled yolk mixture onto the pumpernickel bread. Place the egg white on top at a slight angle tilting upward. Pipe enough yolk mixture into the cavity of the egg white just to fill it. Garnish with a small dollop of caviar and very small sprig of dill.
