Ingredients

  • 24 ready-made cocktail blinis
  • 8 slices of parma ham
  • 5 tbsp mayonnaise
  • 2½ tsp dijon mustard
  • A squeeze of lemon juice
  • 12 ready-cooked quails eggs
  • Freshly snipped chives (to serve)

Method

  1. Heat the oven to 200°C/180°C fan/gas 6. Warm the ready-made cocktail blinis in the oven for a few minutes, then set aside.
  2. Meanwhile lay out the parma ham on a baking sheet and crisp in the oven for 3-4 minutes. Set aside to cool.
  3. In a small bowl combine the mayonnaise, dijon mustard, lemon juice and seasoning. Top each blini with a dollop of mayo mix, a few shards of the crispy parma ham and half a ready-cooked quail egg. Add a touch more mayo, grind over black pepper and sprinkle with freshly snipped chives to serve.
