Quail Egg Croquettes 鹌鹑蛋可乐饼

The other day i was planning to make some croquette (a breadcrumbed fried potato ball) for the bento lunch to send for my son in the school. While i getting some potatoes at the supermarket, and spot some quail eggs on the shelve, then i got this idea to add my kid's favorite quail eggs with the croquette.

With the addition of quail eggs in croquette, it was more fun for the kids to enjoy them ^_^
