* Heat the oven to 400F/200C/Gas 6
* For the filling mix all the the ingredients except the quail's eggs in a large bowl, seasoning well to taste.
* Roll out the pastry on a lightly floured surface and cut 12 x 4"/9cm rounds to fit a 12-hole muffin tin, and 12 x 3"/7cm rounds for the lids.
* Carefully press the larger rounds into the holes of the muffin tin. Half fill each with the pork filling, top with a soft-boiled quail's egg or 1/2 reg egg then add another layer of filling.
* Brush the edges of each pie with a little egg and then place a lid on top, pressing the edges together to seal.
* Make a hole in the top of each pie, brush the tops with egg to glaze and bake for 20 minutes. Reduce the oven temperature to 325F/160C/Gas 3 and cook for a further 25-30 minutes until the pastry is golden and the filling is cooked through.
* Leave to cool in the tin for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
