    I'm about to cull some extra boys right now...I like mine wrapped in bacon on the grill. [​IMG] They're also good fried or in mushroom gravy.

    Roasted Quail

    1-2 per person.

    Per 2 quail:

    3 tbsp shreaded Cheese (I perfer Havarti or apple smoked gouda, hubby likes with a creamy blue cheese, both work equally well)

    Finely minced apple about 1/4th inch cubes, 1/2 tsp

    Almonds, slivered, 1/2 tsp

    In a bowl mix your cheese, nuts, & apple stuffing. stuff into the cavity of cleaned quail.

    Wrap each quail in a thin wrapping of salt pork (processing quail often rips the skin off, so the salt pork adds moistness and fat you loose without the skin.

    Put the quail into a 400 degree oven for 5 minutes (to crisp up the salt pork, then drop the temp to 325 and finish another 10-15 mins, untill the thermomoter says 160.

    Pull from heat, let rest say 5 mins while tossing the salad.

    I wrap the quail breast with a couple pieces of salt pork or bacon and throw on the grill.....

    2nd fav way is to line them all up in a baking pan, lay the bacon over the breast, put a piece of swiss cheese over them then cover everything with cream of mushroom soup and bake for 40 minutes at 375 [​IMG]










    ps. saddina, i know cream of mushroom is pretty close to gravy.... and yes you can substitute gravy for that [​IMG] brat childe [​IMG]
