    Last night my friend gave me some lovely quail her husband brought back from a hunting farm in South Georgia. I've never prepared quail before, and seeing as how they are so lean I'm sure they could do with a bacon wrap. Almost all the online sites want me to stuff the birds with cream cheese and jalapeno. Are they so strong, that they need a pepper to help mask the flavor? I was hoping to roast them in the oven, or maybe grill them. I know y'all have some great quail recipes, so lets go! BTW, they are frozen, so I'm not in a huge hurry to use them.

    The best way is to dredge them in flour and fry them. Split in half if you like so you can do it in just an inch or so of grease.
