    (not mine, but good nevertheless).

    Quail Stuffed with Wild Mushrooms

    4 large quail
    1 tbsp of olive oil
    2 onions, diced
    2 cups of breadcrumbs
    2 cups of wild mushrooms, sliced
    Salt and freshly-ground black pepper
    2 tbsp of thyme, chopped
    2 tbsp of parsley, chopped
    1/2 cup of clarified butter

    * Preheat oven to 350 F.
    * Debone the quail from the back, leaving the bird whole.
    * In a heavy-bottomed frying pan, heat the olive oil over a medium heat.
    * Add the onion and cook until caramelized and brown, about 15 mins.
    * Add sliced mushrooms and cook for 1 more minute.
    * Remove the pan from the heat and add stir the breadcrumbs, season to taste with salt and pepper.
    * Lay the birds out flat and divide the stuffing equally between 4 quail, putting the mixture in the middle of flattened bird. Top with chopped herbs.
    * Re-form the quail to their original shape, then place them in a tin foil nest to maintain the shape and brush with clarified butter.
    * Place in the oven and bake for 20 mins.
