Cooking & Serving
Cooking Methods: Roast, Pan-Roast, Braise, Grill
Cooking Tips: Quail is versatile and will take all types of seasoning and marinades well. After seasoning, whole quail are easy to stuff and pair wonderfully with bread, grain, or sausage stuffing. Stuffed birds need to be cooked slightly longer than unstuffed. Be careful not to overcook. If using a dry heat method, like roasting, pan-roasting, or grilling, cook quickly until meat is slightly firm to the touch and juices run clear. Basting or brushing with fat will help keep the quail moist.
