Delicious Little Quails


My hard-working boyfriend will be visiting me tomorrow, and I know he’s been itching to try some quail.

My last hatch was about 55% males and so today the extras had to go. They will no longer be calling out for pumpkin pie, as I like to interpret the Coturnix crow. I also have fresh rabbit and Muscovy duck breast resting in the fridge so I’m hoping to satisfy some gustatory lustfulness this trip. I hope he’s hungry! I’m not too worried…

With quail this fresh, it’s hard to do much more than add salt and fresh pepper and saute in butter. The taste is like juicy, tender filet mignon wrapped in bacon with just a touch of gaminess. I know someone’s mouth will be watering as they read this, see you tomorrow Stew!
