Stuffed quail are an absolute necessity to get us through the winter months. As a matter of fact, there are times of the year I don’t want to cook anything. Luckily, I don’t have to. This recipe is so easy you can do it in the crockpot, and it’s so easy you can do it in the microwave.
The dish has a lovely flavor and texture, and tastes exactly like a quail stuffed with a creamy sauce. It’s like a quail stuffed eggplant, except that they are quail and its stuffed with a creamy cheese sauce. I would call it “cheese quail.
Another thing I like about this dish is that the quail are cooked in the oven with the skin on, rather than having them cooked on a stove. This allows them to be more tender and not dry out. Also, the skin on makes them less likely to fall apart when cooked.
Personally I think quail should be stuffed and cooked on a stove, because they are far more tender. But I’m flexible on that.
I have been known to make quail stuffed with bacon for a sort of’meatball’ quail.
I would like to see stuffed quail stuffed with bacon, or quail stuffed with turkey, or quail stuffed with ham. Either way would be fantastic.
You can cook a stuffed quail on a stove as well, but it’s not the same. The skin on a quail is more tough than it is on a chicken. But I think you can still get some fun with it. I did a recipe for quail stuffed with bacon a few years ago and it was pretty great.
I think that quail stuffed with bacon in particular is a great idea. I’ve never tried it, but I think it would be awesome.
A quick tip I read in a quail-filled blog is to leave the wings on and cook them up in the oven. I always cut the wings off first and turn them over. I find it easier to cut off the wings before cooking them, but whatever.
I don’t know the best way to cook it, but I think it’s best to cook it in the oven. I don’t know if you can get it perfectly browned, but the first time I cooked one, it was a little on the dry side, so it would be best to cook them in the oven instead of in the frying pan.
