Simple Baked Quail

8 quail
Salt and black pepper
1 stick of butter

1 cup of water

Season each quail with salt and pepper.

Put in paper sack with flour and toss to coat.

Butter the bottom of an iron skillet or Dutch oven, then place the quail in the skillet.

Pour melted butter over the quail, making sure it covers each one.

Pour water in the bottom of the skillet and place lid on top.

Cook at 300° for about 2 hours 30 minutes, adding more water if needed.

I like the taste of quail. Kids usually like quail because they are small.

Quail are grain fed, very lean, meaty and tasty They are quick to prepare and cook and go well on the BBQ and are great as a treat.

Butterfly Quail
The butterfly quail have had the backbone and rib bones removed and they are very easy to cook on a grill, BBQ or in a fry pan.
One is quite enough for a main course but they are very moorish!

Rosemary and garlic
Chop some garlic and fresh rosemary. Mix it into a little olive oil with some freshly ground pepper. Brush over the quail and season with a little sea salt and grill for about 5 minutes on each side.

Lemon and olive oil
Ten minutes before cooking squeeze some fresh lemon juice over the quail.
When ready to cook brush a little olive oil, some freshly ground salt and pepper. Grill for about 5 minutes on each side.

Whole Quail are quick and easy to roast and don't take long to prepare
One is quite enough for a main course.

Whole Roast Quail
Place a clove of garlic and a sprig of thyme into the cavity of the quail. Drizzle over a little olive oil and season with some salt and pepper.
Roast in a hot oven for 15 -20 minutes.

Roast Quail with prosciutto
Wrap the whole quail with a slice of prosciutto and a couple of sprigs of sage or rosemary on the cavity. Drizzle with a little olive oil and some freshly ground black pepper.
Roast in a hot oven for 15 -20 minutes.
