Oh my gosh! My brother told me how to make this years ago and asked if I would make it for him. We had cleaned some fresh quail and his wife was out of town. I did and was instantly hooked on this meal. We had this like every night for a week and at least once a week after due to the fact we raised quail on the farm at the time.

  2. Cut each quail in half down the back.

A really good recipe. My lady cannot eat mushrooms, so I subbed cream of celery. Also added a little paprika. She loved it. Thought the pepper and onion amounts were fine. Thanks

I'm rating this a 5 because we liked it and I think it's a good recipe to try however we would change a couple things next time. I did cut the salt to a 1/2 tsp. but might leave it out because of the sodium in the soup and bacon. The onion and black pepper were too strong for us so I'd cut that to 1/2 the amount next time. I will definitely make again. Thanks.
