    White sugar's Note:

    I found this recipe in the "Australian Women's Weekly - French Cooking Made Easy" cookbook. The stuffing and seasoning sounds really delicious and the whole dish looks quite posh. I plan on trying it for my next dinner party. The description in the book is as follows: Quail are quite easy to bone out, especially if you use a scalpel or a small sharp pointed knife. Boning out and seasoning can be done the day before cooking; keep covered in refrigerator. The seasoned uncooked quail can be frozen for up to 2 weeks, thaw overnight in refrigerator before cooking. This recipe is not suitable to microwave.
