Wild Game Recipes: Hush Puppy Quail

GON Staff | June 5, 2014

If you have some quail in the freezer, get out the cooker and try this recipe. This recipe works great with dove, too.

What You’ll Need:
cleaned and dressed quail
pepper jack cheese
beaten eggs

First, boil quail for three minutes in a pot of water. Debone the birds. Place a small slice of pepper jack cheese on a piece of boneless quail, wrap in a slice of bacon and toothpick the whole thing together. Dip the bird/cheese/bacon in beaten eggs, then in breadcrumbs. Dip in eggs and breadcrumbs a second time, drop in hot oil and fry to golden brown. Be cautioned that the cheese should not melt out of the quail when you are cooking. If cheese begins to come out, you have cooked it too long.
