  • Summary

    This is a basic roast quail recipe that can serve as a stepping stone for other, fancier recipes. Once you know how to properly roast a quail, you can then play with glazes or marinades -- even though I am not normally a fan of marinades, they will work with quail because the birds are so small.

    Ingredients

    • 4 whole plucked quail
    • Lard, butter or olive oil
