“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.”
