Tips and variations
For a variation on this recipe, try other types of mushrooms such as porcini for a richer flavor. You can also replace the bread crumbs with chestnuts for an autumnal stuffing.
Don’t hesitate to add Provence herbs, thyme or rosemary which go wonderfully with the taste of the quails. And if you want a crispy touch, remember to run a beaten egg over the quails before putting them in the oven: you will obtain an absolutely delicious golden crust.
