  • Preheat the oven to 200°C. Fill each quail with the mushroom mixture and place them in a baking dish. Brush the quails with melted butter and bake halfway up for 25 minutes.
  • Dietary recipe

    This dish provides approximately 400 calories per serving. The proteins in the quails and mushrooms are offset by the carbohydrates in the bread. Butter used for cooking increases the fat content, but it can be substituted with olive oil for a healthier meal.

    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. Remember Baking is a matter of personal preference, so feel free to adjust the cooking time to your liking. Enjoy your food !
