This elegant roasted quail gets rich flavor from a nutty cranberry-orange stuffing, orange basting sauce, and cranberry glaze.  

How to Make It

Step 1

Cook cranberry juice and sugar in a saucepan over medium heat, stirring constantly, 25 minutes or until sugar melts and mixture thickens. Add cranberries and orange rind; cook, stirring constantly, 2 minutes or until cranberries pop. Remove cranberry glaze from heat; let cool.

Step 2

Stir together orange juice and melted butter.

Step 3

Spoon about 1/4 cup Cranberry-Orange-Pecan Stuffing into each quail, and tie legs together with string. Sprinkle with salt and pepper; place in a shallow roasting pan. Brush with orange juice mixture.

Step 4

Bake at 325° for 1 hour, basting quail with orange juice mixture every 15 minutes. Broil 5 1/2 inches from heat 3 to 4 minutes or until golden, if necessary. Serve with cranberry glaze. Garnish, if desired min.
