Honey Quail Recipe For Drunks

Even a drunk bachelor can make haute cuisine once in a while. Particularly if he has an easy recipe that doesn’t cost too much.

This one is good because it seems all fancy smancy but really requires roughly 30 minutes of your time.

Of course, you’ll have to go to a decent butcher shop, but I think most of you live in cities that are big enough to support them.

The main thing to keep in mind with this, my Honey Quail recipe, is not to over purchase. Quails look tiny, but their meat is really rich. Most big guys are full after eating two of them. Most sane people are good after one or one and a half.

Anyway, this recipe assumes you are cooking for yourself and a date.

HONEY QUAIL

Step One: Purchase four fresh quails, a jar of mustard, butter, a jar of honey and boil in bag rice.

Step Two: Put a stick of butter in a small pot. Then pour most of a jar of mustard in the pot. Then squeeze the honey about six or seven times into the pot.

Step Three: Put the pot on low heat and stir the honey and mustard and butter together while it melts.

Step Four: Turn the knob on your oven about two thirds of the way around.

Step Five: Use a spoon to ladle honey mustard sauce over the quails until you have them covered. This should use roughly half the honey mustard.

Step Six: Cook rice.

Step Seven: Put the quails in the oven for 15 minutes.

Step Eight: When rice is done, mix the rest of the honey mustard into the rice.

Step Nine: Eat.
