Gumbo- a classic southern meal. But have you made it with quail? Try this Quail and Sausage gumbo!

Quail and Sausage Gumbo:

  • 3/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 cup bleached all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups chopped yellow onions
  • 1 cup seeded and chopped green bell peppers
  • 1/2 cup chopped celery
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne
  • 3 bay leaves
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 4 quail, about 3 1/2 ounces each, breastbones removed
  • Creole seasoning
  • 8 cups chicken stock
  • 1 pound smoked sausage, cut crosswise into 1/4-inch-thick slices
  • 1/2 cup chopped green onions (scallions), green parts only
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh parsley leaves
  • Steamed white rice, for serving


Combine the oil and flour in a large nonstick saucepan over medium heat. Cook, stirring constantly, until the roux mixture is dark brown, the color of chocolate, 30 to 35 minutes.

Add the onions, peppers, celery, salt, cayenne, bay leaves, and garlic. Cook the vegetables, stirring often, until they are soft and tender, about 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, heat oil in a large nonstick skillet. Season quail with creole seasoning. When the oil is heated, brown the quail on all sides and remove from the pan.

Add the stock, quail, and sausage to the pan with the vegetables. Bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce the heat to medium-low, and simmer, uncovered, until the quail are very tender, about 1 hour.

Skim off any fat that rises to the surfaceand discard. Remove the bay leaves. Stir in the green onions and parsley. Serve immediately in shallow soup bowls over steamed white rice.
