Fried quail with country milk gravy and buttermilk mashed potatoes

  • 8 (4 ounce) whole quail, boneless, rinsed and patted dry
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tablespoon dry Sherry
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil, plus 1 tablespoons
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 tablespoons creole seasoning
  • 1/3 cup chopped yellow onions
  • 1 3/4 cups whole milk
  • 2 tablespoons chopped green onions
  • 1 tablespoon chopped garlic
  • 2 tablespoons chopped parsley
  • Buttermilk Mashed Potatoes
  • 1 pound asparagus, cleaned and steamed


In a large bowl, toss the quail with the Worcestershire, Sherry, salt, and pepper.

Heat 1 tablespoon oil to 3250. in a large cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat.

In a shallow bowl, combine the flour with the creole seasoning. One at a time, roll the quail in the flour, shaking to remove any excess. Reserve excess flour.

Fry in batches until golden brown and cooked through, turning once, 3 to 4 minutes per side. Remove and drain on paper towels. Pour off all oil and wipe out pan with a clean towel.

To make the milk pan gravy, add 1 tablespoon vegetable oil to the skillet and heat. Add the onions and cook, over medium-high heat, until soft. Add 1 1/2 tablespoons of the remaining flour and cook, stirring, for 2 minutes. Add the milk and cook, stirring constantly, until thickened, 5 to 6 minutes. Add 2 green onions, garlic, and parsley and cook for 1 minute. Remove from the heat.

To serve, spoon the mashed potatoes into the center of 4 large plates, top with 2 quail and the pan gravy, and serve with asparagus.

Buttermilk Mashed Potatoes:

  • 2 pounds baking potatoes, like russets, peeled and cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper


Combine the potatoes and 1 teaspoon salt in a medium pot cover with water by 1-inch and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer uncovered until potatoes are fork tender, about 15 minutes and then drain

Return the potatoes to the pot over medium-low heat. Add the buttermilk, butter, remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt, and black pepper and mash with a potato masher or heavy fork until fluffy, about 4 minutes. Remove from heat and adjust seasoning, to taste. Serve immediately.

Yield: 4 cups
