Lamb Sausage Stuffed Quail

For my birthday I received a box of semi-boneless quail from Broken Arrow Ranch. We had some guests over so I decided to make something up using food we had on hand. They turned out way better than I expected.

I made a two pound batch of sausage which was enough for 12 quail. I only cooked 8, so I froze the rest of the sausage for next time. I’d estimate about 3oz of sausage per quail.

Lamb Sausage Stuffed Quail

Lamb Cut: Ground




Yield 12 servings


  • 12 semi-boneless quail
  • 2 pounds ground lamb
  • 2 Tbsp salt
  • 2 Tbsp dried sage
  • 1 Tbsp dried ginger
  • 1 Tbsp sugar
  • 1 Tbsp white pepper
  • 1.5 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 cup breadcrumbs


  1. Season the quail with salt and pepper.
  2. Mix all the remaining ingredients in a bowl until well mixed.
  3. Stuff each quail with as much sausage stuffing as it will hold.
  4. Heat your oven to 375°, and heat a large dutch oven with a good amount of butter.
  5. Add the quail to the dutch oven, browning the breasts for about 5 minutes.
  6. Flip the quail, then move the dutch oven to the oven (without the lid). Bake for 15-20 minutes, until the sausage is fully cooked.
