    The Shameless Carnivore: A Manifesto For Meat Lovers includes recipes including Quailsadillas.

    For quesadillas

    Buy a package of six flour tortillas

    Buy a package of four semi-boneless birds the day before you're going to cook them

    Recipe

    Wash each bird, pat it dry, season with salt and pepper and toss onto a hot grill until they are of almost medium doneness.

    Let them rest for a few minutes so they kept their juices.

    Tossed into the fridge overnight to chill.

    Cook birds until done

    After cooking, pick meat from the bones

    Toss a tortilla on a heated skillet, liberally apply the quail meat and cheese, like Monterey Jack, and jalapeños, if desired.

    Add ingredients to your liking. Add a little chopped cilantro and a splash of lime juice. Top with a second tortilla.

    Repeat process for additional Quailsadillas.

    Slice into quarters. Arrange on a serving plate.

    Add sour cream and salsa for dipping.
