Bill Thompson, Cavendish Game Birds, sells quail filled with breadcrumb stuffing and this butter spread on top. When you cook the bird in the oven, the butter melts, the bird sizzles, and the smoky notes fill the air.
8 Tablespoons of butter (1 stick)
2 Tablespoons Smoked Maple Syrup
Let butter soften enough to mix with Smoked Maple Syrup. It takes a little elbow grease to get it whipped together. Chill until ready to use.
