Tiny quail make elegant alternatives to chicken when entertaining. Each guest is presented with their very own bird, and the flavor is a bit more pronounced and gamey. Here, lemon is tucked into the cavity of each quail, which is then wrapped in a slice of bacon, sprinkled with thyme, and drizzled with olive oil before roasting in the oven. Their served with lovely beet pancakes, the beets taking the place of the usual potatoes. You'll need to roast the beets and peel them, then mash before mixing in the pancake batter.
