Preheat oven to 425°F. Place bags of rice and gumbo in boiling water. Once water has returned to a boil, reduce heat to a simmer. Hold bags at a simmer for 20 minutes to heat thoroughly. Stirring to separate the bags during the heating process should be done with a smooth edged plastic or wooden spoon. Sharp objects and metal tongs may puncture bags. Always use extreme care when removing bags from boiling water to avoid burns. Place stuffed quail on lightly greased sheet pan and bake for 22-25 minutes, or until stuffing reaches temperature of 165°F and the juices run clear.
The foods in this package contain shellfish, fish, sulfites, milk, eggs, wheat/gluten.
