Preheat the oven to 400?F.
Lay the quail, skin side down, on a work surface. Season with the rub. Divide the corn bread dressing into 8 equal portions and shape into balls. Place a ball in the center of each quail and bring the sides of the birds together to overlap.
Place the quail, breast side up, in lightly buttered baking pan and bake for 25 to 30 minutes, or until crispy and brown.
