Simple But Stunning

Last January, I had the opportunity to go pheasant hunting. I managed to bring home three sets of breast meat. Here I was this morning thinking all had been eaten. But when I reached in the freezer to pull out a frozen chicken breast, I pulled out a pheasant breast instead!

Now, I suspect there are approximately one million ways to cook a pheasant, but I chose what is the best way, or so I have been told.

After cutting the breast fillets away from the keel, coat them with flour. Add liberal amounts of salt and pepper and pan fry in butter.

A third grader can do it.

There is a chance I will be doing more pheasant hunting this winter. I look forward to trying more recipes. I will keep you posted.

I'd like for you to have me over for dinner when you have duck or pheasant! We'll leave the herbivore at home.

Deal. I will keep you posted.

Or, he can come over too and I can prepare some SpaghettiOs for him. Without meatballs, of course...

I think you need to go grouse hunting next. It's MUCH better tasting meat. So much so it would be shameful to fry it. Yummy!

Rachel,

I assume you have a place? Let me know!
