If you enjoy the taste of wild game as I do, and don't want to alter the taste of the meat too much except to put a nice coating on it here it is. Just the basics for the home or the camp.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Remove legs from body of dressed rabbit or squirrel.
  2. Split the body down the back through the breast.
  3. Cut each half in two crosswise.
  4. Dip meat pieces in melted butter.
  5. Roll pieces into crushed corn flakes coating all around.
  6. Brown meat in hot oil on each side.
  7. Reduce heat to low and simmer for about 1 hour.
  8. Note: Some people like to soak the meat in salted water a few hours before cooking.
  9. If so cover the body with water in a pot and add 3 Tablespoons of salt.
  10. Then drain, rinse, and pat the body dry before cooking.
  11. I often do this especially if the animal appears to be old.

Don't let the the hair touch the meat. This will prevent a really gamey taste.
