Impromptu grouse recipe...

Recommended Posts

I normally don't use bacon when cooking ruffed grouse, given its delicate flavor but saw a recipe somewhere on the interweb that caught my attention. I didn't write it down but saw it was marinated grouse wrapped in bacon and drizzled with maple syrup.

I took 2 grouse out of the freezer which equaled 4 breasts off the bone.

Made a simple marinade of soy sauce, some drops of sesame seed oil, sprinkle of dried ginger, a dollop of brown sugar, and a sprinkle of garlic powder. Sorry no measurements, just to taste. (reminiscent of the "Can't lose Woodcock Recipe" marinade.)

Sliced each breast in half lengthwise, then in thirds so 6 pieces per breast. Marinated the thawed meat for a few hours in fridge.

I took some good plain bacon that wasn't hickory smoked or anything, cut each strip in thirds and wrapped each chunk of grouse meat.

Then I drizzled maple syrup over each bacon wrapped piece of meat. I  put it on a grill pan and grilled it until bacon was slightly crisp turning once, served it with white rice and a simple spring mix lettuce salad with olive oil and balsamic vinegar.

This will be a staple now. :)

A meal fit for a King, or Board Administrator by the King of Upland Game birds.

Sounds delicious.
