    what is your favorite childhood wild game recipe?

  • #2
    Once when I was 4, my dad and I watched some hunters walk a field, they didn't think there was any rabbits, but we saw some running behind the hunters. After they left, my dad shot one with a .22. He fried it up and I was so excited. It was and old rabbit and really tough. I sat at the table chewing one piece of meat for a half hour. My dad finally noticed and told me to spit it out. It took me an hour to finish the rabbit, but it was the best thing I'd ever had.

      Inner loins- butter, salt & pepper and a cast-iron pan With some brown and serve rolls. Reminds me of dad taking me with him to drag his deer out after he'd shoot it, when I was a little fella. We'd always break out the fry pan as soon as we were washed up, and he'd tell me about his hunt.

        As we would be processing the deer, the heart and liver would be cooking on the stove in an iron skillet.

        Another favorite is squirrel stew. One squirrel, add some of everything else you have plus a little spice. Put in a crock pot on low and come back in 6 or 8 hours.

            Ground-up back strap and gravy over Hot Corn bread and grits, then off to the Barn and start Milking the Cows.

              Oven roasted wild turkey at Thanksgiving. Yum! It's still way up there on my list.

                Back in the late 50's, we only had canned milk in camp.
                My dad would cut loin up in half dollar sized discs, roll them in flour and brown them. He then made a gravy in the bottom of a cast iron pot, returned the meat, covered to pot and simmered until the biscuits got done.
                Fries and pork 'n beans completed the meal. I'm not so sure that helping grampa clean up after the meal wasn't just as much fun! LOL!

                  My favortie game meal was always rabbit potpie, but if we are talking fish too I loved it when we would catch a mess of blue gills and croppie and fry them up at camp.

                    My favorite had to be any jerky from wild game but for a meal I would have to say pheasant and dumplings.

                        Pan fried deer cubed steak, mashed potatoes, black eyed peas, biscuits, and the absolute best homemade gravy. Probably still my favorite. Brings back a lot of memories of deer camp when I was a kid.

                          Hossenfeffer. I think I liked the name equally as much as the dish itself. But, it was a big deal when my Dad and the beagle came home with a couple rabbits and my Mom would make Hossenfeffer just like Elmer Fudd did in the Buggs Bunny cartoon.

                            never ate wild game as a kid...dad didnt do any hunting around the house, all of his expeditions were on sheep hunts, a brown bear hunt, and he went to Africa for a plains game safari. so i never started eating wild game until i was older. mom doesnt like the taste of wild animals for some reason, so she rarely cooks the stuff.

                            my favorite game recipe now is my venison chili i make on occasion. i wont share any secrets, but it took quite a few batches of experimentation before i got it perfect.
