rabbit, squirrel or deer. brown in butter in the skillet, take the meat off the bones and put into a casserole dish with cream of mushroom soup, milk, onion, potatoes ect. and bake at 350 until the potatoes are done.

Wald, my favorite way to eat squirrels, as well as rabbits is as follows. Separate them into six pieced, the legs and the back cut in half with the ribs removed. In a pot of salted water add 3 carrots cut in half, two pieces of celery cut in half, a medium onion cut in half and a table spoon of black pepper corns and the meat. Bring to boil and cut back to simmer. Simmer until a large cooking fork passes easily through the thigh, then remove from the pot and lay on paper towels. While the meat is simmering a froth will appear on top, skim it off every time it appears. Now take a bowl and put in flour, salt and pepper according to your taste. In a skillet put some bacon fat, I save it once hunting season starts and keep it in the fridge, and some butter and heat the skillet. Dredge the meat in the flour and put in the skillet and fry until brown on both sides. You don't have to do more than get it a nice chestnut brown because it is already done. Then serve. It will be white and moist inside with a nice tasty crisp crust. I usually serve with mashed potatoes. I have just made myself hungry.

Wouldn't it be easier to use a bowl? Sounds good otherwise, Thanks
