Farva's Pheasant Nuggets...

So what is a Mom to do with a son and friends who love to hunt--I can't just let them shoot things just for the fun of it--so I guess I will have to cook the game for them. I remember hearing stories of my Uncle John riding with his gun in the combine and bringing home the birds for supper--and have a vivid picture in my mind of a dead bird laying in our front porch--I don't remember eating it--but I was a VERY picky eater as a child--but I digress from my story.
When Josh started to hunt, I told myself that I would learn to COOK the birds for him--I didn't say eat--but I will cook anything he brings home for me--as long as he cleans them and all I have to do is cook it for them to eat.
This weekend his buddies and him had an awesome day of hunting and brought home their limit of birds--so a feast was to be held on Sunday night after church. One cool thing about their hunt is that Josh's free dog is turning out to be a good hunter--and not just all the moles that she kills for me--but points out pheasants for the boys--not bad for a freebie dog!! Now if we could just get her to stop jumping!!
Here is the finished product of all their hard work!!!
Golden brown, delicious--they tell me--pheasant nuggets!!!

...and just like The Field of Dreams....if you cook it--They will come!!! Sometimes there might be a girl or two--but usually just a bunch of guys--eating whatever I put out for them!! Great memories and lots of fun!!

So here it is--Farva's Pheasant Nuggets

6 breasts cut up in nugget size pieces

Soak these for 3-6 hours in a mixture of:

1 cup milk

2 T vinegar

1 egg

garlic powder--to taste

Drain meat and discard marinade. Then shake nuggets in a mixture of:

1 cup flour

1 cup bread crumbs

1 -2 tsp dry thyme

1 tsp. baking powder

seasoned salt and Old Bay seasoning to taste

Then fry in a pan with about 1/2 inch oil. Fry each side about 4-5 minutes or until golden brown. Place on a paper towel to drain.

Serves several hungry boys!!
