It's not hard to put a dang good meal on your table for your family that is good for them.

We had oven baked squirrel tonight with corn and potatoes grown right in our garden.

You don't have to be fancy with this. I used chicken broth I made from a chicken I cooked a week or two ago, salt and pepper, and that's about it.

Slow cooked the squirrel at 225 almost all day, and then did the basics for the corn and mashed red potatoes.

Give it a try, your taste buds will thank you!

Squirrel all cleaned up in it's broth bath ready to go.



Out of the oven and ready to serve. Be carefull it will be falling apart.



One squirrel per person please. (you can get seconds later, if there is any)



Keep your hands off my plate, or they will be bare bones!

What kind of spices go with squirrel?

Can you marinate the squirrel?
I use the basics on squirrel, salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, unless I'm following a new recipe. Squirrel can be used in a lot of meals that you would use chicken, and no it doesn't taste like chicken.

I've personally never marinated squirrel, although I'm sure you could. The biggest thing with cooking it is to go low and slow. Cooking squirrel over high heat or too fast will result in meat that is dry and tough as leather.
