My favorite way to eat the younger ones like that is to cut them up, coat them with whatever seasonings you like and fry them for a few minutes on each side until they are golden brown, just like you'd make fried squirrel. I give mine a hefty coating of garlic powder, onion powder, salt, pepper and cajun spice, but like I said, use whatever spices that you like. Whenever I fry bacon for breakfast, which is way to often according to my doctor
, I save the bacon fat and I keep it frozen in the freezer. Then, whenever I fry up some wild game I will add some bacon fat to the frying oil so that it imparts that wonderful bacon taste into the fried game meat. The bacon fat is of course optional if you are concerned about the fat/cholesterol issue.
Another favorite g-hog recipe of mine is g-hog pot roast. Use whatever pot roast recipe you use for beef... just substitute the g-hog. Just recently I was shopping in the local supermarket and found one of those "cook in a bag" products. You know the ones I mean ? They come with a pre-packaged spice package and a plastic bag. You add the vegetables and the meat, coat them with the spices provided in the packet, throw everything into the oven proof plastic bag and then put the bag into the oven and bake according to the directions. They had one for "Beef Stew" in a bag and one for "Pot Roast" in a bag. I had used the beef stew one several times for venison so I thought I'd give the pot roast one a try using the g-hog meat. I have to tell you,, it came out absolutely fantastic. All I did was cut up the g-hog just like you were going to fry it, then I seasoned it, broiled it for a few minutes in the broiler so it was browned on both sides..... popped all the meat into the plastic bag along with the vegetables, poured in the seasoning, gave it a few shakes to coat everything, then baked it according to the directions. The end result was every bit as good as the normal pot roast recipe I normally use,,, except using the bag/kit was 1/2 the work.
Anyway, hope this helps ya out... at least you have 2 dinner options to choose from.
