Preparing / Cooking Grouse and Ptarmigan
Grouse and ptarmigan can be prepared many ways. They can be grilled, fried, baked, or slow cooked in a crock pot. If you’re interested in grilling, marinade the breasts and thighs in your favorite marinade for 24 hours. Slowly cook the breasts on a medium heat grill to avoid overcooking and drying out the meat. Fried grouse or ptarmigan can be very good. Prepare the breasts and thighs like fried chicken. An all time favorite for many hunters is a slow cooked game bird in a crock pot with cream of mushroom soup. With a game bird that is not too damaged, baking the whole bird can offer a nice entrée presentation and can mimic Cornish game hens. This is particularly nice with ruffed grouse.
