Default Dove

Anyone have any suggestions on the best way to clean and cook dove? The season starts in only 2 weeks and I hope to have enough to invite a a few friends. I will have plenty of other things to eat just in case I mess up the birds. thanks

Certainly one of our favorites... and so easy to prepare; breast them (extremely easy -the skin peels as easily as a rabbits'), season them, wrapeach halfin bacon and throw them on the grill. Bon Appetit!

Creamy Doves
12 dove breasts
2 cans mushroom soup
1/2 lb. Mushrooms, sliced
1 onion, chopped
2 Tbs. sage
Butter

Place enough water to cover breasts in a large pot along with the sage. Bring to a rolling boil. Remove from heat; add the breasts and cover. Allow to stand for 8-10 minutes. Remove breasts from water and rub with butter, salt and pepper to taste. Arrange breasts in a shallow baking dish; add the mushrooms, onion and mushroom soup. Cover and bake at 350 until breasts are tender approx. 30 minutes.

duckhunter669 - just slice the peppers thin and insert between the bacon strips and dove?

Bigbuy01 - THAT recipe sounds dynamite (we still have some dried morels from Spring in the freezer, too!) - hope we get enough this season to try it!

I was going to say the same thing. We cook ours over a open mesquite fire. There is nothing better than hunting them all day and then stand around the campfire eating them and drinking a few cold beers.

Mine is alot like BG01's, except I make a stuffing and add all the above to it. Oh, and one last thing. After cooking for 30 minutes, I let it cool down so I dont burn my fingers while I throw those nasty breasts away and eat the stuffing. Cant stand dove.

I breast mine, that's where you slip a thumb under the breast bone,the area near the legs not the head,and pull it away from the rest of the bird. All that's left is to cut or twist the wings off.

As for cooking, I fry mine in butter and top them with garlic podwer or garlic salt. YUM YUM!
