I've lived in the Midwest for less than two years and recently took up squirrel hunting. My wife has tried a couple different recipes that haven't turned out so good. Anyone have any good squirrel recipes you care to share with us? We'd sure appreciate it as I'm really enjoying the hunting part of it! Thanks!

Take squirrel cut into pcs season (Emeral Essense or what ever you like) brown in skillet.Put in crock pot cover w/chicken broth or even water, cook untill meat falls off the bone. Usually 6-8 hrs. takr out squirrels, save liquid remove meat from bones set aside. Put a package of mixed vegi's in crock pot with meat. Now you can either make your own gravy or use boughten, adding the saved liquid to thin to suit you. Put this in pot with meat and vegi's. Cook 2hrs or untill vegi's are done. Serve over hot bisuits. I'm getting hungry I got to go.

flour and season with your favorite fried chicken seasoning .Brown quickly in shortening.
Place in dutch oven on a rack to keep them off the bottom of the pan . Put a small amout of water in bottom of pan ( approx 1/4 inch). Put in oven @ 225-250 for 2 hours .

even an old tough skwerl will be falling off the bone tender and finger likin good !

(also be sure to soak cut up skwerls in salt water overnight and peal off as much membrane and fat as you can before cooking.)

I sort the squirrels into fryers and skewers.
The young ones fry like chicken.
Older ones cut into quarters . Put in crock pot with cream of mushroom soup and water. Cook till falling off bone, remove bones.
Add dumplings.

Young Squirrels, fry like chicken. Tougher/older squirrels, soak in buttermilk overnight then fry like chicken. The buttermilk will help tenderize the meat.

Like has been said, fry the little ones.

Quarter squirrels and brown in a cast iron pot over high heat with just a little oil. Add just a little water (not enough to cover), place the lid on top, reduce heat and cook for 3 hours. At 3 hours add chopped onioins, potatoes, salt and pepper and simmer one more hour. Serve over rice.

I've done this with bigger fox squirrels:

Cut up 1-2 squirrels and put in crock pot with a can of Cream of Mushroom Soup and enough water to cover the pieces. Takes half a day or when meat falls off the bones.

Cook in a crockpot overnight with a little water and whatever spices you want. I usually throw in a little onion, garlic, and salt and pepper. Let it cook all night. In the morning pull the meat off the bones and brown in skillet with a little grease. Fry up some eggs and eat.
