Btw the wife refuses to help,lol , so its on me, the simpler the recipe the better. I remember my uncle putting the meat in a sack of seasonings and just shake, then pantry. Was pretty good but gamey
I found this recipe makes them pretty tasty.
1/3 cup water
1 cup Buffalo wing sauce
2 cups self-rising flour
1 teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon Salt
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
3 to 4 squirrels, quartered
Soak your squirrel pieces overnight in a salt water and meat tenderizer brine.
Heat the oil to 350 degrees.
Combine the flour, salt, pepper, and garlic powder in a bowl and set aside. In another bowl, combine the eggs and water and mix well. Slowly pour the Buffalo wing sauce into the egg mixture and continue to mix well.
Dip the squirrel quarters in the egg mixture and the roll well in the flour mix. Fry the squirrel in the oil for about 10-15 minutes until golden and crispy. Serves about 4 people.
