  • About

Use older birds for casseroling and have them plucked and drawn. Towards the end of the year there is usually plenty of game available for this kind of recipe.

Ingredients

  • 3 partridges
  • 100 g/4 oz streaky bacon rashers

Method

Wipe over the partridges and set aside. Trim and dice the streaky bacon and, reserving half, heat the remainder in a heavy flameproof casserole until the fat runs. Add the partridges and brown all over. Peel the button onions, leaving them whole. Trim the mushrooms, leaving them whole, and reserve any stalks. Draw the casserole off the heat and add the button onions, mushrooms and bouquet garni
