"This is for 4 grouse breasts, cut in half. Prep time does not include the refrigerator time. It seems like too much bake time, but it's not. We have sharp- tailed grouse here, which is more gamey tasting than some. The milk really helps a lot. Most people around here do that part."

Step 1

In a gallon storage or freezer bag, place the 8 grouse breast halves and the 2 cups of milk. Seal the bag and place in the refrigerator for 24 hours.

Step 2

The next day when you're ready to cook, heat the oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit.

Step 3

In a large skillet, fry the 16 pieces of bacon on medium heat until they are cooked, but not crispy. Set the bacon aside.

Step 4

Place the grouse in the same pan; browning for 2 minutes per side.

Step 5

Remove the grouse and wrap two pieces of bacon around each breast half. Keep it together with toothpicks.

Step 6

Pour the bacon drippings from the pan into a baking dish, preferably enough to cover the bottom. Place the grouse in next. Then add the rest of the ingredients.

Step 7

Roast 45 minutes uncovered.
