We don't eat fried so I can't help with that but maybe you might want to try this for something different, Good luck and let us know:
Squirrel (Rabbit) Stroganoff-style
6-7 slices bacon, diced
2 squirrels (1 rabbit) cut into serving pieces
3/4 cup flour
2 1/2 tsp dry mustard
1 1/2 tsp thyme
1/2 tsp pepper
1 1/2 tsp salt
3/4 cup chicken broth
1 large onion, diced
4 oz mushrooms, sliced
1 tablespoon butter
2 cups sour cream
handful of grapes, halved
1/4 cup sherry
Fry bacon until crisp and set aside.
Roll meat pieces in the flour mixed with herbs/spices, using all
of the flour mixture if possible, and brown meat over medium heat.
Takes about 15 minutes to do this.
Add the chicken broth, cover and simmer until the saddle pieces
seem tender (15 minutes)
While the meat is simmering, saut\xe9 the onion and then the
mushrooms in butter and set aside.
When done, remove the meat temporarily and stir in the sour cream,
grapes, onion and mushrooms. Make sure the sour cream melds with
the other ingredients and if necessary, add a bit of hot water.
Simmer for 5 minutes but do not let it boil.
Now stir in the sherry, add bacon and meat and simmer just until
the meat is heated again. Garnish with parsley.
