Default Ground Pheasant

Anybody ever grind pheasant into burger, for spaghetti, lasagna, tacos, etc?

I'm assuming it'll be somewhat dry?

Someone mentioned it on another post. I tried it and it's great. Grind it, spice it up, and add some cooking oil so it's not dry (you could use fat too). I put it in large pepper halves then put them on the grill. Very good! Give it a try I think you'll like it.

Can't be much drier that ground turkey. Try throwing it through the grinder with some pork fat, just to moisten it up a bit.

i agree, need a little pork. I actually made some bratwurst that were pretty good with pheasant and pork. Ground up some turkey and ate in patties but did not trip my trigger. Can i say that?

Smile Pheasant Sausage

A few months ago I picked up on a tip by Ironwires to make pheasant sausage. He's got a thread on here somewhere about it. I did some research on grinders and found an electric grinder on sale at Gander Mtn. I bought a couple of different breakfast sausage seasoning packages, plus found a few recipes on the internet. I made 4 different blends of breakfast sausage and a pheasant burger patty. I typically added in about 1 part bacon to 4 parts bird, and it is still a little dry at that ration. Bacon was easier to find than pork fat, and I can always use what's left over.

This experiment was in response to my wife not caring for the other pheasant cooking recipes we have tried. Plus, it sure created a lot more room in my freezer. I ground up pheasants, doves, and chukar--all bleneded together.

I've been very happy with the results so far. Send me a PM if you want any more details on the recipes or the grinder I found.

Worried about eating your game birds, and the wife approving? Just follow the Reame's egg noodle recipe, substituting chicken for your birds, and you're good to go.

I made some pheasant Italian sausage using pork fat, it was superb. I asked the butcher at the grocery store if he had any pork leftovers he gave me the fat from some rib cuts for pretty much nothing.

I used the meat grinder tool for the wife's kitchen aid mixer. Picked up both the grinder and the sausage maker tools for the kitchen aid pretty cheap, it was a lot less expensive than buying the standalone meat grinder.
