Buttermilk Fried Grouse


  • Grouse
  • 1 cup of buttermilk
  • 2 tablespoons of hot sauce (I like to use Crystal Hot Sauce)
  • 1 tsp of seasoned salt (like a lawry’s or your favorite brand)
  • 1/2 cup of flour
  • 1/2 tsp seasoned salt
  • Oil for frying

Mix the buttermilk, hot sauce and seasoned salt together and soak the grouse for at least an hour and up to overnight. Then mix together the flour and seasoned salt and dredge the grouse in the flour mixture until the grouse is completely coated. Set the grouse aside for about 5 minutes to let the breading stick to the grouse then fry in oil over a medium high burner for 4 minutes per side. This is super easy and wonderfully delicious.
