Shake-n-Bake Squirrel


2 to 4 squirrels

1 pkg. barbecue-flavor Shake ‘n Bake mix

Cut squirrels into 5 pieces each: 2 front legs,
2 back legs, and back. If squirrels are large or old, cover with water in saucepan and heat to boiling; boil 10 to 15 minutes, then drain well.
If squirrels are young, boiling is not necessary; simply rinse young squirrel pieces in cold water.

Place moist squirrel pieces in shaker bag from baking mix. Add mix and shake to coat. Arrange pieces in single layer on baking sheet. Bake at 425° F for 30 to 35 minutes, or until crispy. The squirrel will be very tender and tasty.
