Grilled Pheasant

Ingredients:

  • Pheasant breasts, cut into 3 pieces
  • Jalapeno slices
  • 1 purple onion, sliced
  • Bacon slices
  • Italian dressing, recipe below

Directions:

Cut the fillet into 3 semi-equal pieces. Put a slice of jalapeno and a slice of purple onion between 2 pieces of the pheasant. Wrap in bacon and marinate in zesty Italian dressing.

Grill until bacon is cooked. It's heaven all up in your mouth.


Sometimes I like to use Italian dressing to marinate turkey, chicken and steak, so here is a homemade dry mix you can make ahead and add oil and vinegar when ready to use. What a great way to save money!


Homemade Italian Dressing Mix

Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon onion powder
  • 2 tablespoons oregano
  • 1 tablespoon dried parsley
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 tablespoon white sugar
  • 1 tablespoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried celery leaves or flakes

Directions:

Mix ingredients together and store in a tightly closed container in a cool and dry place.

Homemade Italian Dressing

Ingredients:




  • 1/4 cup vinegar
  • 1/2 cup canola oil
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 2 tablespoons Italian dressing mix (above)

Directions:

Shake well and chill the night before you use it.
