Maintenant, je suis retourné ...

Last week I promised to resume daily commentary. Weeeeeeell ... I lied. I was invited to do some serious dove-hunting not long after I penned my "I'm back" post, and, that's what I've been doing the past several days (sans computer, of course).

In the spirit of my recent huntin' exploits, please to enjoy a dove recipe I posted back in '07, which followed a snarky e-mail I received from a PETA fool who took me to task for "promoting" hunting here at A Man's Gotta Eat:

Baked Dove in Wine Sauce


1 cup flour
10 dove breasts
1 stick butter or margarine
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 cup chicken broth
1/2 cup white wine
Salt and pepper


Preheat oven to 350°.

In skillet, melt butter or margarine. Add garlic and simmer 1 minute to release the flavor of the garlic.

Season dove breasts generously with salt and pepper and dredge in flour. Brown breasts in skillet 2-3 minutes per side.

Place breasts in baking dish (do not overcrowd). Pour broth and wine over breasts and cover dish with aluminum foil. Bake 1 hour.

Remove dish from oven and baste dove breasts. Return dish to oven, uncovered, and bake for 10 minutes.

Serve with rice or egg noodles.

PETA.... I always thought that stood for "People Eating Tasty Animals". I wholeheartedly support the push to stop greenhouse warming by reducing the bovine population... all I need is a fork, a knife, some charcoal, and a lighter. I'll wear the hide, too, so that nothing goes to waste -I look fabulous in leather. April (from TX)
