Pigeons


Ingredients

  • 2 pigeons – breasts only    
  • 2 carrots
  • 2 slices of bacon, previously fried    
  • 1 lb mushrooms
  • ½ lb stewing steak      
  • flour and seasoning
  • 2 potatoes       
  • small amount of water or stock
  • 2 onions      
  • pinch of mixed herbs

  • Pigeon Casserole
    Place breasts in a casserole together with bacon (chopped into small pieces) and the steak (after rolling it in seasoned flour). 

    Add the onions, potatoes, carrots, mushrooms and seasoning. 

    Then half fill the dish with water or stock and add the herbs. 

    Cook gently for 3 hours. 

    This recipe is greatly improved by adding a wineglass of dry red wine about half way through the cooking.

    A likey for me. I love the top series. I have things like that but don't use software to put it together. Not enough time or inclination.
    Bill Phillips: This was done with Picasa which is very quick and simple
    looks like the right one is a bit hen, no make that pigeon pecked
    Bill Phillips: The one did not want to share his lunch!
    Nice collage, and I guess the casserole tasted really good after taking all those shots?
    Bill Phillips: I have never had pigeon casserole, but I would try it

    They look vaguely bemused by the fat ball.

    As for the recipe, I've never actually tried pigeon casserole, pie or umm, not sure what else you can do with pigeon actually!
    Bill Phillips: I've never had pigeon. It took them a while to master landing on here but bow they use it all the timwe and nest in our garden. I rather like them, they have a comical personality

    I knew they were good for something other than messing up my balconies.
    Bill Phillips: I'm not sure if feral pigeons are edible

    Oh good grief - he's an ornithologist & cook too. IS THERE NO END TO THIS MAN'S TALENTS??
    Bill Phillips: I'm quite a good cook but not so good on birdsgrin
    Great collage Bill, telling a story. Great recipe I think, though I doubt I will ever try it.
    Bill Phillips: I never have but I will try most things
    Eat your heart out Gordon Ramsey! Lovely collection of images. (:o)
    Bill Phillips: It looks quite tasty
    They taste better in the casserole when they are well fed.
    Fine collage Bill!
    Bill Phillips: That makes sense Richard. A nice plump pigeon

    Great collage. I'm not fond of pigeon but am willing to try anything at least once. So when should I be coming over smile?
    Bill Phillips: I have never tried it either, I make a decent steak and onion pie though
    An enjoyable post Bill.
    Bill Phillips: Thank you kindly
    Yup - correct identification, Bill - and very tasty they can be too!
    Bill Phillips: I have never eate one but I would happily give it a go. I did have jugged Hare once which was tasty!

    LOL! How can you showsuch an engaging series of images and then follow it with a pigeon pie recipe? Sounds lovely, though.
    Bill Phillips: A sick mind?

    These are rather posh looking pigeons Bill, not like the vermin you get in London. I wonder which tastes better?
    Bill Phillips: These are proper wood pigeons not the feral ones that clutter up city centres. I think they are the ones you eat but I don't actually know!
    Funny! Great collage Bill.
    Bill Phillips: I missed the shot were the right hand pigeon took a great peck at the other one!
