Hi my pals. I have been thinking a lot about the upcoming Olympics here in Blogsville. I was thinking wow, we will be celebrating together and what can I bring to the after parties?? I mean I am stumped, I do enjoy cooking but I have never cooked for a crowd, especially one that will include, dogs, cats, horses, crabs, and any other group that might join in. MY PLATE IS EMPTY!
No worries my pals, Mommy to the rescue. She will be providing us with unlimited cheeto crusted, beer battered fried squirrel with cheesy beer sauce for dipping. Now I know what you are thinking"I am allergic to squirrel" well no problem, this recipe can be adapted for possum, ground hog, mice, rats, etc.
Some of you(Puddles) are adept(Puddles) at catching your own meat. We use traps and have the meat butchered elsewhere. Mommy is not into that part of it. Kudos to the hunters and huntresses though.
Cut the meat into nice bite sized pieces and marinate overnight in beer.
This is very important, NEVER use hot oil without human supervision. I can't stress this enough. Please let them do that part.Put a large amount of cheetos in a food processor and get them nice and fine. Try not to eat too many as you will run out of coating later.
The next morning after a night of beer marinade you are ready to go. Drop the meat into the crushed cheetos and fry golden brown. AGAIN DO NOT FRY WITHOUT HUMAN SNOOPERVISION. You can at this point consume some of the beer from the marinade. Don't let it go to waste. Take the rest of the beer and mix it in a blender with a soft cheese, such as cheese whiz. Warm it slightly and it makes a delicious dipping sauce. Consume the remaining beer.
Here is the finished product. Mommy likes to add some fresh vegetable for a pleasing plate. Next, enjoy!
Mommy is preparing lots of this for our celebration pawties. I hope you found this usefull. Now back to training for me, "I can't seem to get just the right pattern with my noseprint..."
p.s. if anyone has any extra squirrel or other meat, please let me know.
