Thread: What to do with Woodcock?!

  1. #1

    What to do with Woodcock?!

    Got loads of 'em round here at the moment.........
    Is there some kind of Woodcock pie or something that I should be making?
    Or what's your favourite way to cook them?

    Plain roast for me possibly bacon strips across the breast as it's cooked

    Guts out. Sat on toast. Bacon over top. Bit of lard. Cooked a bit pink.
    serve with a sharp knife...

    that's exactly what I usually do (it is delicious) but I'm trying to get a bit more creative with cooking these days

    Guts in all day long, just remove the gizzard, you're missing the best bit if you remove them!
    Opinions are like arseholes....... we all have them, and most of them stink

    Haha! That made me laugh.

    Guts in or out you should leave the head on so you can use the beak as a straw for the gravy.

    surely that doesn't actually work?

    Each to their own, don't knock it til you try it though, you're missing out, the head should be retained, brains eaten too and then the skull can be used as a spoon for the gravy, never tried using the bill as a straw though, just always used it as a trussing skewer during cooking.....

    I don't really fancy the idea myself.......it's just the thought of the slimy, blue, worm-filled guts.......they may well taste fantastic but it just doesn't seem right
