Guinea Hens

A friend of mine gave me three Guinea Hens he recently slaughtered so it looks like a weekend cooking project is in order. Guinea Hen meat can be tough so I'm thinking about the following method:

  • Bone all the meat
  • Make a stock with the roasted carcass bones
  • Grind the dark meat into a porchetta style sausage meat (garlic, fennel, rosemary)
  • Pound the breast meat into a thin cutlet, and roll up with the forcemeat
  • Wrap in the skin, truss and slow roast on the Big Green Egg
  • Make a gravy with the stock
I'll report back over the weekend with the results
