Ok guys this is a pretty simple recipe I have come up with. You will need:

Pigeon breasts (2 per person)
Home made bread crumbs (4 slices did 14 breasts)
1 large pack of boursin cheese
1 or 2 eggs
Some fresh sage leaves (optional)
Some parmesan cheese
Some olive oil
Salt
Pepper
Plain flour

Stage 1: Making the bread crumbs

First get some slices of stale bread (or leave some slices out of the pack the day before you plan to eat this meal). Pop these in a blender or food processor, and blitz them till they are of a bread crumb consistency. To the bread crumbs add a few gratings of parmesan cheese and 3-4 finely chopped sage leaves.

Stage 2: Preparing the breasts

Take your breasts (make sure you try to keep the little fillets), and using a sharp knife slice carefully into the breast making a cavity (be careful not to cut all the way through). The cavity created is now filled with the boursin cheese and the little fillet is placed over the cut to seal the cheese in.





Stage 3: Coating the breasts

Now that your breasts are stuffed you will need to coat them with the bread crumbs. Add some salt and pepper to the plain flour and then coat each breast (a dusting on both sides). Then dip each breast into a bowl of whisked egg and the finally on to the plate of bread crumbs. You are now ready to start cooking.

By this time they should look something like this:



Stage 4: Cooking

Heat about half an inch of olive oil in a frying pan or wok to a medium heat. You can then carefully place each breast into the oil. Then cook for around 4 minutes on each side (for medium rare) and the bread crumbs should be a nice golden brown colour.



Serve with potato wedges and veg (or anything really) and enjoy with a nice bottle of red or some beers.



But be careful the night may degenerate into this:



It did when i cooked it! :lol:

Hope you enjoy it lads!

Excellent post hughgoldsmith.

I've yet to eat pigeon, but I've been told there pretty nice.
I will certainly be returning to this post when I do try my first pigeon.

Well done mate.

Maybe we should have a dedicated recipe forum.

Move over Jamie Oliver! On a slightly different note I was recently given some corriander and chilli rabbit sausages to try and they were delish (sorry!) Despite shooting a fair number I've never been that keen on rabbit, I may have to have a rethink.

PS ... I can't cook I'd either set myself on fire or poison someone!

Good recipe Hugh, will be trying this one out tonight.

Never eaten pigeon before, hopefully i'll like it nothing like mixing a sport you love with saving money with meat prices the way they are. Andnow i've got a small shoot round the corner from me and they are everywhere. On a side note how long can you keep pigeon breast in the fridge or freezer before eating?

Hi UP, in the freezer it will last months, in the fridge it will last as long as any other meat will. Although obliviously eating it as fresh as possible is best. Let me know how the recipe went for you, would love some feedback!

Hugh,

The verdict is good. Absolutely gorgeous. Although next time i think i'll try with cheddar instead of boursin purely a taste preference though. The mrs thought it was amazing and has even given me permission to buy a new rifle so she can have it more often. In all honesty i don't think the idea of kievs would have even entered my mind if it hadnt been for your recipe idea.
