Like to soak them in salt water few hours if I can, really cleans em up. Roll in flour seasoned with what ever you like,salt, pepper, cavendars, maybe a little cajun. Fry in cast iron skillet, then make gravy. Better than deer to me. Works best with young squirrels. If you got old ones make dumplings just like chicken.

so just deep fry em essentially with some yams and gravy on the side? sounds good to me.

Young squirrels can be fried ( as stated above) . Older critters are best cut up and cooked in a crook pot for several hours. Add Cream of Mushroom and water and eat right off the bone or cook in water and onions, remove meat from bones and add BBQ sauce.

Cut them up and brown them in a cast iron pot. Once browned, throw in 2 cut up onions, 1 bell pepper, and a heaping tablespoon of minced garlic. Add salt/pepper/cajun seasoning as desired. Cover with water and bring to boil. Turn heat down and cook 3-4 hours or longer to get tender if needed. Add water as needed. Serve over rice. We do a huge pot for opening weekend every year, usually over an open fire.

Cut squirrel into small cubes. In a pan put potatoes, carrots, onions, beef broth, cubed beef, celery and seasoning. Throw squirrel out the back door and enjoy your stew......

Smothered squirrel: this is an old Cajun dish and the best way to cook less desirable parts of venison, squirrel or rabbit. I still eat it this way today even though I migrated and settled in Wisconsin!! They got bigger deer here!
Quarter up your squirrel and dredge in flour, brown off both sides in a black iron pot.
Remove squirrel from pot and set aside
Add sliced onion, bell pepper and mushrooms, diced celery and minced garlic , salt, pepper and Cajun seasoning (I use Tony Cacheries)
Lower heat and cook until onions are transparent
Add squirrel back to pot and cook on low to medium low heat for 2 hours gently stirring a few times until squirrel is tender and seasonings form a thick gravy!
Serve over rice.
Don't get no better!! Below is a picture of what it looks like but done with venison neck roast! Enjoy!!!

Skin, clean and quarter the squirrel or rabbit. Soak it in salt water for a couple hours. Next remove the meat from the bones. Dip the meat in egg an dust it in flour. Salt and pepper it and fry it in olive oil. Put over egg noodles or mashed potatoes with chicken gravy. Pretty good eats.
