 My daughters boyfriends went hunting and brought us back some pheasant... I had never cooked pheasant before but let me tell you how delicious these are!!Pheasant Breasts with Pomegranate Sauce Cooking with The Style Sisters
I looked around for some recipe ideas because I was unfamiliar with Pheasant breasts and I found a recipe for pheasant popper appetizer and decided to come up with a similar idea. Most of these recipes use Jalapeno peppers but I chose to use a green pepper.

Ingredients
4 Pheasant breasts cleaned and ready
4 strips bacon
4 Tbsp cream cheese
1 green or red pepper
salt and pepper
Pomegranate jam or jelly
Olive oil

These were really simple to make and quick to cook too!
Preheat oven to 375 degrees

Directions
1. I placed about a tablespoon of cream cheese in the center of each breast topped with a slice or two of the peppers, sprinkled salt and pepper on each breast.

2. Roll up each breast with bacon and secure with tooth pick

3. Add olive oil to black cast iron pan..(I have found this pan browns really nice) Cook over medium heat until browned on all sides about 4-6 minutes turning to make sure each side is browned.

4. While breasts are cooking heat up some Pomegranate jelly in another pan or microwave until melted. My cute neighbor made this at Christmas and gave us some..soooo delicious!!

5. Pour melted jelly over the breasts to coat them and then pop the frying pan into the oven at 375 degrees for just about 7 or 8 minutes to finish cooking.

These pheasant breasts are pretty small and an adult could probably eat two but we each had one and ohhh were they good!! 
I served kind of a rice pilaf and mandarin orange carrots with this. 
Recipes for those will be coming up on the blog!

    1. Raspberry or grape jelly would be yummy on the pheasant. Probably any jelly that has a little tartness to it.
