Dove Recipes

Fried Dove Recipes



6 to 12 dove breasts

homemade garlic powder
dried sage
salt and pepper to taste


Rub the dove breasts in garlic powder and sage and fry in butter. They are also excellent on the grill.



2 TBS butter, melted
16 to 18 dove breasts

1 onion, chopped
2 cups sour cream
1 can homemade cream of mushroom soup
7 black olives, sliced
1/2 cup fresh mushrooms, sliced
1/2 cup fresh asparagus, diced
3/4 tsp homemade garlic powder
3/4 tsp homemade onion powder
2 TBS flour
1-1/2 cups cheddar cheese, shredded
salt and pepper to taste


PREHEAT oven to 350 degrees. Spray a casserole dish with oil and set aside.

Melt the butter in a skillet and fry the dove breasts until brown. Place in the bottom of the prepared baking dish.

Meanwhile, combine the remaining ingredients together in a bowl and pour over the dove breasts. Bake for 1-1/2 hours. Serve with a fresh garden salad and a loaf of homemade bread.



8 to 10 dove breasts
vegetable oil for rubbing dove breasts
2 TBS homemade unsalted butter
4 cups stuffing
1 TBS fresh parsley, chopped
1 tsp homemade garlic powder
1 tsp homemade onion powder
1/2 tsp paprika
1/4 cup homemade unsalted butter, melted
salt and pepper to taste
PREHEAT oven to 350 degrees and spray a casserole dish with vegetable oil; set aside.
Rub the dry dove breasts with vegetable oil and fry in the butter until golden brown.
Mix the remaining ingredients together in a large bowl. Place half of the stuffing in the prepared casserole dish. Layer with the browned dove breasts and top with the remaining stuffing.

Bake for 45 minutes to 1 hour; or until the dove is cooked through and tender. If the outside of the stuffing gets too dark, just cover with foil.

You may also use corn bread stuffing. It’s excellent.



10 dove breasts
bacon slices for each breast

1/4 cup lemon juice
1/2 tsp homemade unsalted butter
1/2 tsp homemade garlic powder
1/2 tsp homemade onion powder
1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper

Mix together and marinate breasts for 1 hour. Wrap with bacon and grill until done.
