This recipe came from my grandpa, I haven't tried it but he swears by it.




1 beaver, cut to serving portions

2 Italian sweet onions

4 oz. saltine crackers "1 sleeve"

1/2 cup shortening

1/4 cup bacon drippings

1 cup flour

1/2 teaspoon thyme

1/2 teaspoon paprika

salt & pepper to taste


Parboil beaver in salted water with onions until tender. Heat shortening and bacon grease in a large heavy skillet. Mix thyme, paprika, salt, and pepper, rub into beaver, coat well. Crush crackers to fine crumbs. Roll beaver pieces through cracker crumbs to coat well. Cook real slow with pan 1/2 covered until browned and tender. Serve.

Serves 6-8

My grandpa would prefer having this dish with some corn fritters, scalloped potatoes, and pecan pie for dessert.
