Ingredients

Pheasant

3 tablespoons LAND O LAKES® Butter
2 teaspoons finely chopped fresh garlic
2 (1 1/2 to 2-pound) pheasants, split in half

Rice

1 pound thick sliced bacon
1 cup red wine or apple juice
3 cups cooked wild rice
4 medium (2 cups) carrots, sliced 1-inch
1 cup frozen pearl onions

Directions

Heat oven to 350œF. Melt butter in 10-inch skillet until sizzling; stir in garlic. Place pheasants, skin-side down, in skillet. Cook over medium heat, turning occasionally, until lightly browned (8 to 10 minutes). Remove pheasants; set aside.

Lightly brown 8 strips bacon in same skillet; remove from pan. Set aside.

Cut remaining bacon into 1-inch pieces. Place in same skillet; cook until crisp (8 to 10 minutes); remove from pan. Pour off bacon drippings. Add wine to skillet; cook, scraping pan occasionally, 2 to 3 minutes.

Combine bacon pieces, rice, carrots and onions in ungreased 13x9-inch baking pan. Place pheasants, skin-side up, on top of rice. Place 2 strips of lightly browned bacon on each pheasant half; pour wine mixture over pheasants and rice mixture. Cover with aluminum foil; bake for 1 to 1 1/4 hours. Uncover; continue baking for 25 to 35 minutes or until pheasants are fork tender and bacon is browned.
