This next recipe was submitted by John Kohler of N. Tonawanda New York. It sounds great!

Pheasant Delmonico

Wash and cut your pheasant into serving pieces. Dry pieces with a paper towel and brush with melted butter.

Season with Salt & Pepper. Place one cup of Bisquick in a paper bag, add Pheasant pieces and shake to thoroughly coat. Remove pieces and put in a roaster pan.

Pour ½ cup of melted butter over the pieces, cover and bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes.

Remove from oven, uncover and place squares of cheese over each piece. Reduce oven temperature to 250 degrees and return Pheasant pieces to oven, un-covered and bake until cheese turns slightly brown. Mmmmm Mmmmmm!

End of the Season Zucchini Bread

3 eggs
2 cups grated zucchini
1 c. oil
1 Tbsp. vanilla
3 cups flour
1 cups sugar
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. baking powder
1 Tbsp. cinnamon
1 cup chopped nuts (optional)

Preheat over to 325-degrees F.

Grease and flour a 9-inch bread pan (and, if you'd like to use the extra batter, line the cups of 13 mini muffin cups).

Beat eggs in a large bowl. Add in all the other ingredients, except the nuts, and mix until just combined. Fold in nuts. Scoop batter into pans and bake mini muffins for approximately 18 minutes; the loaf for 80 to 90 minutes.
