    My favorite was the way my Grandmother fixed them. She grew up on a farm in Louisiana and squirrel was very common table fare. She would cut them into pieces, brown them, add some water and onion, and simmer them till the meat almost fell off the bone. That with some home made biscuits and mashed taters and gravy can't be beat in my book. Catfishjon

    Ive only had them in calif at secret campground I use to go to. We always simmered them with salt and pepper and added cream of mushroom towards the end.

    i season then brown them(quartered out) in bacon grease. then put them in crock pot with a can of cream celery and can of cream of mushroom plus 1 can of water. make sure you stir the liquid up good and let her cook till tender.
