How to make it

  • rub squabs with lemon and sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste
  • inside each squab place 2 small onions cut in hal
  • place in an uncovered casserole adding a pinch of rosemary, thyme and wine (again use a wine you would drink)
  • cook at 500 degrees F for 15 minutes
  • reduce heat to 350 degrees F
  • add the finely diced giblets and mushrooms.
  • As the wine evaporates add more to keep the bottom of the casserole moist while cooking.
  • Place a cover on the casserole and cook 20 minutes more. You may need to adjust the time a little depending on the size of the birds.
  • You can also sub small cornish game hens and adjust cooking time accordingly.
