Breast of Grouse Monterey Jack

Breast of Grouse Monterey Jack

You don’t have to do much to a ruffed grouse to bring out the great taste; nor do you want to go too far and overwhelm the natural flavours. This simple but delicious recipe achieves the perfect balance.

Serves: 4


  • 4 ruffed grouse breasts, butterflied
  • 4 slices Monterey Jack, 1/8-inch thick
  • 1 egg white
  • 1 cup cornflakes, crushed
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil


  • Preheat oven to 325°F. Make a slit almost all the way through each breast; fill each slit with 1 slice of cheese.
  • Whisk egg white lightly; brush over outsides of breasts. Press each breast all over into cornflake crumbs until coated.
  • Heat oil in a heavy ovenproof skillet over medium heat; brown breasts, turning once, about 2 minutes per side. Transfer to oven; roast for 10 minutes to finish cooking.
