Heavenly Roasted Guinea Fowl

Bacon-Wrapped Guinea Fowl

I don’t claim to be the world’s greatest cook but I am just terribly proud of this meal. The beans came from our garden and were canned in my kitchen, the potatoes were locally grown (we do not have enough room for potatoes in our garden patch), and the guinea came from our very own backyard.

Girls and Guinea

One full-grown guinea feeds a family of four without leftovers. The meat on the legs is very flavorful but difficult to access. ready player one iphone 6 case Josh struggled with it a bit but loved the flavor and texture. Remember: guinea fowl falls into the game bird category. See? I told you we ate the guinea. The girls LOVED it! My oldest wants another one for her birthday dinner.

  • Lori Tetrick - Looks delicious – I can see why you’re proud of it. So is guinea meat sort of like filet mignon – you need to wrap it with bacon because it has so little fat?ReplyCancel

  • Simple Livin' gal - Lori —

    I would say that of the different recipes I’ve tried — this was by far the best for guinea hens and primarily because of the bacon. It kept the meat tender and juicy. I’m certain there are other ways to bypass the bacon like soaking the bird in buttermilk overnight. I haven;t tried the buttermilk trick on anything other than chicken and turkey. Try it and let me know how it goes!

    Blessings!
