Roast Galantine of Grouse with a Scots Porridge & Blackpudding Farci.

This recipe requires a little bit of skill to complete but patience and time is all you need. If you are not too keen on Grouse it can be replaced with Quail, Partridge, Pheasant or a Guinea Fowl.
1 Brace of Grouse
25g Scots Porridge Oats
50g good quality Blackpudding ( I like Clonakilty!)
8 rashers of smoked Streaky Bacon
1 Banana Shallot
250ml game stock
50g unsalted Butter.
1 onion
1 carrot
1 stick of celery
6 peppercorns
1 bay leaf
1tbsp vegetable oil
Remove the wings from each bird and place in a heavy based saucepan, add the chopped onion, vegetable oil, chopped carrot and chopped celery, fry on a high heat stirring regularly.
Lay the birds on their breast so the backbone is upright and slit the length of the spine, follow the bones until the carcass is removed, add the chopped carcass to the pan and continue frying until well coloured, add the peppercorns and bay leaf with 500ml water, bring to the boil, skim of any scum and reduce to a simmer, cook for 2-3 hours then strain through a fine sieve in to a clean pan and reduce to 250ml.
Add the Scots Porridge oats and allow to soak the stock
Heat a large frying pan and finely dice the shallot and Blackpudding fry in a little of the butter then add to the oats. Check the seasoning and divide between the 2 birds, pull the skin together once the stuffing is where the carcass used to be and shape to resemble the grouse. Wrap each bird with 4 rashers of the bacon and secure with a little string, tie the legs together.
Heat a heavy frying pan and add the butter, place the birds in, split side down and fry, basting the breast for 2-3 minutes, place Ina hot oven (180oC) for 12 minutes, remove from the oven and baste then allow to relax.
Enjoy with the Bread Sauce Soufflé and Game Chips.
