Fried they are hard to beat. Fried taters and goody gravy go good with'em too. Few biscuits too.

Has anyone cooked them whole? An ol timer that let me trap on his land told me that the best way to cook muskrat was to simmer in bacon grease. From what he told me and what you guys give for instructions / ingrediants it seems like my friend's recipe is lacking. I would appreciate any feedback on this :mrgreen:

Bacon helps everything but breading and some seasoning would help. Id guess if he suggested you cook it whole he meant baked or parboiled?
