1 pack Wild and Game grouse breasts
A glug of olive oil
A knob of butter

For the sauce

each side or until cooked to your liking. Set aside to rest.

4. Add the other sauce ingredients, stir and cook for a couple of minutes then turn the
heat off.
5. Scoop the potato flesh out of the skins into a bowl, add the butter to the bowl and
mash. Taste and add salt and pepper to taste.
6. Heat a knob of butter in a pan and add the 2 cloves of minced garlic. Cook for a
minute and then add the leeks. Cook until soft and season to taste.

sauce over the grouse
