2 to 4 slices of hickory smoked bacon
Fresh Rosemary - a small pack or at least 4 to 6 large sprigs
FreshJax Rosy Cheeks Spice
Heat Oven to 400
Lightly Rub pheasants with olive oil and set in a roasting pan - I prefer my cast iron skillets
Sprinkle the pheasants all over with Rosy Cheeks - do not be shy
Set the pheasants breast side up in the pan and using cooking string to tie legs together
Lay 2 to 4 slices of Hickory smoked bacon across the birds
Slice your orange into round slices and cut them into half
Lay the orange slices all over the tops of the pheasants
Then tuck a few rosemary springs in between the legs and underneath the bacon and oranges so it is on skin
Place roasting pan with pheasants in the oven for 30 minutes then baste with juices, place back in oven for up to 20 minutes or until internal temperature reaches 165*
Pull out of the oven and let rest for a few minutes before plating and serving.
Enjoy! Here's to your healthy culinary adventure!
