Ingredients

  • 12 ounces raw bacon, diced
  • 2 cups onions, chopped
  • 1/2 cup celery, chopped
  • 1/2 cup bell peppers, chopped
  • 1 medium eggplant, peeled and diced
  • 3 tablespoons garlic, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon fresh thyme, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon finely parsley, chopped
  • 1/2 cup green onions, chopped
  • 4 cups crumbled corn bread
  • 2 cups chicken stock
  • Salt and cayenne pepper
  • 6 whole squabs
  • Olive oil, for drizzling
  • 12 whole shallots
  • 2 cups Demi-glace
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 pound haricots verts, (blanched)

Directions

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. In a large saute pan over medium heat, render the bacon until crispy, about 6 to 8 minutes. Stir in the onions, celery, and bell peppers. Season with salt and pepper. Saute for 3 to 4 minutes. Stir in the eggplant and continue to saute for 3 minutes. Season with salt and cayenne. Stir in 2 tablespoons garlic, thyme, parsley and green onions. Remove from the heat and turn into a mixing bowl. Stir in the corn bread and stock. Mix thoroughly. Season the dressing with salt and cayenne. Season each squab with olive oil, salt and cayenne. Stuff each cavity of the squab with about 3/4 cup of the dressing. Toss the shallots with olive oil, salt and pepper. Place the stuffed squab and shallots on a parchment-lined roasting pan. Place the squab in the oven and roast for 25 to 30 minutes, or until the squab is golden brown and the juices run clear. Remove the pan from the oven and separate the sections of the shallots. Place the shallots in a saucepan and cover with the veal reduction. Bring the liquid to a boil and reduce to a simmer. Simmer for 2 minutes. Season the sauce with salt and pepper (this is a shallot reduction). In a large saute pan, melt the butter. Add the haricots verts and the remaining garlic. Season with salt and pepper. Saute for 2 to 3 minutes. Serve the squabs with the haricots verts and a ladle of shallot reduction.
