Starlings. They are plucked dry, gutted, then cut off the heads and feet, then sew up, put in pastry with two strips of bacon on them: or cut the parts in pieces like a chick, and treat like mincemeat, that is to say that you cut the thigh into three parts, and leave the bones in each piece: the wings also, and the rest the same, and then fry in the skillet with eggs like mincemeat (hamburger: Trans.) It seems to be a good idea to half cook them before frying.
