This recipe is from Nancy Rooks who was the cook for Elvis Presley. This is one of the recipes she said she made for the Presley family.

1 1/2 lbs squirrel meat
1 tsp ground pepper
1 tsp parsley flakes
1 tsp seasoned salt
1 cup flour
1 1/2 cups cooking oil

Boil squirrel until tender; remove from water; pat dry. Season and coat with flour. Place into hot oil and cook until brown. If desired, make brown gravy.

Note: My grandfather loved fried squirrel. I don't think my grandmother used the parsley flakes and she used regular salt unstead of seasoned salt but otherwise she cooked it much the same.
