How to cook pheasant legs

I have 4 pheasant legs and have absolutely no idea how to cook them. Would they go into a cassoulet? Does anyone have a recipe using these? thanks.

pheasant legs

Let's assume they're old/mature birds. Just do them, as a usual casserole slowly cooked with veg in wine and stock.

cassoulet?

That's a dish with confit birds. You'd have to confit them first.

Pheasant legs

Bit late in the day I know, but I sometimes saute the breasts wrapped in bacon/parma ham which leaves the legs.
Last time I stripped the leg meat off the bones, minced it, and mixed with a little onion, dried breadcrumb, egg and seasoning, and made sort of mini rissoles/burgers with it. I then fried these for a few minutes and I have to say, they were not at all bad. I served them with the sauteed breasts.
This also means that you don't have to spend hours plucking and drawing the birds. Just strip off the skin with feathers intact, slice the breasts off and mince the leg meat.
