    Serves 2.

    4 Snipe - whole, cleaned (save livers)
    1 teaspoon paprika
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    1/4 teaspoon freshly-ground black pepper
    2 slices bacon
    1/4 pound butter, melted
    1/2 cup Boiling water
    1/2 teaspoon minced parsley
    1/2 cup brandy; heated

    Dust birds with paprika, salt, and pepper; wrap with bacon. Put birds in a small roasting pan and roast at 350 degrees for 20 minutes, until done, basting with some of the butter. Mash the livers and cook in melted butter in a saucepan. Mix roaster drippings with 1/2 cup boiling water and add to livers. Correct seasoning, add parsley, and serve sauce separately with birds. Slice off the breasts, put breasts on a hot platter, pour on heated brandy, and flame. This recipe yields 2-3 servings.
