Uccellini allo spiedo (schiodinata)

(Small birds on a spit)

For this course sparrows or other small birds of the same size are needed, but only if allowed by law. Pluck them, clean them and burn them, but just a little bit; every bird is filled with sage, salt, a pinch of pepper and juniper berry, then bind them with a slice of bacon. At this moment make some kebabs alternating a filled bird with a slice of bread and a bay leaf.

Put these kebabs on a spit and cook them on fire, but without flame; while cooking it is important to grease them with a lock of sage wet in oil.
