Who doesn’t love bacon-wrapped poppers! This is a field-to-table recipe. When dove season rolls around, you can bet I’ll be making dove bacon-wrapped jalapeno poppers. This is such a simple and easy recipe.
Dove breasts, cut in halves
Jalapenos or Anaheim peppers, cut in halves
You will need Toothpicks
Pre-Heat Traeger Grill to 350 degrees. If you don't have a Traeger, you can use your oven.
Cut the jalapenos in half longways. Make sure to scrape all the seeds and insides out. If you don’t, your mouth might be on fire when you take a bite...but if you like spicy, you might want to leave a few in!
Fill the jalapeno halves with cream cheese. Put half of a dove breast on the top of the cream cheese. Wrap the stuffed popper tightly with a slice of bacon. Use a couple of toothpicks to hold them together.
Tip: Use flavored cream cheese such as chive and onion to add some extra flavor!
For something a little different, you can put another half on top of the other popper to make popper sandwiches.
Place the poppers right on the grill or on a baking sheet in the oven. Bake until the bacon is nice and crispy. Let cool a little, and then serve.
What a perfect appetizer or main course.
