Dove poppers

Some of the best recipes I've ever tasted have come off this forum. This will be my first year to grill some dove on the egg and I'm curious if any of y'all have some recipes you would like to share.

    salt and pepper the breast, stuff with jalapeno, maybe some cream cheese, wrap in bacon and grill. I usually glaze it with bbq sauce too. They are delicious.

  • I take the fillets off the breast, put 'em inside a cored jalapeño or hot Hatch along with some jack cheese. Wrap in bacon and let 'em rip till the bacon is cooked. I do them in a pepper rack so the cheese can't escape.

    Cook them medium.  It's a lean, dark-meat bird.

  • Fillet out the breast
    Marinade in zesty Itilian dressing for 12 hrs.
    Put a chunk of pinapple inside the fillet. Wrap with a slice of bacon and secure with a toothpick.
  • I like them browned hot and fast then simmered in brown gravy. Serve over burgers noodles. While thing can be done in a Dutch oven on the egg. Delicious!
    Finally back in the Badger State!
