When dove season finally comes around, hunters from all over are ready to serve up dove poppers. Everyone's always asking me "Jenn, how do you do your poppers?" and honestly I got tired of having such a boring response! So here it is, my take on dove poppers, let's wrap this in a crescent roll and BOOM: my new favorite way to prepare dove. I like to call it...
Dove Popper in a Blanket
Ingredients: (yields 8 poppers)
- 8 pieces of Dove Breast Meat
- 1 can Pillsbury Crescent Rolls
- 4 Jalapeños
- 1 package Philadelphia Cream Cheese
- 1 lb Bacon
- Steak Seasoning
Preheat oven to 400°F.
Prepare the jalapeños. Cut in half longways and de-seed using the back of a spoon. Set aside.
Season the dove with with steak seasoning. Sear in pan on medium-high heat until each side is golden brown. Approximately for 30-45 seconds per side. Set aside.
Take the half of a jalapeño and fill with cream cheese. Place dove breast on top then wrap in bacon.
Roll up the popper in a crescent roll. (No need to use a toothpick to hold together!)
Once all of the poppers are assembled, place on a cookie sheet and bake for 12-15 minutes until golden brown.
