What a title, eh?
And I know you are probably thinking, "Goose? Really? Didn't you screw up the last goose you made?"
Yes, I did.
But, when you have a husband, father, and brother that delight in hunting and your family isn't the sort to just hunt for the sport, you have to find more ways to make that tough goose into something delicious.
And this just happens to be that "something delicious".
If goose isn't your thing, by all means, use duck.
Or pork tenderloin.
Really, whatever floats your boat!
Bacon Wrapped Cream Cheese Stuffed Goose Jalapeño Poppers
Makes around 16.
Begin the night before for better results!
2 cups buttermilk
4 goose breasts, cleaned and trimmed
8 large jalapeños, cleaned
1/2 - 3/4 cup whipped cream cheese
4 slices bacon, cut into fourths
The night before you want to grill, soak the cleaned breasts in the buttermilk in a large bowl, covered with plastic wrap, in the fridge.
The day you want to grill, preheat your oven to 425* and your grill to high.
Roast jalapeños in the oven for 10 minutes, and remove to cool.
Remove the goose from the buttermilk and pat dry with paper towels.
Cut each breast in half.
Cut each half into half, lengthwise.
Cut the cooled jalapeños in half.
*You might want to wear gloves for this part....*
Stuff with cream cheese.
Take a piece of goose and wrap it around the jalapeño half, seam side down.
Take a piece of bacon, and wrap around the goose, seam side up.
Grill for about 7-10 minutes, per side, about 15-20 minutes total.
Enjoy alone or with some ranch :)
