Wild Turkey Poppers

Recipe submitted to "Cooking Across Turkey Country"                                   


  • Wild Turkey Breast
  • 12 jalapeno peppers, halved and seeds removed
  • Italian dressing
  • Bacon
  • Cream cheese


Marinate a wild turkey breast in your favorite brand of Italian dressing for 24 hours. Cut the turkey meat into pieces that will fit easily inside the pepper halves. Spread cream cheese inside the pepper halves and place the turkey strips on top of the cream cheese. Wrap a bacon strip around the outside and secure with a toothpick. Grill until the bacon is done. Cool before serving.

FYI: Use banana peppers as a less tongue-torching alternative.
