Tasty Venison and Bacon Poppers

download (9)Around fall is the time that venison starts becoming a popular protein because this is when most deer hunting seasons start. So, if you are a family with a hunter or two in the midst you will likely have a chance to experiment with venison recipes. This particular one brings together the gaminess of venison, smokiness of bacon and the heat of jalapenos. It is a simple grilled app that might be perfect for a late year cookout or around a fall bonfire.

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 pound of venison tenderloin
  • 3 tablespoons of zesty Italian dressing
  • 12 slices of bacon
  • 1/4 cup of softened cream cheese
  • 12 slices of pickled jalapeno peppers
  • 1/2 teaspoon of seasoning salt

Preparation:

1. Cut the tenderloin lengthwise into 12 equally sized strips. Toss these strips in the zesty Italian dressing and let them marinade for about an hour in the fridge.

2. Lay a strip of venison over the top of a strip of bacon. Spoon a teaspoon of the cream cheese onto one end of the layered strip and then place a jalapeno slice on top of that. Roll up the strips around the cream cheese and use a toothpick to secure it together. Repeat this with the rest of the strips and then sprinkle with seasoning salt.

3. Grill over a medium-high heat for about 10 minutes before turning them over and cooking util the bacon has become crisp.
