Jalapeno Quail Appetizers
How’s this for spicing up Texas quail? Jalapeno stuffed…and wrapped in applewood smoked bacon. Yum!
2 large jalapeno peppers, halved lengthwise and seeded*
1 pound boneless quail breasts 12 bacon strips
1 (16 ounces) bottle Italian salad dressing
Cut each jalapeno half into three long strips. Place a strip widthwise in the center of each quail breast; roll up from a short side. Wrap each with a bacon strip and secure with toothpicks. Place in a large resealable plastic bag. Add salad dressing; seal bag and turn to coat. Refrigerate for 8 hours or overnight.
Drain and discard marinade. Grill appetizers, covered, over indirect
medium heat for 16-20 minutes or until quail juices run clear and bacon is crisp, turning occasionally.
