Ingredients
  • Cajun cream cheese:
  • 1/2 pound cream cheese (recommended: Philadelphia)
  • 2 tablespoons Cajun spices (2 teaspoons paprika, 2 teaspoons cayenne, 2 teaspoons garlic powder)
  • Zesty Italian dressing:
  • 3/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon Italian seasonings
  • 1/4 teaspoon red chili flakes
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 6 fresh jalapeno pepper slices
  • 6 white onions slices
  • 2 slices thinly sliced bacon, cut into thirds
Directions
Zesty Italian dressing:

2 skinless liberty duck breasts

Cajun cream cheese:

Mix all the ingredients thoroughly in a small bowl. Cover and refrigerate until needed.

Italian zesty dressing:

Whisk all the ingredients in a medium bowl until blended.

For the duck poppers:

Slice each duck breast, horizontally, into 3 slices. Cover the slices with plastic wrap and lightly pound until thin. Put 1 jalapeno pepper slice, 1 onion slice and 1 tablespoon Cajun cream cheese on 1 end of each slice. Roll up and wrap in a piece of the bacon. Secure the roll with a toothpick to hold the bacon in place. Add them to the zesty Italian dressing and marinate for 2 hours.

Preheat a grill pan or grill over medium heat. Add the duck poppers and cook just until bacon is done!

Remove them from the grill, transfer to a serving platter and serve.
