Nibbles (Appetizers)

* Duck Breasts (C. Roy Daigle)

  • Duck breasts (skin removed)
  • Bacon
  • Orange juice

  1. Season the duck breast (you can make your own seasoning...cayene pepper, salt, garlic powder, celery powder) generously.
  2. Marinate in orange juice for 2+ hours, overnight is better.
  3. Remove from marinate, cut into bite size pieces, wrap in bacon, secure with tooth pick.
  4. Grill over low to medium heat. Best when middle is a little pink.
Note: I would imagine that breast from other fowl (turkey, chicken) would do just as well.

* Bacon Jalapeno Bites (Kate Mottram)

  • Fresh, whole Jalapeno peppers (2-3 inches)
  • Cream Cheese, softened to room temperature.
  • Bacon, sliced into 4 inch strips

  1. Cut jalapenos in half, length-wise.
  2. Remove jalapeno innards with a spoon.
  3. Fill each jalapeno half with cream cheese.
  4. Wrap jalapeno halves in bacon strips. Leave some slack as you don't want the bacon to contract during cooking and squeeze the cheese out of your bites. Secure with a toothpick.
  5. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  6. Bake 20 minutes or so until the bacon looks done.
  7. Serve!
Note: The more jalapeno innards you leave behind, the hotter these become. Leave a bit of white membrane and a few seeds behind for bites that will bite back! Clean 'em good for a less hot experience.
