Jay D's Bites: Jalapeño Duck Poppers with Barbecue Cream Cheese

by Aimee Tortorich

Looking for a cool way to use Jay D’s Louisiana Barbecue Sauce? Try these jalapeño duck poppers with barbecue cream cheese! The sweetness of the cream cheese with the smokiness of the bacon and heat from the jalapeño is a perfect bite. They're a great appetizer at tailgates and holiday parties.

Jalapeño Duck Poppers with Jay D's Barbecue Glaze:

Yields 10-12 duck poppers

1 duck breast, sliced into ¼” slices (should result in 10-12 slices)
10 fresh jalapeño pepper slices, seeded
3 slices of bacon, sliced into thirds
¼ cup of cream cheese
½ cup of Jay D’s Louisiana Barbecue Sauce, divided

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. 

Lay bacon on sheet pan for 7-8 minutes.  Set aside and cool.

Combine cream cheese with 3 Tbs. of Jay D’s Louisiana Barbecue Sauce and set aside.

To assemble duck poppers, layer one slice of duck on top each piece of bacon.   Spoon a teaspoon of the barbecue cream cheese mixture on each piece of duck and top with a sliced jalapeño.  Roll up and secure with a toothpick. 

Place poppers on a sheet pan and parcook in the oven for 7 minutes.  Heat grill pan on medium high heat and grill for 3-5 minutes, while basting with Jay D’s Louisiana Barbecue Sauce and enjoy!
