Here's a great way to use and even enjoy the pheasant the outdoorsmen in your life brings home! This appetizer creates a spicy, crisp and delicious mouthful sure to fool anyone who would wrinkle up their nose to pheasant! This has quickly become my number 1 requested appetizer by friends and family. So simple and so darn good!

Directions

  1. Cut the pheasant breast into 36 pieces, and place into a bowl. Pour the liquid from the jalapeno peppers over the pheasant, stir, and set aside to marinate for 20 minutes.
  2. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium heat, and lightly oil the grate.
  3. Drain the marinade from the pheasant and discard. Place a slice of jalapeno pepper onto each piece of pheasant breast, and wrap with a third of a strip of bacon. Skewer 6 of the pheasant pieces on each skewer.
  4. Cook on the preheated grill, turning frequently, until the bacon is crispy, 15 to 20 minutes. Remove the skewers from the pheasant pieces, and place a toothpick into each piece to serve.

Awsome! We soaked the pheasant in buttermilk overnight to get rid of the gamey taste. Very good super bowl appetizer!

These are amazing! I usually am not a big fan of game bird, but these are unbelievable! We used pickled jalapenos (Mrs Renfros) Amazing! Highly recomended!

My husband just went on his annual pheasant hunting trip. I threw this recipe in his bag, as it looked easy for a non-multitasking man. He called me and said they were great, and were a huge hit with the guys. They made them two nights in a row. I can't wait to try them myself. Thanks!!
