Juicy Bacon Wrapped Goose Jalapeno Poppers

It’s not a typical day when you find yourself shooting at birds in your pajamas, but that is exactly what happened on this day. I was busy being a “couch potato” and catching up on episodes of The Bachelor. However, when I got up to let the dogs out the back, I noticed two geese in the pond. Naturally, I sent a video to my family group chat over Snapchat. Their response was obviously “go shoot them.”
With everyone else away, and only me at home, I called my brother for pointers because I have only shot geese while they’re flying in. Since they were just swimming in the pond, he suggested I walk to the back side of the pole barn and go running at them. That way when they get up to fly its fair game. So, there I was… in oversized pajamas, gun in one hand, sprinting in the rain, and taking shots at the geese. I hit one goose but missed the other. The whole time all I could think about was if anyone were to check the back cameras, they sure would be getting a good laugh.
My brother was getting me all hyped up, that there were “a lot of banded geese” flying around right now. He had me convinced that it was going to be banded. So instead of waiting for the current to send the goose to the end of the pond, I improvised with a kayak paddle to retrieve it. Sadly though, there was no band.
The adventure didn’t end there; it transitioned into a day well spent. After shooting the goose, I went on to clean it at home and cooked it at my brother’s house while keeping an eye on my nephews. All in all, an eventful and amusing day!

This recipe offers a flexible approach without strict measurements, allowing you to customize it according to your preferences. I opted for The Meat Union buttermilk ranch as a dipping sauce, which complemented these flavors perfectly. As I've mentioned in a previous recipe, The Meat Union holds a special place for me as a local business here in Michigan. I've thoroughly enjoyed incorporating their products into my cooking adventures.


  • Goose breast

  • Jalapenos

  • Cream cheese

  • Bacon

  • Seasoning of your choice


  1. Pat dry and tenderize both sides of the goose breasts.

  2. Season one side with your likings, press in with fingertips, flip and repeat process. I used Kinder’s Seasoning: The Blend and Woodfired Garlic as well as Cajun Injector Hickory Grill seasoning.

  3. Cover goose breasts and set in fridge.

  4. While the goose is gaining flavor cut and prepare jalapeños. Start by cutting off the stem of each then cut down the middle. Using either a knife or spoon take out all the seeds to reduce the heat of the jalapeno.

  5. Pull out the goose from the fridge and slice into quarter inch pieces. At this time, cut all the bacon in half.

  6. To assemble spoon the cream cheese into the pepper and add the un-cooked goose to the pepper. Wrap the bacon around the jalapeno and secure with a toothpick or two.

  7. Air fry at 350 for about 10 minutes. Just a reminder that this is wild game, and it does cook faster than if this was beef.



It sure was one of the biggest birds that I have ever shot!
