Perfect for your Super Bowl Party–Bacon-Wrapped Quail

Game meat has definitely become the star of many restaurant menus.  Quail hunting is big throughout the country, and the meat takes quite a bit of effort to attain…makes you appreciate each bite even more!  Quail has 6gm protein per ounce, so a small breast has about 13gm of protein (about the equivalent of 2 eggs).  This recipe pairs the smokey flavor of bacon with the heat of a jalapeño.  Jalapeños are packed with spice that also helps protect your body from inflammation!  So kick up your super bowl party with this appetizer or serve over a bed of greens as a main dish.

You could also substitute dove or pieces of chicken in place of the quail in this recipe.

12 Quail breasts
6 Bacon slices, halved
3 Jalepenos, quarted lengthwise

Place one slice of jalepeno in the middle of the breast meat.
