Duck Poppers a la Fulgham



  • A limit of ducks
  • Worcestershire sauce
  • Honey
  • Tony Chachere's Original Creole Seasoning
  • Sliced jalapeno pepper: medium or hot
  • 2 packs of thick sliced bacon
  • Cream cheese


1. Slice duck breasts into 1/4- to 1/2-inch thick slices and place in a large plastic bowl.
2. Lightly cover the duck pieces with Worcestershire sauce.
3. Sprinkle some Tony's on the duck pieces.
4. Put them in the refrigerator for 1-3 hours.

Preparation Before Cooking

1. Remove duck pieces from refrigerator, cover them in the bowl with honey, and stir with a spoon.
2. Take bacon out of pack and cut the slices in half, take jalapeno peppers out of jar for easy access, and take cream cheese out of package.
3. First take a half slice of bacon and place on cutting board, then put one of the pieces of the duck on one end of the bacon, take a baby spoon dip of cream cheese and one jalapeno pepper and place it on the end with the duck.
4. Take the end of the bacon that the ingredients are on and roll the bacon around it. Use toothpicks to hold the ingredients in place.

On The Grill

1. Place on grill over low heat.
2. Keep a glass of water handy in case the bacon drippings cause the grill to flame up.
3. Turn as needed until bacon is fully cooked.
4. Take off the grill and enjoy.
