Maple Bacon Wrapped Dove Breasts

Pairing apple and bacon with your dove harvest creates a delicious taste treat.



Lay a slice of maple-flavored bacon on a platter and place at one end a dove breast.

Place a slice of golden delicious apple on the dove breast.
Roll the bacon around the meat and apple and secure with a toothpick.

Grill the breasts over medium heat approximately 10-15 minutes, or until the bacon is cooked, turning frequently.

Serve as appetizer or entrée.
