There's the typical poppers with cream cheese, jalapeno and bacon. Those are always a crowd pleaser. Not my recipe but I'm gonna try doing some with a piece of pineapple and honey-sriracha dipping sauce. So,
1. dove breast with pineapple wrapped in bacon.
2. grill

Honey-Sriracha Dipping Sauce
Ingredients
½ cup honey
1 Tbsp. Sriracha, or to taste
1 tsp. soy sauce
Juice of one lime

We dice the breasts and lightly sauté them with butter garlic and onions and then mix them into Mexican corn bread mix. Cook just like cornbread and serve with gravy.....

Cut in half and seed out Jalapeños. Put breast filet in half jalapeño wrapping with bacon. One toothpick is enough to keep it together.

I like to let the dove marinade in shinier bock while I prep. By cutting green bell peppers into thin strips and cut up some smoked gouda cheese, then wrap the dove breast around the pepper and cheese roll up in half a slice of bacon then sprinkle a mixture a McCormick Montreal steak seasoning and Webbers steak and chop seasoning and cook over a hickory fire. I promise you it's bomb

Heres another that I have saved off to try - like most, it's not my original recipe.

Hot Fried Birds (serves 4)
12 whole doves, plucked and gutted
1 cup buttermilk
kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
2 cups all-purpose flour
oil or lard, for frying
3 tablespoons unsalted butter
4 tablespoons honey
4 garlic cloves, finely chopped
3 tablespoons hot sauce
4 thinly sliced jalapeños
1/4 cup fresh herb leaves, such as parsley or marjoram

Halve the birds by cutting down one side of the breastbone and through the ribs with a sharp, heavy knife. Repeat on the opposite side, effectively removing the breastbone. Soak the halves in buttermilk for 4 to 12 hours in the refrigerator.

Remove the birds from the buttermilk, season well with salt and pepper, and dredge in flour. Shake off the excess flour and refrigerate them for at least half an hour.
Heat 4 inches of oil to 375 degrees in a fryer or large pot.

Melt the butter, then combine it with the honey, garlic, and hot sauce in a large bowl.
Fry the birds in batches until golden brown and crisp, 3 or 4 minutes. Drain well on paper towels.

Toss the fried birds with the melted-butter mixture, add the jalapeños and herbs, and transfer to a plate. Serve immediately.

Other than the popper route I'll save some and dice up and use as the meat in dirty rice. I've also done that dove pasta recipe in the recipe section on here that was really good.

I coat mine with Olive Oil and then sprinkle them with some Chef Paul Prudhomme's meat magic seasoning and let sit for an hour or so. Then I do the usual and wrap them up with jalapeno's and bacon and place them on the pit. Right before they are done I put a dab of honey with some bulls eye BBQ sauce.

Here is a crazy one that we accidentally found when we ran out of bacon.

Marinate in Italian dressing for a couple of hours, dredge in 50/50 flour and crushed crackers, FRY, and salt while still hot.

Gives a great zing and is more flavorful than the traditional milk / egg batter.

You can use dove in place of many meats. Chicken fry, grilled, poppers, etc. The main thing is don't over cook it. If you keep it to a maximum of medium rare - medium temperature, you will always have great eats. It will be tender, juicy, and have a wonderful flavor. It's a great meat. Just like most game animals, it is so much better than chicken, unless you cook the crap out of it. Then a lot of people say taste like chicken or liver, which has a lot to do with the fact that you have to cook the crap out of yard bird (chicken).

If you want to get fancy, you can cook Bad Day Dove Porcini Risotto.

1 tbls butter
3 cloves of minced garlic
1 white onion, diced
1 cup of arborio rice
1/2 cup white wine
1/2 cup mushrooms, diced
4 cups of Beef stock or you can make your own dove stock from the dove bones
4 dove breasts, chopped
1/2 stick of additional butter
1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan

Melt the butter in a large pan and sauté the onion for 4 minutes. Add the garlic and cook for 30 seconds or until fragrant. Add in the mushrooms and cook an additional minute. Add the rice and stir until coated with butter, about 30 seconds. Add the wine and stir for 1 minute. Place the dove into the mixture and add the broth little by little and keep stirring until the rice absorbs the broth and becomes soft. Stir in the additional butter until creamy. Finally stir in the Parmesan and salt and pepper to tatse. Enjoy!

If you want, add a bit of truffle oil once it's finished for some zing!

My two favorites are:

fillet the two breasts out of the bones, then toss in flour, egg, flour, and chicken fry. Make country gravy from the oil drippings and serve over white rice or mashed potatoes.

Or fillet out the meat, and season with mixture of equal parts sea salt, fresh cracked pepper, and garlic powder, then saute in butter until JUST done. They're tender and flavorful cooked this way, really good.

Google "Cecilia Chiang lettuce wraps". Substitute a bunch of dove breast and chicken thighs (skin on for fat). Finely mince both. Then make according to recipe. It was originally made completely with squab. It is a great way to incorporate game birds into a more refined meal. Also a great alternative to cream cheese/bacon/jalapeño, chicken fried with gravy and rice etc. Those are all great but this is completely different take.

If you are looking for new and different ways to cook game, I would suggest looking to cultures who have historically had high poverty. Think Southeast Asia, China and India. They can take the worst cuts of lean game meat and season and cook it in ways that render it fantastic.

Do you use a knife to get the meat off the breast are do you just use your thumb. Looks great. I'm ignorant of this way to cook dove meat.

just run your thumb against the breast bone. Make sure you get the tenderloin. Dove is very lean. You either have to eat it medium rare or add fat via other meats if you want to cook it past medium rare. Mince the dove and chicken meat.

I do the same thing with dove or duck in place of pork liver in boudin.

Love the doves, but tried a new method a few days ago that is outstanding. Familiar with Sous Vide? Sounds gay (French "under vacuum"), but I have had great success with everything from backstraps to lesser venison cuts, wild pig ribs, ducks, turkey legs, you name it. If unfamiliar or without the equipment, check out the Field and Stream article link where all you need is an ice chest, ziplock and thermometer.

http://www.fieldandstream.com/articl...ison-sous-vide

I did the dove fillets for 5 min at 140 degrees with a little Dale's in the bag. They came out rare and hit the cast iron skillet for about 30-45 sec on each side for a sear. Perfect med rare, virtually zero moisture loss. My kids (oldest 6) ate an entire plate less than 30 minutes after a full lunch. Proud dad.

Do your popers w the jalapeno stuffed w cream cheese and chedar sprinkled on top of that. Then lay on your dove breast wrap w a medium thick cut of bacon. Grill em till the bacon is crispy. I sprinkle on ragin blaze on the bacon while it's grilling. Grill on low heat for 30 mins to avoid flare ups
