Jalapeño Wild Rice Waterfowl Brats

7 posts in this topic

I had a bunch of ducks/geese from the past weekends so I decided to do up a couple different batches out of my "comfort zone". Last night I stuffed a 5 lb batch of fresh goose brats and grilled up a couple tonight.  I think I hit a home run on this one! Easily one of my favorite brats, although like I said I never got too crazy in the past.

I used 1 cup of wild rice (which turns into about 4 after cooking) and 3 jalapeños (partially de-seeded and de-veined) for a 5 pound batch of roughly 60:40 goose to pork. I probably could have scaled the rice back a bit, but it's not overwhelming.

Previously I've only done jerky with waterfowl, but I know I'll be doing alot more sausage now as well.

Sounds like a good use of goose meat, would really like to try one of them. :)

Sounds great!  I assume there was at least salt & pepper in the mix, too?

Yep! Probably should've mentioned that. I just used my regular brat mix that I use on venison brats, but added the cooked wild rice and jalapeños for a little extra flavor.

Sounds like an excellent combo! Did you season/marinate the goose meat beforehand?

I actually cheated and used a pre-mixed brat seasoning packet with about 60% goose meat and 40% pork roast. Ground it twice through the coarse plate and mixed in the wild rice and chopped jalapenos prior to stuffing.

That's not cheating, I think that's what most of us do.  I'd like to try and come up with my own recipes - maybe when I retire (I'm only 38 years old)
