Goose Rolls

This recipe was given to me from a hunting buddy who really enjoys eating wild game. We hunt geese a lot together (see man-law-violation). The thing about this recipe, it’s so outstanding. People who’ve eaten geese before and walked away saying,”Why?” are hard pressed to believe you could ever make it taste good. WRONG. This tasty recipe has had anyone who has ever tried it coming back for multiple servings. I made the mistake of taking a container of these rolls to a landowner who allows me to hunt geese on his place. He doesn’t get too excited about hunting geese. After he cooked up the goose rolls, he told me, “I might have to take up goose hunting, those things were restaurant quality!” I fear I may have “shot myself in the foot” and lost my hunting spot…

Anyhow, give this a try, you won’t regret it. Geese are more than just flying jerky strips!


Teriyaki sauce (best is made from scratch, equal parts soy sauce and sugar, smashed/sliced ginger root {thumb size} and smashed/sliced 6 garlic cloves, tablespoon sesame oil)

Sweet round onion

Sweet bell peppers (yellow, orange, green)

Jalapeno cheese (can substitute pepper jack)

Thick sliced bacon


Slice 1/4″ thick pieces of goose breast across the grain and follow any feathers in the meat to remove any shot pellets. You can pound it with a mallet to tenderize it. Take all of the sliced meat and soak it in teriyaki sauce overnight.

Assemble rolls:

Slice peppers and onion lengthwise.

Slice cheese into 1/2″ sticks.

Layout bacon strip, place goose strip across bacon followed by bell peppers and slices of sweet onion and place cheese stick in center. Roll bacon around everything and try to center cheese in middle. Skewer the roll with two toothpicks to hold everything together. Make a whole pan of them and grill them on the barbecue. Watch heat to safeguard from bacon grease catching on fire. Keep a water pistol handy. Goose cooks fast and can be pulled from the grill in 10-15 minutes. Serve and enjoy. The cheese will ooze out from the center and blend with the teriyaki goose and bacon for a wonderful flavor. Best eaten with a fork and knife and a glass of your favorite red wine.

Preparing Goose rolls starts long before the kitchen

Grill on med-hi flame and close the lid. If you see lots of smoke, it’s likely a grease fire from the bacon dripping. Fight back any flare ups with a water pistol. It’s like a second hunt…
