Game of Thrones Dragon Eggs Jalapeño Poppers

Ingredients for 24 Dragon Eggs

  • Filling
    • 1lb lean ground bison (or your choice of protein)
    • 1/2 cup diced onion, raw
    • 2 teaspoons garlic (powder)
    • 1 tablespoon smoked paprika (to make it fiery red)
    • pinch of sea salt & pepper
    • 1/2 cup frozen spinach, completely thawed and SQUEEZED to remove excess water
    • 8oz Greek yogurt cream cheese (or reduced fat cream cheese)
  • 12 jalapeños (halved and seeds removed)
  • 12 slices (beef) bacon (or your choice of bacon)


Step 1

Set oven to 420F.

Step 2

Remove the seeds from the jalapeños.

Step 3

Set a nonstick skillet on medium heat. Once hot, spray with a little olive oil, then add the bison and onion. Chop up the meat as it cooks, then sprinkle in garlic, smoked paprika and sea salt & pepper.

Step 4

Once the meat has fully cooked and is no longer pink, drain the meat (if necessary – though it shouldn’t be since it’s lean) and add it to a large bowl along with spinach and cream cheese. Mix.

Step 5

Use a tablespoon to stuff each jalapeño half with the filling. Repeat. Slice bacon down the middle (vertically) to create 2 thin pieces.

Step 6

Wrap ONE slice around the piece of bacon. Repeat.

Step 7

Place the poppers on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and bake for 15 to 20 minutes, until you see the edges of the bacon began to crisp.

Step 8

Allow them to cool slightly before enjoying!
