I love duck (you know, the kind on my plate), but it has always been roasted or sauteed. This weekend, my friend from Nelson All Natural shared a new product with me, Ground Duck. I have to be honest, I was a bit hesitant. Duck is a strong flavor, and tends to be greasy (which is a good thing, really).
So I looked at it for a few days, and last night, decided to make duck sliders.
OH MY.....OH MY!!!!! Incredibly delicious - if you have ever tasted ostrich, like that, but moister. Very similar to beef, so much more flavorful than turkey or chicken. I would think you could use it anywhere you use ground meat, but suspect that I will stick to sliders because that flavor is just magnificent (and just as delicious the next day warmed up).
1 lb ground duck meat
1/2 t garlic power
1/2 t onion powder or dehydrated onions
salt and pepper to taste
Small rolls (we used Hawaiian Kings)
Fixings to taste (lettuce, bacon, cheese, etc)
Mix all ingredients together (no filler or binder needed with this!).
Form into small patties.
Grill until just done (don't overcook them).
Serve on rolls - I ate mine with just a little mustard, mayo and lettuce. Dave ate his with bacon, grilled onions and cheese.
