Possible duck or goose burger

Postby Beretta_Is_Betta » Tue Jul 14, 2009 10:14 am

So im thinking of making some duck or goose burger does anyone have a good recomendation on the ratio of duck to beef so that i get enough fat to mak the burgers stick well together. I was thinking if i had two pounds of duck/goose i would use 1 pound of beef. aside form that i was wondering if you guys had any other ideas as far as toppings i.e grilled onioins, peppers jalepenos, obviously bacon, or cheese options, swiss pepperjack......let me know what you guys think or what you have tried im looking for somehting a little new and different.

I have never made burgers but plenty of salami and other sausage. It all depends on how fatty the meat is your mixing it with. I try to get about 20 percent fat.

Load it, check it, quick - rewrite it,
Plug it, play it, burn it

definitely mix in some pork and some bacon to get the fat content up....couple of eggs and some bread crumbs...season to taste.

I would mix the duck with 80/20 ground beef. about half the beef to the amount of duck you have. So like you said one pound beef for every 2 pounds duck. Personnally i dont put any egg or bread crumbs in burgers. If you have enough fat in already you shouldnt need anymore "binders" such as egg or breadcrumbs. Your making burgers not meatloaf. However you make it let me know how it turns out...ive never even thought about making burgers with duck, but it sounds amazing.

The other thing you can do is to make it into "duck salad", like ham salad or egg salad. Cook the duck breast. Run it through a grinder. Mix with relish, onion, boiled egg; what ever you want. Spread it on a bun and serve with a slice of onion and one of cheese. When I was guiding I'd bring these to the blind and warm them on a propane heater-stove combo. The clients went nuts over them. Nice way to eat duck if you don't really care for duck.

I don't do this anymore because I don't shoot enough ducks. Back in those days we were.

I would mix one pound ground pork with the duck meat. Then chop up some peppers and chedder and mix together. They are great on the grill. I also do this with ground deer too.

Agree entirely, ground bacon makes everything good! We get a batch made at the meat processor with spring snow geese every year, and it's also great in spaghetti and chili. For burgers, I like to add chopped green onions (sometime a package of lipton onion soup mix powder) and shredded cheese before making patties. It's good stuff.
