anyone can do it.

wrap seasoned duck breasts (you can cajun inject them if you want) w/ bacon. under the bacon, put cream cheese or pepper jack or whatever cheese you prefer, and some jalopenio. use a tooth pick to hold together.

cook on the pit, when the bacon is done, it's ready, about medium i guess.

that's basically how i do it or some variation of it, and i'm no chef. it comes out pretty good though.


daffy will chime in though shortly.

My all time favorite involves one slice of plain white toast, dry, one egg (chicken or bald eagle) over easy, and one (2 if its a little duck) breasts cut into chunks and fried with a little butter untill all surfaces are brown. Place the egg on the toast and the duck on the egg and dig in. It dosent sound like much but for a college kid thats a pretty hearty breakfast.

ok so here is an odd one. i do love the bacon wrapped duck, but you can only eat it so many times before it gets old. in know this is a dying art to cooking and most people i know don't even know what it is, but several years back my mother who cans (pressure cooks) quite abit of different things decided to try a few duck breasts. all she does is chunk the meat up fills the can three quarters full and puts a pinch of salt in it. then she pressure cooks it. for how long i couldn't tell you, but if you are interested pm and i will find out. i thought she done went bat sh!t crazy on me when she told me she wanted to do it, but to my suprise it is unbelievable. the meat tastes exactly like roast beef, and thats no exageration. there is no game flavor at all and the meat pulls apart just like roast beef. you can make sandwiches, stew, gravy, or just about anything with it that requires beef, or you can just eat it out of the can as a snack. no seasoning needed. everyone i know that has tried it can't believe the taste and many of them don't even hunt. the most amazing thing about it is that anything pressure cooked doesn't have to be refrigerated and it last until the seal is broken. so it is perfect to through in the duck boat and throw on the heater to warm up. its almost an instant meal. in my fifteen years of waterfowling. this is by far the best way i have found to cook duck or goose.

Duck breast, pounded out and stuffed with cheese and peppers wrapped tightly in thin cut bacon, yellow wax beans and reheated fried rice from a huge lunch order.

I have 4 kids and one on the way, Daffy. Most nights are about a quick dinner and a quick clean up. To not have to wash another pan and utensils from cooking a side is a bonus.


I guess yellow beans aren't common in your neck of the woods? Maybe it was the yellowish light being cast by the overhead light? I have no idea what looks funny, but I can assure you it looked and tasted delicious.

Ill start by saying that I love em just about anyway i make but here is my fave.



1 whole white onion
10 cloves of garlic(smashed)
salt and pepper
1/2 stick butter
fume blanc
portabella mushrooms


slice the onion so you have 2" pieces, smash the 10 cloves dont dice and cut the portabella into 1" cubes(they will shrink). duck, butter and garlic, onion, mushrooms and wine into skillet. For larger birds you will want to cook the duck, garlic butter and wine for a couple minutes before adding the mushrooms and onion. Serve over some rice! :beer:

8 small chicken thighs (2 to 2-1/4 lb.), skinned
3/4 cup low-calorie cranberry juice
3/4 cup fresh cranberries
2 sprigs fresh thyme
4 tsp. packed brown sugar
Fresh thyme leaves

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Coat extra-large ovenproof skillet with nonstick cooking spray. Heat over medium-high heat. Sprinkle 1/4 tsp. each salt and pepper on chicken. In hot skillet cook, meaty sides down, 5 minutes, turning once, until well-browned on both sides. Transfer skillet to oven. Roast, uncovered, 20 minutes, until chicken is no longer pink (180 degrees F).
Meanwhile, in saucepan combine juice, berries, thyme sprigs, brown sugar, and 1/4 tsp. salt. Bring to boiling. Simmer, uncovered, 15 to 20 minutes, until slightly thickened. Discard thyme sprigs. Serve chicken with sauce. Sprinkle thyme leaves.

I like this with chicken and I'm gonna try to substitue with duck and see how it is. Now I just have to shoot one...................
You may all go to hell, and I will go to Texas.

My personal fav is ultra simple, coat breast (filleted from breast bone) with some oil, hit it with garlic salt, cook at a fairly low temp in a skillet with olive oil. thats it. Ive done it like that about 100 times and I personally like the slight duck taste. Now im dying to try some of your recipes.

Question: Does anyone cook their recipes "raw"?

Cooked this in the blind the other day. Soak duck breastesess in milk over night. Make egg/milk wash. All pupose flour. Cut breast into tenders. Dredge in wash, then flour, and fry like chicken tenders. Get some, and I can't find any around here, some Jac's chipotle/rasberry sauce to dip. Awesomeness.

Duck count as of Dec 5

Mallards 28
Teal 16
Wooducks 6
Spoonies 6
Pintails 4
Greys 5
Mergansers 3

Enjoy.

Goose- I've cooked in the crockpot like roast with potatoes,carrots,onion and french onion soup mix. Taste like beef.

Duck- The duck poppers are always a favorite, I also cook duck in place of beef. I use it in fajitas and teriyaki stir-fry, slice about 1/4" thick or a little thicker, cook in teriyaki(for stir-fry) or fajita seasoning til about medium rare. Throw in your veggies and put a lid on it to steam your veggies until cooked. You may want to add a little water to make sure your meat and veggies don't dry out. Serve with your appropriate side ( rice(stir-fry) or tortillas) and fajita fixings.

For an awesome and unexpected appetizer, I like to do fried alligator tail. I found a tried and true recipe and posted it on my site here:
http://www.whoaday.com/pages/fried-alligator-tail
Also, LOVE LOVE the combination of peaches and jalapeno. Would be amazing stuffed in duck or dove breast meat

Man you guys are kill'n me in this thread. The duck wrapped in bacon and cooked on the grill is my favorite too. But I like a lot other mentioned have experimented with stuff it with all kinds of things. So far I've stuffed with mushrooms, green peppers, cream cheese, jelepino and one time I put a little slice of apple in there.
On the stuffing part one thing I've found that helps is instead of trying to wrap the duck and whatever you're stuffing it with all in the bacon, I butterfly the breast and put all my stuffings in there and then wrap it in bacon. It helps keep everything tight and maybe it's just me but it seems like the meat will absorb the flavors of all the stuffings you put in there. No question about it though, cream cheese and mushrooms are always in the mix.

Soak duck breasts in salt water for 24 hrs, then marinate in buttermilk overnight. Dry and wrap with fatty bacon. Hold bacon in place with tooth picks. Melt butter in a cup in the microwave and add garlic powder. Place breasts on hot coals, baste with garlic butter, cook 15 mins, turn and baste again, cook another 15 mins, baste again and remove. Serve with your favorite side dishes and beer.
