At the dorms we are limited on how much cooking we can do, with no access to a grill. One of our favorites this season was brining duck, then putting it in the crock pot with baby rays and slices of lemon. it was pretty much pot roast and was great on sandwiches and we could eat good for a couple days.
We also did a duck alfredo that was actually DELICIOUS, but i don't have the exact recipe. It was pretty much how you would make any chicken alfredo but with duck, and some tastefully simple seasonings that helped hide the game flavor.

and of course, you can use up a whole load of early season teal by making some teal poppers with cream cheese, jalapeños, bacon and some munster cheese melted on top.

I grill a bunch early, then roast em whole... stir fries... quesadillas... my office loves poppers but I think they get old fast. Pretty much anything if you treat it right and cook to medium rare.

Country Fried, or shred it up with BBQ sauce just like pulled pork, or Philly Duck Steak Sandwiches, or marinated then grilled with bacon around it are my favorites.

We usually marinate them over night, then wrap them in bacon. Grill til medium rare. Everything is good with bacon.

We also do the jalapeño popper style, those are very good also.

I would love to try the quesadilla style.

The pulled pork style are very good. I do like the Philly too. Tough to beat the teal wraps with bacon n Italian dressing though. Great hors devoirs! I've made kabobs with veggies, stir fry, fajitas, quesadillas, you name it. Smoked whole birds are pretty damn good too. If I can get enough in a short time, it goes to the locker for sticks n sausage with pepper jack cheese!

My wife's favorite is to cut in strips, marinate in ranch dressing and horseradish and cook in a skillet or the grill on aluminum foil, but that is her favorite with spring snows.

Another good one in a crock pot is goose and noodles. Damn, I'm hungry again !

Gumbo, takes a lot of ducks, tastes great and freezes well. Duck and Goose summer sausage and brats. I also grind fowl with some good suet for burgers. I have some other recipes as well. Sweet duck or goose is a family favorite. I only roast woodies and fat teal.

Cube the meat up and use it your chili . Let is simmer a while, the slow cook and tomato juice will break down the meat and make it really tender.

Default Re: cooking Duck

I've always had it like this.

Fillet off duck breasts.
Dash of oil, one onion.
Flour the duck breasts, line pan with oil. Brown the duck up a bit.
Reduce to simmer throw onions on the top and put of low until the onions have lost their form and are limp.
While that's going on cook some wild rice.
Eat them together and enjoy. If done right it tastes awesome.

I take a picture with the ducks, then throw them in the ditch..
No really, anyone who does not enjoy eating duck needs to learn how to cook. Its like any whole meat, you wouldn't just chuck a steak in a frying pan and expect it to be great. I smoked around 50 duck breasts last week for 2 hours, then sliced it thin and put it in the crock pot with BBQ sauce for another 5 hours on low heat. I brought it to our work x mas party, and people who have not eaten duck really enjoyed. I didn't come home with leftovers.

My all time favorite. For 2-3 days soak in gallon of apple juice or cider, 3-4 cups of brown sugar (you want a lot), salt, and what ever else you want. When your ready to grill butterfly them and put pepperjack cheese in it and fold it back over. Rub it in brown sugar, wrap in bacon, rub it again in brown sugar and then grill to medium rare to were its still a little red and juicy.. Best damn duck and goose I've ever eaten!
