Duck Burger with Sweet Potato Crinkle Fries


The other day I mentioned my beautiful little crinkle sweet potato fries, here I have incorporated them into my duck burger. I grew up with a family of hunters (spoiler I have an upcoming post involving a recent goose hunt with my dad). Eating a variety of wild animal was not uncommon: deer, geese, ducks, pheasants, squirrels, wild turkeys, fresh water fish like bass, frog legs. Today I have taken one of my dad’s most recent kills: a duck. How about making a duck burger? Here is the result.

Duck Burger

  • 2 duck breasts
  • 2 tbsp duck fat
  • Sea salt
  • 2 slices bacon
  • sweet potato fries

Let’s Make it Happen: Start with the sweet potatoes. Skins and slice with a crinkle cutter. Season with salt. Bake @ 400 for 45 minutes. Now back to the duck. Render the duck fat (cut skin and fat, cover with 1/2 cup water. Boil for an hour. Strain, put in a mason jar, and refrigerate). Cut the duck. Place in a food processor with the fat. Season with sea salt. Fry in a skillet. Place on a slice of lettuce and bacon. Top with some sweet potato fries and enjoy!
