It’s easy to get in a roast duck rut. Try something new with these little burgers featuring ground duck.

Cook time: 5-7 minutes. Serves 8.

Ingredients:

1 lb. ground duck
1-2 tsp. chili powder
1 Tbsp. kosher salt
8 slider buns or potato dinner rolls
8 slices of your favorite cheese
pickled onions or sliced sweet pickles
mustard, ketchup, or barbecue sauce

Hint: You can prepare ground duck by adding pork fat. For every 3 ½ to 4 pounds of duck breasts, add 1 pound pork fat (ask at your supermarket meat counter).

Sprinkle chili powder and salt over ground duck and mix well with clean hands. Form the meat into patties the size of slider buns. Make a small indentation the size of a quarter in the center of each patty.

Fry or grill duck burgers on medium-high heat for 5-7 minutes for medium doneness. Toast buns and slightly melt cheese, then build your burger with your favorite condiments. Enjoy!
