These Maple Bacon Duck Burgers rock and literally take about 15 minutes to make.
Serves: 4
  • 1 pound pasture-raised ground duck
  • 2 slices nitrate-/nitrite-free bacon
  • ½ tablespoon 100% pure maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon Braggs liquid aminos (or coconut aminos)
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon grass-fed ghee (or other cooking fat)
  • ½ purple onion, thinly sliced
  • 4 slices grass-fed pepper jack cheese (optional)
  • 4 thick slices organic tomato
  • Organic arugula and mustard for serving
  1. Finely chop 2 slices of bacon and add to a bowl with ground duck, ½ tablespoon maple syrup, 1 tablespoon liquid aminos, and 1 teaspoon black pepper. Mix with hands until well combined, and form into 4 patties.
  2. Melt 1 tablespoon ghee in a skillet over medium. Add sliced onions and saute. Set aside.
  3. Add burgers to the skillet and cook until browned, about 3 minutes. Flip. If using pepper jack cheese, add a slice to each burger. Cook until done, about 3-4 more minutes.
  4. Add arugula and a thick slice of tomato to each serving plate. Top with a duck patty, grilled onions, and serve with mustard.

  1. Two points.
    1. Very interesting to see the aminos in the receipt. I don´t think I have seen that before. How does it affect the taste ?
    2. To get the sugars in the onions to caramelize they need to be slow cooked over medium to low heat for rather long time (approx 1 hour or more). Make sure you don´t fry them with to high heat. It sounds like 15 minutes to get the onions ready is to short.
    PS. Great show.

  2. First time I have had ground duck and WOW, this was DELICIOUS!!! Tonight may have been the first but definitely not the last!
