Bacon & Muenster Duck Breast
This yummy starter lasted about 2 minutes in my kitchen!
4 duck breasts
5-6 thick sliced bacon - cut in half then long ways so each piece becomes 4 thin strips
pickled jalapeno slices
16-20 thick square slices of Muenster cheese
chicken or pork rub spice
Start by slicing duck breasts longways into thin strips. Then lightly tenderize with a meat mallet. Some of the wider slices can be cut again to make 2 strips. Marinate overnight in a bowl with sprite and brown sugar.
After removing duck from marinade, coat one side of each strip with pork or chicken rub, lay on top of a bacon slice, place a jalapeno at one end and roll into duck and bacon - securing with a toothpick. Place on a foil lined baking pan. (Make sure your pan has sides to keep in drippings).
Broil 6-7 minutes or until edges of duck meat are browned lightly. Top with a cheese square and broil 30 seconds. Serve hot!
