 Bacon Duck Burger Recipe

Recently we shared some of the benefits to raising Muscovy Ducks, and their meat is definitely a bonus point. It is a very lean meat and is more of a red meat, unlike other ducks. Because of this, you can actually eat muscovy duck meat medium, which makes it the perfect meat for steaks and burgers. Today I am sharing my favorite Bacon Duck Burger Recipe!

I like to add bacon to the grinding process of my duck burger recipe because the meat is very lean on its own. The bacon adds the necessary fat to ensure that the burger does not dry out. Plus, who does not love bacon? If you want a leaner duck burger, than you can always omit the bacon.

We take all of the off cuts of the duck and grind them using our KitchenAid grinder attachment. When we grind the duck meat, we also grind the bacon into it. That way everything is evenly dispersed throughout the meat.

After everything is ground up, we add in all of the dry ingredients and the eggs and form the patties.

I like to cook our bacon duck burgers on the grill, and because they can be eaten medium, I only cook them for 10-15 minutes total.

Once grilled, we love loading up the burgers with all of the works. Lettuce, tomato, onion, and of course, avocado!
