Duck Breast Wrapped In Bacon #CookoutWeek

For my last #CookoutWeek recipe I made something that I’ve never cooked at home before, duck.  I was so excited to receive from one of our sponsors, Maple Leaf Farms, a whole bunch of duck goodies.  Duck breasts, duck bacon, and half roasted ducks.  So it was time to get creative and I think I created a winner for sure in this duck breast wrapped in duck bacon.

While I’ve had duck many times at restaurants and really enjoy it for me it’s like fish entrees, I prefer to eat them out instead of worry about how to make them at home. But I am up for a challenge and what better place to take a shot than Cookout Week?!

For this recipe, I decided to keep it simple. As simple as it gets to WRAPPING IT IN BACON!  Make sure that the duck breasts are unthawed.  Pat each one dry then place on a rack.  Open 1 package of bacon then wrap at least 3 pieces on each breast.  You won’t use the whole package so what I did was add the bacon to the sheet that I baked these on and my family enjoyed them as an addition to the breasts. The duck bacon was amazing!  The boys raved and raved about it.

I ended up baking the breasts in the oven since Michigan weather has been kind of a pain (rain, rain, and more rain).  Preheat the oven to 375 degrees and they should be done in around 1 hour.  Next time I plan on cooking these on the grill!  But I was very happy with how these turned out without going to grill route and it gives me a way to make these all year round.

One of my favorite combinations of flavors is chicken blackberries.  Since duck has a similar flavor profile I thought a sweet sauce would be great with this.  And then it’s summer so why not heat things up a little with chili powder?  Yes!  It’s so simple.  Remove the pit from the apricots and chop.  Add the preserves, salt, red pepper and chili powder.  Done!

Check the final temperature to make sure the duck is cooked all the way through.  It should be at an internal temp of 165 degrees.  And here you are….

Memphis Hot Dogs #SundaySupper

For another Sunday Supper I actually made Michigan Hot Dogs and as I mentioned, they are not really from Michigan! I also realized there are so many different types of hot dogs! One that looks especially good was the Memphis Hot Dog.  Not only is it wrapped in bacon it’s also a specialty of a place that I really enjoy visiting.

My husband and I visited the Memphis/Tunica area this March for a small trip before we moved into our new house.  While traveling my husband loves to visit area Costco’s.  I keep joking that he needs to get a punch card of locations so that he can mark them off his bucket list.  What was really exciting though was right next to the Costco was….a Brand New IKEA!  It was kismet considering that in just a few weeks were were moving.  Of course I also needed to pick up a few jars of lingonberries too!  Enough about the trip let’s get to the recipe.

Since we do not have a grill I made these in the oven.  The bacon came out nice and crisp!  Take the hot dogs, I use Nathan’s because they are the best, and wrap a piece of bacon around each one.  Place on a greased pan then cook in a preheated 375 degree oven for 12 minutes.  Now put the hot dogs under the broiler of your oven for 1 minute, turn them then broil for one minute more.

Once they are done add them to the buns.  Top off with chopped green onions, cheddar cheese and some Memphis Style BBQ Sauce.  I used my sauce recipe since it is on the vinegary side, which is what Memphis Style BBQ sauces are based on.  And here you are…..
