1 sliced onion
2cups Bread Crumbs
Savory (to Taste)
1/4cup Melted Margarine
1 Onion (chopped)
1tsp. Dried Onion Soup Mix
Clean duck and drain. Mix stuffing and fill duck. Place in a roasting pan (note some people add stips of fat back over the breast. I ommit this step). Bake at 350 degrees F. after 1 Hour drain off fat from pan. Add water and onions. Cover and continue to cook until tender (45 minutes to an hour). Note: Remove the cover during the last 1/2 hour if you wish to have crisp brown skin. I remove the skin personally, but you may wish to keep it. Enjoy.

In a shallow dish or pie plate, combine:
•1 cup Parmesan cheese, freshly grated

Dip the duck breasts in an egg wash, then into the Parmesan-breadcrumb mixture.
In a heavy skillet, heat a small amount of olive oil and sear the duck until golden brown on both sides.
Place the breasts in a 9X13 glass baking dish and top each with a slice of Mozzarella cheese.
Add a small amount of olive oil to skillet and add:
•1/2 cup chopped onions
Sauté the onion until soft, then add:

Stir until heated, then pour over the duck breasts and bake at 350 degrees, uncovered, until the mixture is bubbly and the cheese is melted.
Serve with spaghetti and top with more grated Parmesan.
Delta Waterfowl Recipe of the Month:
Bacon Wrapped / Cream Cheese & Pepper Duck
Follow these steps to make the fantastic duck Carly Michie and Rob Olson cooked on Canada in the Rough. You can't go wrong with this duck, as a meal or an appetizer!
1."Butterfly" duck breasts by laying them flat and cutting them parallel to the cutting surface such that you create a generous "pocket" in the middle of the meat. Allow at least two breasts per person.
2.Marinate the meat in your favorite marinade for at least a couple hours but overnight is better. We prefer teriyaki sauce and we like to spice it up with red chili sauce or any of your favorite brand of hot sauces.
3.Spread a generous amount of cream cheese on the inside of the butterflied duck breast.
4.Slice onions and sweet peppers (or hot peppers if you want a bigger kick) very thinly and place a layer of each inside your butterflied duck breast, on top of the cream cheese.
5.Cut a pound of bacon in half, lengthwise and use these half slices to roll up the duck breast, keeping the sliced vegetables tightly tucked inside.
6.Place several toothpicks through the bacon and on either end of the duck breast to hold it all together.
7.Grill rare to medium rare for best results. Typically as soon as the bacon gets come color, the wraps are done.
