Crumbed Duck Sausage

Cook time 30 minutes
Servings 4-6


1kg diced duck meat – preferably Maryland
30g dried cranberries (or any other dried berry) finely chopped
1 tsp white pepper
1 tsp all spice
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 cup sage leaves roughly chopped
2 sprigs of thyme, stem removed
1/2 cup orange juice freshly squeezed
1 tsp orange zest
3 cups panko breadcrumbs

Crumbed Duck Sausage


Place diced duck into food processor and pulse until meat is finely diced

Add dry spices, fresh herbs, orange juice and zest and pulse until mix represents a course paste

Measure meat to approx. 80gm and roll into a sausage shape. If you find that the meat is too sticky at this stage, place mix into freezer for 30mins and try again (you can do this the day before)

Coat each sausage well in panko breadcrumbs and fry in batches. Be careful not to overcrowd the pan, you want the crumbs to be crispy and golden.

Serve on a bed of sweet potato mash with a simple red wine jus
