Asian Duck Burgers

I received a cookbook for Christmas filled with recipes for burgers.  So I adapted one of the recipes to meet our taste preferences and for some ground duck I received from Maple Leaf Farms.  This recipe for Asian Duck Burgers pairs the great flavors of ginger with the duck to make a great tasting burger.  I served this burger with some sweet potato fries and it was a big hit. 

Ingredients: 1 pound ground Duck, 1 half cup French's Fried Onions, 1 egg, 1/2 cup finely chopped water chestnuts, 1/4 cup dry bread crumbs, 3 T. soy sauce, 1 T. Sweet Chili Sauce, 2 tsp. ground ginger, 6 sandwich buns.
Directions: Combine duck, onions, egg, water chestnuts, bread crumbs, soy sauce, sweet chili sauce and ginger in a large bowl. 
Shape into 4 patties. (I made mine small and made 6 patties.)
To cook your burgers you can either broil patties 6 inches from heat, or grill for 10 minutes until no longer pink.  I choose to use our George Foreman Grill as we like to use it during the winter months.  It worked great and the duck meat was not nearly as greasy as I thought it would be.

These burgers would taste great topped with some lettuce and tomato, and will definitely add a little variety to your grill.

This recipe was linked to Hunk of Meat Monday.

Maple Leaf Farms did provide me with free product to review, but no other compensation was recieved for this post and the recipe and photos shared here are my own.
