Key ingredients for these duck burgers:
- Ground Duck Breast — Duck is one of my favorite proteins, but it’s hard to have on a budget. Enter ground duck burgers! They give you that luscious, gamey duck flavor without the fine dining price.
- Maple Syrup — I use this vegan sweetener in everything. It gives a special sweet but smokey flavor to the duck.
- Soy Sauce — I love the smokey, savory flavor soy sauce brings to any burger patty. You can always swap for coconut aminos or your favorite burger marinade, too.
- Salt and pepper
The equipment you’ll need to make these burgers:
- A wide, strong spatula to keep your duck patties in tact when flipping
- A meat thermometer to check your burger temps
Tips and variations for these burgers:
- To make these burgers gluten-free or paleo, use coconut aminos instead of soy sauce
- These burgers store well in the fridge in an air tight container for up to 5 days
- If your patties aren’t sticking together, place them in the fridge for 20-30 minutes before cooking them
- I don’t recommend cooking these burgers on the bbq. The patties won’t stick together well
- Keep your toppings simple. These duck burgers are so tender and full of flavor on their own, you only need a few garnishes for the perfect burger
What to serve with these burgers:
- My favourite Asian Coleslaw
- Healthy Potato Salad
- Delicious Broccoli Salad
- Perfectly cooked French fries
Frequently asked questions:
When you’re working with ground beef, you have a range of temps to choose from. With duck, you want the internal temperature to be 165 degrees F. However, if you prefer your duck medium to medium rare, cook it to 135-140 degrees F.
I keep it simple with a little mayo, lettuce, and onions. You can always add cheese, bacon, pickles, more veggies, or a special homemade sauce to perfectly complement your flavors.
Keep your ground duck breast in the fridge until it’s time to make the patties. The cold helps everything stay together while you cook them. If you want to form your burgers in advance, pop them back in the fridge until it’s time to grill.
