Duck-Stuffed Peppers with Garlic and Italian Herbs #sponsor

Ackk! I never realized that was still sitting in my drafts folder. Sorry.


Last month I hosted a 10-day blogging event for which Maple Leaf Farms Duck and Gourmet Garden Herbs & Spiceswere sponsors. While I made this during that event, I haven't had the chance to share the recipe until now. Feel free to use whatever ground meat and herbs that you have.


Ingredients
  • 1 pound ground duck (I used Maple Leaf Farms Duck)
  • 1 leek, trimmed and diced
  • 1 T minced garlic (I used Gourmet Garden Herbs & Spices)
  • splash of olive oil
  • 1/2 C organic chicken stock
  • 2 C cooked rice
  • 1 T basil (I used Gourmet Garden)
  • 1 t oregano (I used Gourmet Garden)
  • 1 beaten egg
  • 1 C shredded parmesan cheese, divided
  • 6 to 8 peppers, depends on the size of the peppers



Procedure
In a large, flat-bottom pan, saute the leeks and garlic in a splash of olive oil until they soften and begin to caramelize. Add in the ground duck and cook completely. Pour in the chicken stock and bring to a boil. Then add in the cooked rice, beaten egg, and 1/2 C shredded parmesan.

Wash, dry, and core you peppers, leaving the body of the pepper intact. Gently stuff the peppers with the rice mixture, pressing gently with a spoon to get rid of any air pockets. Place stuffed peppers in a rimmed baking dish. Divide the remaining 1/2 C shredded parmesan among the peppers, pressing lightly into the filling.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Drizzle with olive oil and over with foil. Bake for 50 minutes, then uncover and bake for an additional 10 minutes.

Serve hot with a crisp, cool salad on the side.


Thanks, again, Maple Leaf Farms Duck and Gourmet Garden Herbs & Spices* - just two of last month's #10DaysofTailgate sponsors - for ingredients used in this recipe.


*Full Disclosure: I received ground duck from Maple Leaf Farms Duck and 1 cooler full of herbs by Gourmet Garden Herbs & Spices for participating in last month's #10DaysofTailgate. Feel free to use whatever ground meat and fresh herbs you have on-hand. All comments are 100 % accurate and 100% my own.

Quick Pickled Red Onions and Radishes

If you've been reading my blog for even a short amount of time, you probably know how much I love to pickle things. I was just telling a friend you can pickle - with vinegar - or you can ferment - with salt - for similar delicious effect. The latter has digestive benefits and I love to do that, but when I need that pop of sour flavor quickly, I whip up quick pickles that are ready in as little as a day or two. I've Pickled Blueberries , Pickled Asparagus , Pickled Cranberries , Pickled Pumpkin , and even Pickled Chard Stems ! This I did last night for an upcoming recipe challenge that requires I include radishes. Ummmm...of course I'm pickling them! Ingredients  makes 1 quart jar radishes, trimmed and sliced organic red onions, peeled and thinly sliced (I used a mandolin slicer) 3/4 C vinegar (I used white distilled vinegar) 3/4 C water 3 T organic granulated sugar 1 T salt (I used some grey sea salt) 6 to 8 grinds of black pepper Proce
