How To Make The Most Epic Duck Bacon Sandwiches Ever
You might be familiar with our incredible wild boar bacon, and we are excited to announce our latest bacon offering that we know you’re going to love just as much. We now carry duck bacon, because who could possibly say no to two delicious, ethically sourced and healthy varieties of bacon? Duck bacon is much lower in fat than conventional pork bacon, and it has amazing flavor and succulent texture. This sandwich is great for breakfast or lunch and will leave you feeling oh so satisfied. And if wild boar bacon is what you have on hand rather than duck, it would certainly be a scrumptious substitute.
Curate The Best Ingredients For Amazing Sandwiches
The key to a really delicious sandwich is for every ingredient to be of the best quality possible. We’ve already got the bacon taken care of for you, but I can’t stress enough the importance of really good bread. My personal favorite is locally baked sourdough - nothing compares to the flavor and fluffy texture of slow fermented, freshly baked bread. It’s the difference between a really good sandwich and a memorably drool worthy sandwich. Don’t stop there with the premium ingredients, though. Get heirloom tomatoes from the farmers market, if the season permits. Good quality mayonnaise is extremely important, too. The flavor of lower quality mayo just can’t compete. Homemade is even better, if time permits.
If you’d like to add a probiotic boost, sauerkraut adds tangy flavor and tons of health benefits. It’s one of those things where you’re either into the flavor, or you’re not. If you like kimchi, that could be a great addition as well. Or leave it off entirely. The one thing I certainly do not recommend leaving off is the bread and butter pickles. These sweet, tangy pickles are so perfect paired with the bacon, that it would be a shame to omit them from the recipe. You could substitute sliced cornichons (or served on the side as a garnish) for a similar flavor. Further customize your sandwich by mixing some sriracha into the mayonnaise if you like a little bit of kick.
Duck Bacon: Your New Favorite Indulgence
Duck bacon is actually meat cut from the breast of the duck where there is a large amount of fat. Nonetheless, it’s incredibly similar in texture and flavor to more familiar varieties of bacon. Our ducks are raised in quiet, spacious barns on a small group of farms in rural Indiana. They are often raised by Mennonite or Amish farmers, and are lovingly cared for on family farms. They are White Perks ducks, bred for their tender, mild flavored meat that is preferred by most people with an Americanized palette. This duck meat easily adapts to a wide range of flavor profiles and cuisines.
