Wild Boar / Homemade Bacon Recipes

Paleo Sweet Potato Bake With Duck Or Wild Boar Bacon

Paleo Sweet Potato Bake With Duck Or Wild Boar Bacon

If you’re into the idea of pairing bacon with some sweetness but wanting to stay away from gluten, this paleo recipe is the perfect way to satisfy your craving. Serve this for the holidays or make it as a delicious side dish. I actually love having this as an easy breakfast bake. I added a tiny bit of cayenne pepper for a kick, but feel free to leave it out or substitute with red pepper flakes. A little cardamom or curry powder could be great, too. Use classic sweet potatoes or my personal favorite - Japanese purple sweet potatoes.

Wild Boar Bacon Could Be The (Not So) Secret Ingredient


If you’ve never tried our wild boar bacon before, get ready to be obsessed. Bacon is already known for being one of the most delicious foods in existence. Our wild boars roam the forests of the Southwest, foraging their natural preferred diet of roots, nuts, berries and tubers. This gives our wild boar meat a nutty, complex flavor profile that has so much depth and dimension compared to conventional pork bacon. It’s also slightly less greasy than conventional bacon and contains more vitamins and minerals.


People are always asking us about the best ways to eat wild boar. If you’re used to eating pork, the nutty and delicious flavor of wild boar meat will blow your mind. It’s so much more flavorful and satisfying than conventional pork. Customers tell us all the time that they find themselves unable to go back to eating conventional pork after trying out this meat.

In addition to the unbeatable flavor, wild boar meat offers a multitude of health benefits that blow pork out of the water. It’s lower in total fat and calories while offering more omega 3 fatty acids, vitamins and minerals. We are big believers in the advantages of eating wild meat and the nutritional profile of wild boar is a perfect example of this. Our wild boar meat is unparalleled in flavor because we work with small-scale, species specific master butchers who know how to properly process this meat.


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 Pekin 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.

  • ½ cup coconut sugar, packed
  • ⅓ cup maple syrup
  • 2 ½ cups powdered sugar
  • 2 tablespoons coconut cream
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ cup cooked wild boar or duck bacon, chopped

Instructions:



  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Prepare 2 muffin trays by either greasing them or using cupcake liners.
  2. In a mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, sea salt, cinnamon and baking powder. Set aside.
  3. In a medium mixing bowl, use a hand mixer (or a whisk if you don’t have one) and beat the butter, coconut sugar, vanilla and maple syrup until stiff peaks form.
  4. Add the eggs to the butter and sugar mixture one at a time, mixing each in individually.
  5. Slowly and gradually, add the bowl of dry ingredients to the wet ingredients. Then, add in the milk. Continue to mix just until combined. Add the finely chopped wild boar or duck bacon to the bowl and fold in with a spatula.
  6. Fill each muffin cup to approximately ¾ of the way full.
  7. Bake in the preheated oven for approximately 20 minutes, until the cupcakes are cooked through and lightly golden brown on top. When finished baking, place the cupcakes on a cooling rack.
  8. While the cupcakes are baking, prepare the frosting. Heat the butter, coconut sugar and maple syrup in a saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a boil, whisking constantly.
  9. Reduce the heat to medium-low. Continue to stir for approximately 3-4 minutes, until the coconut sugar has dissolved completely. Remove the saucepan from the heat and set aside. Leave the mixture to cool completely.
  10. When completely cool, transfer the syrup and butter mixture to a mixing bowl.
  11. Gradually add in powdered sugar, whisking constantly (or using a hand mixer). Add in the coconut cream.
  12. Add the vanilla extract and continue to mix until the frosting becomes smooth and fluffy in texture. Adjust the thickness by adding more powdered sugar or coconut cream/milk as desired. Fold in the chopped wild boar or duck bacon.
  13. Frost the cupcakes when they are completely cooled. Top with more bacon as desired.
