Roast duck is stuffed with an apple and cornbread stuffing, before being roasted to perfection. This duck is exceptionally delicious. Serve as an alternative to the traditional Sunday lunch.
If you have no cornbread at hand, use plain breadcrumbs
My duck was 4.3 lbs. and barely had enough meat for 2 adults and 2 small kids. There were no leftovers which my husband usually takes to lunch for the next day. The apple stuffing was fantastic. I didn't peel the apples and the skins weren't even noticeable when the stuffing was cooked. I also added some poultry seasoning and celery leaves, chopped, to the stuffing before cooking. The leaves added more celery flavor and looks pretty too. I too had extra stuffing after stuffing the duck, so I put the extra in a baking dish and dotted with butter and baked for 30 min. at 350. Before I took the stuffing out of the oven, I left the stuffing on the middle rack of the oven and turned the broiler on to give the stuffing some crunchy bits. Careful not to burn. Great recipe. Thanks. - 21 Oct 2004 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I was looking for something than turkey for christmas and came upon the idea of duck. The duck turned out as excellent as the dressing which had pecans pieces added and a tad less apples that called for. To round out the meal we fixed baked sweet potatoes with ginger and honey and fried okra (both also found on allrecipes.com). - 25 Dec 2001 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I tried this recipe for Christmas dinner. The duck came out beautiful. This was my first duck. I will use this recipe again. The stuffing was also ease to fix, & enjoyed by all. - 20 Jan 2001 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
