Is duck the “new” thing?

Duck and duck fat seem to be the new “hot” thing right now. And when I say hot I mean literally hot, remember this post when I burned myself with scorching hot duck fat?!  I wanted to make more use of the duck fat I have so I decided cook potatoes in duck fat.

All in all it was pretty easy to do. I took sliced potatoes and mixed them with melted duck fat, salt and pepper.

Then I placed them on a baking sheet and placed them in the oven, preheated at 450 F, for 30 minutes.

I flipped them once while they cooked.  Then I removed them from the oven and tossed them with lemon juice and zest and parsley.IMG_2500

The Verdict: Pretty tasty!  And these potatoes make a super easy side dish.  The lemon adds another layer to the flavor which really elevates the dish on a whole.  These will definitely go into the rotation!
