1. Duck Burger: Remove meat from duck leg bones. Finely chop or grind meat. (Freeze bones to make duck stock later.) Combine burger ingredients. Divide into 6 portions; shape into patties. Refrigerate covered for a minimum of 1 hour.


2. Rosemary Sour Cream Butter: Place all butter ingredients except parsley into food processor. Blend until smooth. Remove from processor; blend in parsley. Reserve one-half of butter mixture for brushing burgers and the other half for buttering foccacia.


3. Red Cider Slaw: Combine first six Red Cider Slaw ingredients. Before serving, blend in remaining ingredients.


4. Preheat grill. Place patties on hot grill. Turn when bottom side is marked; brush with butter mixture. Continue to turn and brush with butter mixture about 5-7 minutes or until burger reaches 155 degrees F as measured by a meat thermometer.


5. Cut focaccia buns in half; toast. Brush top and inside with butter mixture. Place duck burger on bottom half of bread; top with Red Cider Slaw or serve slaw on the side. Add top half of bread.


*Note: Maple Leaf Farms Ground Duck Meat (2 lb 4 oz) may also be used.
