    Ingredients


    2 duck breasts, skin removed and minced coarsely
    1 tbsp dried breadcrumbs (I used packet Panko)
    1/2 tsp salt (smoked, if you have it)
    1/2 tsp Chinese five spice
    1/2 tsp coarsely ground black pepper.
    50g blue cheese (I used Stilton)

    Method

    Combine all of the ingredients apart from the cheese. Divide into two, and roll into balls. Create a depression in which to stuff the cheese, and mould the patty mix around it. Press each down to form burger shapes then chill for at least two hours. To cook, lightly oil a non-stick frying pan, and fry the burgers over a moderate heat for 5 mins on each side to brown, then transfer to an oven, pre-heated to 160 deg C for a further 10 minutes.

    Excellent. Very inventive - duck burgers hadn't even crossed my mind. What is the sauce?

    Plum and cardamom. Plums cooked down in chicken stock with crushed cardamom pods. Sieved, and a little butter added.

    The duck burger recipe is adapted from a Michel Roux Jr. one I first tried a couple of years ago. His used Vacherin, not blue cheese, and the burgers were a bit sloppy, hence the addition of breadcrumbs.

    That sounds delicious and perfect with duck.
