    My buddy gave me the breast meat from all 15 ducks we shot today. Tomorrow I'm going to do a bit of a feed for my friends in the dorm.

    How should I do them and for how long? Something simple would be preferable.

    Thanks guys.

    You didn't say what kind of Ducks. IMO the best I like are Mallards and Woodies.
    This is a great and EASY recipie
    Heat some Canola oil is a skillet.Low to Medium Heat. Place breasts Inside down(The side closest to the rib cage) Sear over low to low Medium . Low and slow. DO NOT OVER COOK. Do NOT turn over. You want pink. Only salt and pepper. In the end deglaze pan with a red wine. Marinate the breast with the hot wine Remove breasts let sit 1 min. Slice thin on the bias(Angle) Against the grain. Spoon a little of the red wine on them. Enjoy. This is how a chef taught me cook them. IN THE BLIND. We have the ultimate blind! And believe me YUMMMMM. Makes me tingle guys are busten ducks this year already. Have fun and keep us posted. Whats the population looking there this year?

    That does sound like a tasty recipe, but unfortunatly I'm still in the dorms of a dry campus, so the red wine would be a big no-no.

    I'm thinking a couple cans of cream of mushroom soup, some onion, salt and pepper, and chunked up duck breast.

    the breast are anywhere from teal sized to hen mallard.

    What you have in mind sounds pretty good with the cream soup. Substitute a can of cream of celery for one of cream of mushroom though and serve it with rice and a veggie.

    So here is what I did for my duck.

    A bunch of the duck breasts (I didn't count how many)
    1 big can of cream of chicken soup
    1 regular can of cream of chicken soup
    1/2 of the big can of water
    3/4 of a big onion. Cut up into big chunks
    2 cloves of garlic minced
    Salt and pepper to taste.

    I put it in the crockpot and kept it on low for 4 hours.

    Turned out AMAZING. I just stuffed myself full

    AAHHHHHHH a ruination of good duck breast meat. Freeze it and wait till you can properly cook it. By pan searing it till Rare or Medium Rare and making a sauce from some fruit like Raspberries...

    Don't worry, I still have a few breasts frozen. I just dont trust the stove in the dorm kitchen, it has a mind of its own sometimes.
