The holiday party season is here and lots of folks are looking for party food bite ideas that are a little out of the norm. If that is you, I have a few ideas for you and they all involve something you don’t normally see on the party app scene: duck.Even if you have never cooked duck before and are a little intimidated to give it a try. Let me assure you that there is only two ways to cook it. 1). Hard and fast, cooked up med-rare or 2). Soft and slow, until fall of the bone tender.This blackened duck alfredo gnocchi recipe uses the soft and slow method and is the perfect compliment to potato gnocchi. Served on party app spoons this will wow every guest at any party all season long.For more duck recipes like Chef Troy’s duck sausage/roasted cauliflower flat bread and braised duck quesadillas visit www.cheftroy.net.
