It takes all of the right components to pull a good recipe off. Quality ingredients, a bit of knowledge about the preparation, patience and organization make up the rest of the formula.
This time of year I want to wow my guests at holiday events with something simple, yet full of flavor. Something that they will talk about on the way home and crave a week later.
One such dish is my bourbon glazed duck breasts sliders with cherries and goat cheese. I start with quality duck breasts from Maple Leaf Farms, a smooth single barrel bourbon from Four Roses, plump dried cherries from Michigan and a soft and tangy goat cheese from Capriole Farms. This combination just works. It is simple yet well balanced and made better when served on King’s Hawaiian® Dinner Rolls.
The subtle sweetness and soft texture of King’s Hawaiian® Dinner Rolls bring more to this recipe than your average soft roll or bun. This recipe can take center stage on your holiday buffet table and be will be a hit with adults and children. My test panel gave it 2 thumbs up!
