Duck Bacon Guacamole recipe was prepared on WTHR and IndyStyle.
Duck bacon? In guacamole?
ABSOLUTELY! It’s pretty amazing, if I do say so myself. In my opinion, the addition of bacon to this popular condiment/dip makes it a complete meal. I mean, it is made of avocados (healthy), tomatoes (healthy), onions (healthy), cilantro (love it), garlic (good for you too), lime juice (I have nothing) and- DUCK BACON! That’s all you need, right?
And because I am such a giver, I actually found a way to lighten this dip recipe up.
Bacon in small doses is not the worst thing you can eat. Heck- eat everything that tastes good in small doses. But I kicked it up a notch by using DUCK bacon from Maple Leaf Farms! Maple Leaf Farms (henceforth known as MLF) is not only in Indiana, but they are also the largest producer of duck in the Midwest. In the United States. In NORTH AMERICA!! How fantastic is that? Do you remember when I toured there last year and enrolled (and graduated thank you very much) from Duck University? What? It’s a real thing! I have the certificate to prove it:
AND- I took the class with THE Sara Moulton! So there.
Anyhow- back to the duck. If you have been following me for a while then you know I am a MLF fan. A big fan. not only because this is an Indiana Grown food that employs hundreds and is raised on Indiana farms- but also because it is a healthy protein I can feed my family. Yes- it IS possible to make duck on a weeknight.
I made a recipe for Seared Duck Breasts with Orange Bourbon Molasses Sauce and it was on the table in under 30 minutes.
Don’t believe me- just watch!
I was lucky enough to share about Maple Leaf Farms recently at the Indianapolis Home show and through the promotion of the home show I was invited to share a few recipes on WTHR (Channel 13 for you locals) and IndyStyle (my monthly gig) on WISH. Want to watch?
Now on to the duck bacon guacamole!
Have you ever thought about making bacon guacamole? I think it would make a GREAT game day food!
