Pot Roasted Duck Gueydan


  • 2 ducks, cleaned
  • 1 medium onion, halved
  • 1 small bell pepper, sliced
  • 2 slices bacon
  • 2 small red potato, quartered
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 3/4 cup oil
  • 2 cups water


Prepare ducks. Season with salt and pepper. In cavity, stuff half of onion, half of bell pepper and half of potato in each duck. Sew cavity closed with a large sewing needle and sewing thread. Add to hot oil in deep heavy pot. Brown well on all sides over a medium heat. As you brown, you may need to add dabs of water. Cover after each browning, continue to turn over and over and add water until ducks are tender. This usually takes about 2 1/2 hours, depending on how tough the ducks are. Carve ducks on platter. Then add a small amount of water to the bottom of the pot to form a gravy. Serve over rice. Serves 4.
