    I am looking for a sure thing recipe that is kid friendly and proven hit for a whole duck(frozen). This is a luxury item on our tight budget, so I don't want it to go to waste and need a tried and true recipe. Accommodations for 7-8 please. If you have a meal plan of other items that go great with your recipe, that would be fantastic as well. The meal is planned for 2-22-13.

    Thanks in advance

    A single duck is two or three servings at best. There isn't that much meat on them. I don't have kids so cannot swear that that this recipe would work, but I rather think it should = it's one we like very very much, Balsamic, Orange, Honey, Maple Syrup Glazed Duck

    February is Cherry Month. icon_smile.gif

    I can recommend Roast Long Island Duck With Cabernet-Cherry Sauce (link). Also, Jonge Eend - Duck a La Bigarde.

    They'd be nice served either with wild rice or Roasted Baby Red Potatoes, Green Beans with Cherry Tomatoes and a salad.

    Duonyte's right. You're going to need more duck to feed that many people. If your budget is really tight, I'd suggest roasting a whole chicken in addition to the duck and double whatever sauce you decide to use. That way, everybody will get a taste of the duck and still have enough meat to satisfy.

    I don't think this will serve 8 people, maybe 4 - Steamed Duck

    Look for a recipe with fruit in it. Oranges or cherries are pretty classic pairings for duck, and kids would like the sweetness. I agree, though, that duck just isn't going to stretch that far. If the kids realize it's a cute ducky like the ones that gobble stale bread in the park, they may not want any, but I'd cook up some chicken thighs to go with it.

    Ducks are small, and don't go very far. This recipe says 4 servings, but it is really only 2 servings since small ducklings are used. No reason why you couldn't use a larger 5 lb duck, but still only about 4-5 servings at most. icon_confused.gif

    Cantonese Duck - not an "authentic" Cantonese duck, but yummy just the same....I suppose you could cut back a bit on the mustard if your kids are young, my kids started eating this when they were about 8 or 9 (27 years ago).

    Thank you for the posts thus far. 4 of the 5 children are under 7 and are not big eaters. I am hoping to use other items as 'filler' , ie potatoes, rice, veggies etc. I usually cook meals with several items and everyone gets small portions of each. Thus I thought the 4 lb duck would be suffice. I will consider however a 'side' chicken just in case. Leftovers of chicken I can work with.

    Rice pilaf or something like it with vegetables may be good and the kids would like it.
