Recipe Tips and Substitutions
Set the duck breast out about 30 minutes before slicing to make slicing easier.
If the duck breast has a thick layer of fat, trim it off and store it for later use.
When making the chaffles, be sure to use only ¼ cup of egg mixture. If you use more than that, the chaffle mixture will run out of the waffle maker and make a huge mess.
Swap out the onion and garlic powder for cinnamon (½ teaspoon) and nutmeg (¼ teaspoon).
If duck appetizers aren't your thing, swap out the duck for thinly sliced pieces of steak, chicken, or pork loin.
