1 lb duck or goose breast meat (boneless and skinless)
1/2 cup of Italian dressing or favorite marinade

3-4 slices of bacon


1.  If using frozen meat, defrost duck or goose breast in the refrigerator overnight.

2.  Cut meat into bite-sized chunks.

3.  Place meat in a non-reactive bowl and pour the dressing/marinade over the meat.  Stir to evenly coat the meat.  Let marinate in the refrigerator for a few hours or even a few days.

4.  Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

5. Cut bacon into 1 to 1.5 inch pieces.  Remove duck from the marinade and place a piece of bacon on top, securing it with a wooden toothpick.  Place it on a cookie sheet and repeat with remaining duck and bacon.

6.  Bake for about 10 minutes until the bacon is crisp and the duck is cooked through.
