Christmas Day we made Alton Brown’s Mighty Duck, since duck is a tradition in our family. Truth be said, we’re not sure if Alton’s recipe counts as a roasted or steamed duck, but we’re calling it roasted for now. This resulted in a delicious box of leftovers, which of course is perfect for sandwiches. So yesterday we baked ciabatta breads to celebrate the Mighty Duck.
- 2 slices of ciabatta bread
- 1 tsp butter
- 3 slices of roasted duck
- 1/2 tsp chili sauce
- 4 black olives
- 2 tbs Pecorino Romano Cheese (or Parmesan can be substituted)
- 2 tsp mustard and basil sauce
Spread the butter on one slice of ciabatta, and lay the duck on top. Spread the chili sauce on top, and make sure to not use more than the 1/2 tsp as it will kill the taste of duck rather than enhance it. Grate the cheese and spread on top of the duck. Cut the olives in half, and lay them on top of the duck.
Place both ciabatta slices in a toaster oven, and heat until the bread starts turning golden brown and the cheese has started to melt.
Remove the bread, and spread the mustard sauce on the top piece of bread. Close the sandwich and enjoy.
