SEATTLE — If you love the taste of duck but would never try making it at home, chef Tom Douglas says wait! He found something that makes the job super easy. He joined us from the Hot Stove Society kitchen.

Duck Leg Confit with Yukon Gold Potatoes and Roasted Savoy Cabbage 

Serves 2


  • Maple Leaf Farms Duck Leg Confit (2 pack), you will find this in the freezer aisle
  • Savoy cabbage, cut into wedges
  • 2 Yukon Gold potatoes, cut into wedges
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil

  5. While the potatoes and cabbage are cooking, heat a large oven-proof skillet on medium-high.
  6. Place the duck leg skin side down.
