    Duck Club Sandwich

    Searing duck, baking bread, and whisking mayonnaise might seem like a lot of trouble just for a seemingly simple sandwick but once all of the elements come together, it all becomes worth it.

    Prep Time

        •    Yield: Serves 4



    Ingredients

        •    1 large egg
        •    2 cups raisins
        •    1/4 cup honey
        •    1 large egg yolk
        •    2 tsps kosher salt
        •    3/4 cup canola oil
        •    1/4 tsp kosher salt
        •    2 tsps Dijon mustard
        •    1 1/2 tsp dried thyme
        •    5 3/4 cups bread flour
        •    nonstick cooking spray
        •    4 (8-ounce) duck breasts
        •    1/3 cup granulated sugar
        •    1/2 cup chopped walnuts
        •    1/4 cup dark brown sugar
        •    1 1/2 tsp red wine vinegar
        •    3 large eggs, lightly beaten
        •    1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
        •    freshly ground black pepper
        •    1 1/2 tsps ground cinnamon
        •    2 small tomatoes, thinly sliced
        •    1 small red onion, thinly sliced
        •    1/4 cup plus 2 tbsps kosher salt
        •    2 cups shredded iceberg lettuce
        •    4 tbsps crumbled cooked bacon
        •    3 tbsps freshly ground black pepper
        •    kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
        •    1 1/8 tsps active dry yeast or 2 ounces fresh yeast
        •    1/2 cup olive oil mayonnaise or regular mayonnaise
        •    8 tbsps unsalted butter, cubed, at room temperature
        •    12 slices raisin walnut bread or other raisin bread toasted


    Method

    1. Preheat the oven to 400°F.

    2. Using a sharp knife, score the fat of the duck breasts, taking care not to cut through the meat. Season the duck generously. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat until very hot. Sear the duck breasts, skin side down, until the skin browns and the fat is rendered, about 8 minutes. Transfer the duck, skin side up to a rimmed baking sheet. Roast until a thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the duck registers 140°F (the duck will continue to cook as it cools), about 15 minutes. Remove from the oven. Once cool, slice very thin against the grain.

    3. To assemble the sandwich, spread 1 tablespoon mayonnaise on each of the 4 slices of toast and sprinkle with half of the bacon. Divide the lettuce evenly among the bread slices, and top each with half of the duck slices. Top with a second layer of toast. Spread the remaining mayonnaise over the slices. Sprinkle with the remaining bacon. Top with tomato slices, red onion, and the remaining duck. Cover the sandwiches with the remaining slices of toast, cut into quarters, and serve.


    Perfect roast seasoning:

    1. Makes about 2/3 cup

    2. Combine the salt, pepper, and thyme and store in a covered container.


    Olive oil mayonnaise:

    1. Makes 1 3/4 cups

    2. In a large bowl, whisk together the vinegar and salt until the salt dissolves. Whisk in the egg, egg yolk, and mustard until fully combined. Whisking constantly and vigorously, very slowly drizzle in the oils until the mixture is fully emulsified and thickened. Season with pepper to taste.


    Raisin walnut bread:

    1. Makes 1 (9 x 4 inch loaf)

    2. In the of an electric mixer with the hook attachment, combine the yeast with 1 1/2 cups lukewarm water. Let the mixture stand at room temperature until it starts to foam, about 10 minutes.

    3. Add the eggs, both sugars, and honey and mix for several seconds to combine. Add the flour gradually, mixing on medium speed until the dough starts to come together. Sprinkle in the salt and cinnamon and continue mixing.

    4. Add the butter, cube by cube, and continue mixing. Once it is fully incorporated, about 10 minutes, add the raisins and walnuts and mix until combined.

    5. Lightly grease a large bowl with nonstick cooking spray. Form the dough into a loose ball and place it in the bowl. Grease plastic wrap and cover the dough loosely. Allow the dough to rise until doubled in size, 1 1/2 to 2 hours.

    6. Preheat the oven to 375°F. Lightly grease a 9 x 4-inch loaf pan.

    7. Punch down the dough, form into a loaf, and place it in the prepared pan. Cover it loosely with plastic and let it rest until puffed up to the rim of the pan, about 30 minutes. Uncover and bake for 50 minutes to 1 hour, or until the top is dark golden brown and the loaf sounds hollow when tapped. Allow the bread to cool in the pan for 5 minutes before turning out onto a wire cooling rack.

              •    1 tbsp of olive oil

              •    240g of cooked chickpeas, peeled
        16. Preheat the oven to 190ºC/Gas mark 5 and scrape off the excess marinade from the lamb rumps.
        17. Heat the oil in an ovenproof frying pan and fry the lamb rump for 2-3 minutes on each side until the meat is evenly caramelized. Put into the oven and cook for 8-9 minutes (for medium rare), or until cooked to your liking, turning twice during cooking.

              •    75ml of oil
        18. Remove from the oven and rest on plates for 10 minutes. Slice thickly just before serving.
        19. Discard the excess oil and return the pan to the heat. Deglaze with white wine and cook over a high heat until the liquid has reduced to a sauce consistency.

              •    125ml of white wine
        20. To serve, pile the cous cous onto plates and arrange the lamb slices on top. Spoon the chickpea salsa and confit tomatoes around and drizzle with the white wine sauce.
