What are your favorite ways to use duck confit? I made the Melissa Clark Genius recipe this morning, and am thrilled with the results. ;o)

I need some ideas now for how to use the four legs (not the fat or the skin). Thanks so much, everyone. ;o)

I like to shred, add some fine chopped onion, seasoning, a splash of cognac - call it a rillette and serve as either a terrine or with toast points. You can put it in a blender to make a piping paste also.

Let me just say this right now, GRILLED CHEESE. Artisan Bread, Shredded Gruyere Cheese, Shredded Meat from the Duck Confit, More Gruyere Cheese, Artisan Bread. Instead of Butter or Mayonnaise, use some of the Excess Duck Fat on the outside of the bread to make it extra Ducky. Optional, Homemade Sauerkraut after the Duck Meat, to add a bit of sour twang to the mix. This is extravagant. This is ridiculous. This is delicious.

Make a simple salad of shredded duck confit, arugula, fresh figs (or dried ones poached in port) and toss with a balsamic vinaigrette. I served this on Christmas Eve next to a roast goose, and have been craving it ever since.

I don't have a favorite way, since I've never made it, but I just stumbled across these barbeque lentils to serve with duck confit on page 119, last recipe listed in this Magnolia Grille cookbook link (given for the red pepper jelly question):
