A question about a recipe: Duck Meatballs à L’Orange

1a9130cf 1f33 4a21 acd0 e218da5b94b7  unspecified 5

I have a question about the recipe "Duck Meatballs à L’Orange " from QueenSashy. Is there any other meat I can sub for the duck? I can't get readily get that here. This recipe sounds so good I am hoping I can re-re imagine it! Lamb?

That recipe does sound delicious. I would go with another poultry, especially ground chicken for example. Chicken with orange sauce is delicious too.

Agree with Lisanne about recommending a poultry substitute for duck in that meatball recipe.
But/and. There are many lamb-orange recipes already made and evaluated by other cooks...maybe try one of them if you like that flavor combination

Nancy, you can use chicken (dark meat) and turkey too. If you are using turkey, I suggest subbing about third of the meat with finely chopped bacon to make it more moist. I do it all the time and they are wonderful.

I'd also use ground turkey, with part ground pork mixed in (maybe 1/3 or so,) since duck is fattier and has a richer flavor than turkey.
