Maple Leaf Farms, Leesburg, Ind., added Duck Bacon to its retail product selections.
Cured and naturally Applewood smoked, this duck bacon cooks in minutes in a skillet or convection oven. Made exclusively with boneless breast meat, the thick-sliced duck bacon is said to have 57% less fat than traditional pork bacon.
“Unlike some other poultry bacons, our duck bacon doesn’t compromise on taste or texture,” says Cindy Turk, duck marketing manager. “It’s packed with flavor and has a great bite that’s perfect for eggs, sandwiches, salads and even brittle.”
They are sold fresh in 12-ounce vacuum packages with six packages to a case for retail stores.
