Maple Leaf Farms, Leesburg, Ind., introduced All Natural Duck Meatballs for foodservice professionals. This fresh take on an old favorite features rich duck breast meat, cheddar cheese and chili pepper spices.

Oven roasted for convenience, the Duck Meatballs are an easy heat-and-serve option for chefs and caterers as an appetizer or as an addition to soups, sandwiches and pasta. The pre-portioned size allows for consistent servings. And, they contain 45% less fat and 30% fewer calories than traditional beef or pork meatballs.

“With their versatility, the duck meatballs are a perfect way for chefs to focus on creativity, while offering a healthier option,” says Cindy Turk, marketing director. “The meatballs bring a unique flavor profile to menus with endless possibilities.”

The All Natural Duck Meatballs average .57 ounces and are individually-quick frozen in packages of about 70 meatballs – four packages per 10-pound case.
