Duck or goose sausages

Duck is very versatile and is enjoyed for its rich, tender meat which is usually roasted or part roasted in the oven to help crisp up the skin. Why not give the following duck sausages recipe a try? Or alternatively, try with goose! Grouse is a rich and delicious meat, so it's no wonder grouse recipes are so varied in style and flavour. Duck or goose sausages recipe by Jon Wellington
