What to do with duck fat?

my friend gave me some duck fat that comes in a fancy package so I can make something for our next card game night. She says that a lot of restaurants fry french fries in such, also suggested making potato pancakes with it.

What else do you suggest that I make?

French fries aren't cooked in duck fat... Pomme Frites are

most anything you normally saute or pan fry in butter or oil could be transformed into your next favorite food once anointed with duck fat. roasted vegetables love to nestle in simmering juices where duck fat has been added. try frying some dark bread slices in rendered duck fat. or never mind the frying and spread the fat on a piece of sour dough or good rye bread. good stuff!

Make Sarladaise potatoes, thin round slices of potatoes sauted in rich duck fat with more than a hint of garlic and parsley.

Make duck confit, a traditional way of slow poaching duck legs in duck fat where the rich tender meat falls right off the bone.

Both are wonderful French dishes typically served together. Both are from the Perigord region in the southwest of France -- the area known for their ducks, foie gras, and truffles.

You can find many recipes for these online.

I have to say I especially like eggs fried in duck fat.

I was going to suggest that.....one of the few ways I truly love eggs. Then again, anything fried in duck fat is so much better. All these ideas are great.

A good appetizer is to take scallops, lightly salt and pepper them and sear gently in duck fat. Don't use too much fat, just enough to give them a nice sear on the ends. Oh, I want some right now!
