Stuffed, tunnel-boned duck splitting open
This weekend, I stuffed and cooked a tunnel-boned duck. However, it split open along the middle of the breast, where the duck's breast-bone would have been. I think I might have over-stuffed the duck, but I'm also thinking that tying a few strings across the duck's chest might have prevented this from happening. Would there be a best way to tie strings around a duck for this purpose? Do you have any other suggestions on how to prevent a stuffed, tunnel-boned duck from splitting open, down the middle like this, in the future? Thanks!
