Ingredients

  • 2

    16 oz. Gnocchi

  • 3

    2 Tbsp. Butter

  • 4

    1 Shallot, Finely Diced

  • 5

    2 Cloves Garlic, Minced

  • 6

    2 Tbsp. Flour

  • 7

    ½ Cup Dry White Wine

  • 8

    1 Cup Heavy Cream

  • 9

    4 oz. Gorgonzola Cheese Crumbles

  • 10

    ½ Cup Grated Parmesan

  • 11

    1 tsp Truffle Oil or Truffle Seasoning

  • 12

    Parsley and Freshly Ground Pepper for Garnish

Directions

  • 1

    Score duck breast skin in 1/4" intervals, being careful not to cut into the meat. Rotate breast and score again, making a crisscross pattern. Season with salt & pepper.

  • 2

    Place duck skin side down in sauté pan, cover and cook for 10 minutes on medium low heat to render fat.

  • 3

    Flip duck breast over and cook in the pan on medium heat for 7-10 minutes. Or you can cook in the oven at 400 degrees for 10 minutes instead of the pan for a more even cook. Cook until the internal temperature reaches 165 degrees F. Set aside and cover with foil to rest.

  • 4

    While the duck breast cooks, boil gnocchi until al dente according to packaging directions (usually about 3-5 minutes).

  • 5

    In the same pan the duck was cooked in, add butter, shallot and garlic on medium heat. Cook until tender about 1-2 minutes.

  • 6

    Add flour and whisk constantly to form a roux. Continue to whisk once solid and slowly add in wine and heavy cream. Bring to a boil.

  • 7

    Add in gorgonzola and truffle seasoning/oil and simmer on low for 7 minutes. Add in gnocchi and cook for 2 more minutes.

  • 8

    Remove from heat. Add in parmesan and top with duck cut into thin slices pieces. Garnish with parsley and fresh ground pepper for serving.
