The Final Touchdown...#10DaysofTailgate....Ducky Joes

It is with a sad heart that I say goodbye to this Tailgate Event.  It has been so much fun creating dishes with all of the wonderful products our sponsors provided.  I kind of felt like I was participating in a Chopped Challenge with a tailgate theme. I am so very grateful to Camilla of Culinary Adventures with Camilla for hosting this event.

On this last day I am going to highlight the 4 of our generous sponsors whose products I received.  I conceived of this recipe way back in the beginning of September when the packages first started arriving and I saved it until the end so I could "Save the Best until Last".  I hope you enjoy it and I hope you had as much fun at this event as we did.  I am keeping my fingers crossed that one of my readers wins a prize package.  You can learn all about all of our sponsors and enter to win some great prize packages here.  Make sure you check your email!!

Our generous sponsors sent us tons of products to try during this event.  I have been having so much fun with them all and I can honestly say that I have been so pleased with all the products that I received that I will continue to use them now that this event is completed.  I recommend these product for all my friends, family and dear readers.  I am thinking that many of them would make great gifts for those that love cooking as much as I do.

For today's recipe I am using ground duck from Maple Leaf Farms.
Mango Mustard from El Diablo.
Cherry Chipotle Sauce from Not Ketchup.
And Chunky Garlic and Chili Pepper from Gourmet Garden.

I browned the duck with the onions, garlic and salt and pepper.
Drained it and put it in my crockpot.
Added the rest of the ingredients and set it to cook for 4 hours.

  1. Duck and Chicken Gumbo Soup were surprising ingredients - this is no ordinary Sloppy Joe! Now I'm intrigued.

    1. Chicken Gumbo soup is always the surprise ingredient in my Sloppy Joes. I have tried making it without and it is just not the same.

  2. Mmmm.... that sounds like a WONDERFUL recipe!! I can practically smell it through my screen. :)

    1. Thanks Rebekah. Our sponsors made it easy to make great food.

  3. Great idea to make sloppy joes in the slow cooker! These sound spicy!
