Got Duck Sauce?

I was reading one of my many foodie magazines {Every Day with Rachael Ray} and thought this little snippet about using those little packets of duck sauce was worth sharing. Many of us order Chinese takeout and end up with a secret stash of assorted sauce packets. What in the world do you do with them when your dish has been eaten? Well, here are three really great ideas to incorporate these sweet little packets.

Cream Cheese:

Toss dried cranberries, golden raisins and finely chopped red onion with duck sauce. Season with salt and pepper and spoon over a block of cream cheese. Serve with crackers, pita chips, etc.


For a sweet-and-sour addition, dress up your favorite slaw recipe or shred broccoli stalks and red cabbage and add duck sauce, rice vinegar, sesame oil and top with toasted sesame seeds.

Grilled Cheese:

Add a new spin to a basic grilled cheese sandwich, by spreading duck sauce on the bread. Try adding muenster, avocado and turkey or whatever you enjoy. For inspiration, click here for more grilled cheese idea.

Do you have other quick tips for using duck sauce or any other sauce packets we seem to accumulate?
