    Usually I serve sauté potatoes and garlic butter green beans with this dish, and looking for something different for sides. What is your favourite accompaniment ? Thyme is the herb I use for the duck.

    Man, there is plenty possibilities...I would say one example - lemony sweet potato puree, honey glazed parsnips and vanilla jus..this would be tasty as hell :)

    Nothing beats potatoes roasted in duck fat IMHO, but it looks as though you are looking for a little variety.

    Ive been going off the beaten path a little when @ home and have been making pasta dough with duck eggs, then using it to make ravioli of duck confit and porcinis.  Then I add a duck egg yolk to the center of the ravioli before sealing it up.     Make a port reduction to drizzle beneath the ravioli, and you are in for a good time!
