Emeril's Kicked Up Ballpark Sandwich

  • Yield: 6 servings


  • 6 cups shredded duck confit
  • 1 1/2 cups mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup minced red onions
  • Salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 12 slices Caramelized Onion Focaccia
  • 12 slices fresh tomato, about 1/4-inch thick
  • 1 pound fresh Mozzarella cheese, cut into 12 slices
  • 2 pounds sweet potatoes, peeled and thinly sliced


  • Preheat the fryer.
  • In a mixing bowl, combine the confit, 1 cup of the mayonnaise and red onions. Mix well. If the salad is to dry, add more mayonnaise. Season with salt and pepper. Spread 1 cup of the salad over evenly over 6 slices of the bread. Season both sides of the tomatoes with salt and pepper. Lay 2 slices each of the tomato and cheese over the duck salad. Place the remaining slices of bread over the cheese. Press each sandwich together. Fry the potatoes, in batches, until golden brown, about 4 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove and drain on paper towels. Season with salt. Slice each sandwich in half diagonally and serve with the Sweet Potato Chips.
