Roast Duck Leg With Red Wine and Rosemary Sauce

Roast Duck Leg With Red Wine and Rosemary Sauce

Another easy but impressive dish which is delicious served with fluffy mash and some greens. We had this for Sunday dinner last night without all of the work that goes with a traditional Sunday roast.  It is worth buying Gressingham duck legs as they are very meaty.
