Fingerling potatoes make the perfect side and require no additional preparation. Simply buy a pound or two of fingerling potatoes, chop them in half, and place them at the bottom of the baking dish. Season to your liking with salt and pepper and let them cook to a crispy perfection in the duck fat. While you're cutting, pre-heat the oven to 400 degrees F.

Next, you're going to want to prep those legs.

Wipe off any juice and pat dry with a paper towel. Once dry, season each side with salt and pepper. It's best to do this 3 or 4 times to ensure that each leg is appropriately seasoned.
