duck or pork scratchings

Maison Gast : graton lyonnais et friton de canard.

Fritons are similar to grattons, but in the southwest they usually refer to duck rather than pork scratchings.

friton de canard

Friton (singular) is a rich pork or duck pâté; the duck version usually includes foie gras and crispy scratchings.
