Roast Goose with Fruited Stuffing


Roast goose recipe is stuffed with a fruited bread stuffing with raisins and pecans and apples.

Cook Time: 4 hours

Total Time: 4 hours


  • 2 medium navel oranges
  • 4 cups bread cubes, toasted (about 6 slices bread)
  • 1 large apple, peeled, cored, and chopped, about 1 cup
  • 1/2 cup golden raisins
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 10 to 12 pound goose, not wild


Peel and section the oranges over a measuring cup; reserve 2 tablespoons of juice. Dice oranges. In a large mixing bowl, toss together bread cubes, diced oranges, chopped apple, raisins, pecans, reserved orange juice, salt, and nutmeg. Cover and let stand at room temperature for 60 minutes; toss again.

Stuff body cavity of goose. With a sharp fork, prick goose legs and wings all over so excess fat will be released while roasting. Do not put any additional fat on goose.

Place goose on a rack in a shallow roasting pan. Roast at 325° for 3 3/4 to 4 1/4 hours, spooning off excess fat from time to time.
Roast goose serves 4 to 6.
