Goose with Cornbread Stuffing
I've been making this special entree ever since my husband and I were first married many years ago. The dressing pairs well with the moist meat. —Patsy Faye Steenbock, Riverton, Wyoming
Total TimePrep: 45 min. Bake: 3-1/2 hours
- 1 package (8-1/2 ounces) cornbread/muffin mix
- 1 domestic goose (10 to 12 pounds)
- 1-2/3 cups chopped onions
- 2 cups sliced fresh mushrooms
- 2 cups sliced celery
- 6 tablespoons butter
- 1-1/2 cups grated peeled apples

- 3 medium carrots, cut into chunks
- 1 medium onion, cut into 6 wedges

- 1/2 cup white wine or additional chicken broth
- Prepare cornbread according to package directions; cool on a wire rack. Rub inside of goose cavity with salt. Prick skin well; set aside. Cut cornbread into cubes; place on a baking sheet. Bake at 350° for 15-20 minutes or until lightly browned. Place in a large bowl.
- In a skillet, saute chopped onions, mushrooms and celery in butter; add to cornbread cubes. Gently stir in apples, pecans, shredded carrots, parsley, herbs and pepper. Add broth; toss gently. Stuff the goose body and neck cavities; truss opening.
- Place carrot chunks, onion wedges and garlic in a shallow roasting pan. Place goose breast side up over vegetables. Pour wine or additional broth over goose.
- Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 3-1/2 to 4 hours or until a thermometer reads 180° (cover with foil during the last hour to prevent over browning). Cover and let stand for 10-15 minutes before carving.
