Roast Goose with Apple-Raisin Stuffing Recipe
A tempting Thanksgiving goose is a family tradition I've kept up. Paired with moist, lightly sweet apple-raisin stuffing, it's a special main dish that makes us count our blessings.
-Denise Goedeken, Platte Center, Nebraska
1 domestic goose (10 to 12 pounds)
1-1/4 teaspoons salt, divided
1 cup chopped celery
1 cup chopped onion
2 tablespoons butter
3 cups chopped peeled apples
2 cups raisins
8 cups cubed day-old white bread
2 to 3 tablespoons sugar
1/2 cup apple cider
1/2 cup water
Sprinkle the inside of the goose with 1/4 teaspoon salt. Prick skin well. In a skillet, saute celery and onion in butter; transfer to a bowl. Add the apples, raisins, bread, sugar and remaining salt.
In a small bowl, beat eggs, cider and water. Pour over bread mixture and toss lightly. Stuff into the goose. Place with breast side up on a rack in a large shallow roasting pan.
Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 3 to 3-1/2 hours or until a thermometer reads 180°. Drain fat from pan as it accumulates. Remove stuffing before carving goose.
Yield: 10 servings.
