  • 1 goose


Roast the bird in the oven as you would any other large fowl, but prick its skin occasionally to let out excess grease. A 9-pound bird (which feeds 6 to 8 people), put into the oven unstuffed and at room temperature, will take about 2 hours to cook at 325 degrees F. A 12-1/2 pound goose (which feeds 12-14 people) takes 2 hours and 30 to 40 minutes. Add 20 to 40 minutes if the bird is stuffed. Your goose is cooked when its juices run pale yellow; the breast meat will dry out of the goose is cooked too long.
