Catholic Recipe: Roast Goose IV (with Fruit Stuffing)
Fresh fruit and walnuts in this bread stuffing gives a sweet taste to the Thanksgiving goose. Apple stuffing is another popular alternative, which is provided here.
Prepare bread stuffing as directed on package. Blend in bananas. Add remaining ingredients; mix well. Makes enough for 10- to 12-pound bird.
Apple Stuffing: Replace bananas, grapes, and oranges with 1 cup each minced onion and celery, and increase apples to measure 4 to 5 cups. Omit walnut meats if preferred. Mix vegetables and fruit with bread stuffing prepared according to package directions.
Roast goose: Stuff, close cavity, and skewer. Roast uncovered at 325° at rate of 25 minutes per pound. Pour off fat as it accumulates.Recipe Source: Cook's Blessings, The by Demetria Taylor, Random House, New York, 1965
