Having the holiday celebration at your house this year? Here's the perfect recipe to share with your friends and family. Serve with an abundance of wine (or non-alcoholic sparkling apple cider), good cheer and great conversation.
1 whole goose (8 to 10 pounds)
1 pound organic yellow or red onions, unpeeled
2 tablespoons minced garlic
Wild Oats Extra Virgin Organic Olive Oil for sautéing (optional)
4 cups dry breadcrumbs
3/4 cup Wild Oats Organic Milk, heated to lukewarm
4 cups mixed dried fruits such as apples, pears, figs, apricots or cherries
2 tablespoons minced fresh sage, or 1 tablespoon dried sage
1/4 cup minced fresh parsley
3/4 cup chopped Wild Oats Organic Walnuts or Hazelnuts (optional)
1/2 cup diced celery (optional)
1 pound sweet Italian sausage, diced, sautéed, and drained (optional)
1/4 cup Calvados dry apple brandy (optional)
Salt and fresh ground pepper, to taste
Freshly grated nutmeg, to taste
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

Place unpeeled onions in a shallow pan and roast until tender, about 30 minutes. Cool, peel, and chop, then set aside. Lower oven temperature to 350 degrees F.

In a small skillet, sauté garlic in a small amount of the olive oil until soft but not browned and set aside. Soak breadcrumbs in milk until soft, and then squeeze dry and set aside.

In a large mixing bowl, combine bread, onions, reserved garlic, dried fruits, sage and parsley. If desired, add nuts, celery, and/or sausage. Season with salt, pepper and nutmeg. Stuff the goose with the mixture, and tie the cavity closed with butcher’s twine. Place on a rack in a roasting pan.

Roast goose in preheated oven until juices run clear when thigh is pricked with a fork, about 3 hours or until a thermometer reaches 165 degrees F to 175 degrees F. Remove goose from the pan and skim off fat from pan juices. Deglaze pan with a little Calvados, if desired, and pour over the goose.
