For a real Christmas centerpiece, try a goose! If you need any help with the trussing, watch this recipe being made in the Allrecipes Roast Goose Video.
I made this goose for Christmas dinner (plus a duck) to serve 6 adults. While the goose turned out tasty and terrific, the stuffing was a bit greasy. However, I had extra stuffing that I could not fit into the cavity and I had put this into a casserole dish and heated it prior to dinner. This is a better option as it is not so greasy and you can still present it with the meal. Simple recipe but tasty! - 15 Jan 2005 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
My husband made this for Thanksgiving and it turned out great. The goose was very moist. - 17 Dec 2002 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
I usually make "dressing" instead of "stuffing. I goose just renders too much fat. I roast the bird on a rack and stuff it with a couple of quartered apples. I discard the apples but they soak up a lot of goose grease. Turkey comes with my grandmother's cornbread/sage dressing. I do a wild rice dressing, in another dish, to go with goose. - 18 Dec 2009 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
