    JustJanS's Note:

    I just ordered a goose for Christmas. This is one of the recipes I'm considering making. I got this off another site, and altered it very slightly. I haven't made it so prep times, which include resting the goose, are just a guess!

      Roast the goose for 30 minutes, the remove excess fat, turn the goose to breast-side down; remove fat, but do not turn the bird.

      Remove the goose, tent loosely with foil, and allow to rest 20-30 minutes while you make the gravy.

      Add the broth, and reduce to a thinish gravy consistency.
