Roast Goose Breasts Recipe

Roast goose breasts are a delicious and indulgent dish that has a rich history in many culinary traditions. This recipe combines the succulent meat of goose breasts with flavorful ingredients like garlic, ginger, and salt to create a mouthwatering main course. Fun fact: Goose was a popular dish during the medieval period and was often associated with festive occasions. It was considered a delicacy reserved for the nobility due to the high cost and availability.

- 2 goose breasts
- Skin from the goose neck
- Garlic cloves or onions
- Salt
- Ginger


1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) and prepare a roasting pan.

2. Start by removing the skin from the neck of the goose. Carefully detach it from the meat, being cautious not to tear it.

3. Lay the goose breasts on a clean surface and make a small incision with a pointed knife in the breast and joints of each breast. This will create pockets for the garlic or onions to be inserted into.

4. Peel and thinly slice the garlic cloves or onions. Insert a little garlic (or onion) into each incision, distributing it evenly across the breasts.

5. Sprinkle a generous amount of salt and ginger over both sides of the goose breasts, ensuring they are well seasoned.

6. Place the skin from the goose neck over the breasts, covering them entirely. Sew the skin onto the breasts using kitchen twine or secure it with a few stitches under the breasts. This will help keep the breasts moist during the roasting process.

7. Place the goose breasts in the roasting pan and cover it tightly with aluminum foil. This will prevent the breasts from browning too quickly.

8. Roast the goose breasts in the preheated oven for approximately 1 hour or until the internal temperature reaches 165°F (74°C). The foil should remain on the pan during this cooking process.

9. After 1 hour, remove the foil and continue roasting for an additional 15 minutes. This will allow the skin to crisp up and turn a golden brown color.

10. Once cooked, remove the goose breasts from the oven and let them rest for a few minutes before carving.

11. To serve, carve the breast into thin slices, creating an elegant presentation. The roast goose breasts can be enjoyed on their own or paired with your favorite side dishes.

Fun fact: In some cultures, roast goose is traditionally served during Christmas time as an alternative to turkey. The rich and flavorful meat makes it a favorite during festive occasions.
