Christmas Dinner Goose

Originally uploaded by AndyRob

The Christmas Dinner Goose had to be cooked on a barbecue outdoors for reasons I won;t go into here. Anyway, one breast and two legs were butchered out from the main carcass and chargrilled. The breast puffed up like a nice filet steak and was left to rest then carved into pink slices. The legs hissed and spat then cooked through, with slightly blackened skin. All served with lovely organic brussels sprouts and carrots, spicy cider gravy,and sauted parsnips and potatoes in goose fat.

Marry Christmas!
