Here's some favorite goose recipes of ours.

Goose Recipe Ingredients:
  • 4 large goose breasts
  • 6 tablespoons of salt
  • 3 containers of BBQ sauce (kraft works fine, and it's cheap)
  • 1 container of favorite BBQ sauce (I like Famous Dave's "Rich and Sassy")
  • Mustard
  • Hamburger Buns
I like to prepare it the night before the hunt, than it's ready for after the morning hunt.

Make sure you get all blood clots out, and rinse thoroughly. Cut goose into 1/4" strips across the grain. Take the goose strips and let them soak overnight with the 6 tablespoons of salt. After letting it soak, pour out all the water. Continue to add water and keep rinsing the stips. The more blood you get out, the less game taste will remain.
Add the strips to a crock pot, and cover with the 3 containers of BBQ sauce. Turn the crock pot to low. Give it 4-6 hours at low heat to cook through.
That's about it! Just throw the strips on a hamburger bun, cover with bbq sauce and a little mustard.
Baked Goose Recipe Ingredients

1 Goose 6 - 8 lbs.
1 quart Buttermilk
8 oz Prunes, dried
2 Apples - sliced
5 slices Bacon
Butter - as needed

Soak goose in buttermilk for 4-8 hours in refrigerator. Wash bird and drain. Stuff with prunes and apples. Truss and wrap in bacon. Cover tightly with heavy duty aluminum foil. Bake until tender at roughly 325 degrees F. for about 3 hours or so. Baste with butter to help it brown.


1/2 cup Butter
1/4 cup Flour
3/4 cup Beef or chicken broth
Salt - to taste
1 cup Sour cream
4 tb Currant jelly

Melt butter in sauce pan. Use whisk to stir in flour. Add broth and heat stirring constantly. Just before serving add sour cream and jelly. Heat and serve.


I suggest removing fruit before serving and arranging it around the bird.
