Goose AND Turkey?

Lemonii | | Dec 5, 2007 11:54 AM

My husband wants goose for Christmas. His parents do not, they want turkey. I love the idea of having some of the goose fat. I wonder if I can get a small goose, cook it before the Turkey and then use the meat for something…. I’ve never cooked a goose… What about this, cook the goose, retain the fat and smother some on the Turkey. Since geese don’t have much meat on them anyways, and I’m getting a small one, what can I do with the goose meat? Flavor the gravy? Put it in the dressing?
