    JustJanS's Note:

    I just ordered my goose (a 14lb one) for Christmas, so I'm looking for a recipe now. I found this elsewhere, but it looks like "the one". Obvously, prep times are a guess.

      Although the stuffings only have 2oz of bread crumbs each (just seemed a little weird to me) they were AWESOME! Very tasty! This was my First Christmas Goose, but will NOT be my last! I am already getting hungry for next year!
