Can I stuff my goose?
Last Updated: 07/26/2012
Absolutely, as long as you adhere to strict safety instructions.

  • Clean the bird thoroughly inside and out with water, then pat dry with a paper towel before inserting the stuffing.
  • Cook raw stuffing ingredients before mixing them with the dry ingredients and inserting them in the goose.
  • Loosely fill the neck and body cavities, by spooning the stuffing mixture into these areas. It is crucial that the body cavity is not packed tightly because it will expand as moisture is absorbed. Too much stuffing could prevent the poultry meat from being properly and thoroughly cooked.
  •  Use a meat thermometer. Cook until stuffing reaches a temperature of 165°F and goose reaches a temperature of at least 185°F deep in thigh meat.
