  • 1 (7- to 8-pound) whole dressed Canada goose, skin on (6 to 8 pounds)
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, divided
  • 1 medium yellow onion, quartered
  • 1 small red bell pepper, seeded and quartered
  • 2 (3-inch) fresh parsley sprigs
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped shallots
  • 1 (8-ounce) package sliced mixed wild mushrooms
  • 1/2 cup fat-free, less-sodium chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup port

  • 1 (12-ounce) can fat-free evaporated milk

Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 325°.
  2. Sprinkle cavity of goose with 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon black pepper. Stuff cavity loosely with onion, bell pepper, and parsley sprigs. Tie the legs together with string.

Discard skin, onion, bell pepper, and parsley sprigs. Reserve 1 tablespoon goose fat from roasting pan.
  3. Heat reserved goose fat in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add shallots and mushrooms; sauté 5 minutes. Add chicken broth and port; cook for 6 minutes or until the liquid almost evaporates.
  4. Combine the flour, milk, remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt, and remaining 1/4 teaspoon black pepper in a small bowl, stirring well with a whisk. Reduce heat to medium-low. Add milk mixture to pan; cook 2 minutes or until thick.
