For best results cook in a fan oven. As appliances can vary, we recommend you check the running temperature of your oven with a oven thermometer before cooking your goose, as these cooking guidelines are based on a known oven temperature. Preheat oven: Remove all packaging. Place the goose in a large roasting tin and generously brush the breast and legs with melted butter or oil. Season the bird with salt and freshly ground black pepper, and cover loosely with foil. Place in the centre of a preheated oven, basting occasionally until golden brown. For the last 45 minutes of cooking time, remove the foil baste the bird and cover each breast with overlapping rashers of unsmoked bacon, if desired. Return to the oven until thoroughly cooked, there is no pink meat and juices run clear when the thickest part of the thigh is pierced with a skewer. If more cooking time is required, return to the oven and continue to test it every 15 minutes. Once cooked, remove it from the oven, cover loosely with foil and allow to stand for 15-30 minutes before carving. (Time 35 mins per kg Oven: 180°C, Fan: 170°C, Gas: Gas Mark gas 4)
