What is so fantastic about this dish is that you don’t really need any specialised equipment. Just a knife and chopping board! If you want to cut the tortillas I would recommend using round cookies cutters.

Storing leftover goose

The easiest way to store cooked goose is to allow it cool after being cooked first. Putting hot meat straight into the fridge can cause the fridge temperature to rise and make the fridge work harder to cooler it again. It can also cause bacteria to spread.

Once the goose is cooked slice it up and put it into an air tight container or on a plate wrapped with film or aluminium foil. The goose will last in the fridge for a few days. I would recommend eating it within 3 days. Storing leftover goose is easy and storing it in the fridge to eat later helps reduce food waste.

Substitutions and variations

The easiest way you can substitute and make variations for this leftover goose wrap recipe is change the meat.

  • You can replace the leftover goose for leftover turkey, chicken, pork or even turn it vegan by using leftover vegetables.
  • Salad options can change depending on what you have in the fridge.
  • Red onion is a really nice addition to give a sharp and tangy bite.
  • Adding hot sauce to add some spice to the wraps. I love adding sriracha to my wraps.
  • Add leftover Brussels Sprouts – this is a weird one but can work!
  • If you don’t eat bread you can swap out the tortilla for lettuce wraps instead.

FAQS

How long does cooked goose last in the fridge?

Cookes goose lasts up to 3 days in the fridge. Make sure it is stored in an air tight container or is wrapped up.

If you want it to last longer I would recommend putting it into the freezer and defrosting it when ready.

It is great in sandwiches and is also in this recipe for leftover goose wraps.

Goose meat is an excellent source of iron which our bodies need. In fact it is better for iron than beef, pork or chicken.

Cooked goose freezes really well. You only need to package it up and put it in the freezer. I would recommend to keep it in for a maximum of 6 months.

If the goose is in a sauce put the goose and sauce into a ait tight container and freeze.

Either way you freeze it, make sure the goose is completely defrosted before reheating or eating.

    This is a great idea and other meats could be subbed since I don’t have goose around often!

      Neither do we but at Christmas, it is our treat. Turkey also works really really well with it.

    This is making me want to cook a goose! Something I’ve always wanted to do for the holidays but I think I’ll give it a shot with duck first as that’s something I do cook frequently. Really love all the fresh ingredients in these wraps.

      You should definitely try cooking a goose. If you can cook a duck you can easily cook a goose.
      the fresh ingredients really do make this the best recipe.
