My mum has often talked fondly of this dish that her grandmother used to make, a way of using up left over roast pork. And good leftovers recipes are popular in this house, as we like to cook a large joint.
My version of poor man’s goose has potatoes in it (not accurate to my mum’s memory of the dish) and we all liked it so much, we had it twice in one week!
The only problem with the dish is how obviously not goose-like it is. The poor man in question could not have been fooled. However, I like the idea of a recipe from my great grandmother, modified and handed on (I’ll have my son cooking it soon) and the name somehow fits in with all those other economy comforting foods, like toad in the hole.
Ideal for a cold working day – slam it in the oven, and a filling tasty meal is ready later.
