Pork Roast with Apple Topping Recipe

Publisher Photo
Meet the Cook: Since I was in 4-H, I've been an avid cook. This recipe's one my mother-in-law and I developed together. The topping also goes great with pork chops, lean sausage balls or patties and ham. My husband and I have seven children, 15 grandchildren and one on the way. Gardening's our favorite pastime. -Paula Neal, Dolores, Colorado

Wonderful variation on pork roast! A little something different from the traditional spices on a fall day!
