Stuffed Crown Roast of Pork

 Stuffed Crown Roast of Pork
I first made this recipe on Christmas...the oohs and aahs from my family were a delight! In addition to the holidays, I sometimes make a crown roast for Sunday dinner - it reminds me of my childhood, when Sunday dinners were always special. People would often stop by in the afternoon hoping to be asked to stay for a meal since Mom was such a good cook.
