This is a great entree to serve any time of year, but especially around the holidays. It looks so pretty with the red Currant Sauce and garnished with fresh parsley. —Gloria Bradley, Naperville, Illinois

Nutritional Facts

3 ounces cooked pork with 5 teaspoons sauce equals 351 calories, 16 g fat (4 g saturated fat), 84 mg cholesterol, 206 mg sodium, 27 g carbohydrate, 1 g fiber, 26 g protein.

Directions

  1. Place walnuts in a food processor; cover and process until ground. Set aside.
  2. Cook the sausage, apple and garlic over medium heat in a large skillet until meat is no longer pink. Drain; cool slightly. Stir in the ground walnuts, egg, parsley, salt and pepper.
  3. Cut a lengthwise slit down the center of the roast to within 1/2 in. of bottom. Open roast so it lies flat. Starting at the center, split each half of roast horizontally to within 1/2 in. of edge. Open halves so roast lies flat. Cover with plastic wrap. Flatten to 1/2-in. thickness. Remove plastic.
  4. Brush roast with apple butter; spoon sausage mixture over the top. Roll up jelly-roll style, starting with a long side. Tie with kitchen string at 2-in. intervals. Place on a rack in a shallow baking pan.
  5. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 1 to 1-1/2 hours or until a meat thermometer reads 145°. Let stand for 10-15 minutes before slicing. In a small saucepan, heat the sauce ingredients until smooth. Serve with roast. Yield: 12 servings (1-1/4 cups sauce).
Editor's Note: This recipe was tested with commercially prepared apple butter.

I served this roast for Christmas dinner and it was fantastic! I substituted pecans for the walnuts; otherwise I followed the recipe exactly. The current sauce is delicious!

We didn't have currant jelly and used cranberry sauce to replace currant sauce. Very delicious!
