"Made this for Christmas dinner and it was very well received! I roasted the garlic earlier in the day. When cool, I used the side of a wide blade knife to mash the roasted garlic into a paste, mixed with the horseradish & breadcrumbs and set aside. Took meat out of the frig 30 minutes prior to roasting. Followed the recipe exactly and it turned out perfectly. Will definitely make this again; easy and elegant!"
