Pork Loin with Spinach Stuffing
Total TimePrep: 20 min. Bake: 2 hours + standing
- 1 package (10 ounces) frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
- 1/2 cup chopped onion
- 1 garlic clove, minced
- 3 tablespoons butter
- 1 cup soft bread crumbs
- 1/2 teaspoon salt

- 1 cup sour cream
- 2 tablespoons prepared horseradish
- 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard

Fabulous meal that's great for a holiday dinner! Assembles quickly. Works well with either frozen or fresh spinach. We didn't have dill weed but that didn't matter in the long run. We make this all the time.
