Cooking Instructions

For stuffing:


1

Melt butter in large skillet over medium heat. Add onions and apples and cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 10 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Add garlic and cook 1 minute.


2

In large bowl, toss bread crumbs, parsley, cranberries, walnuts, thyme and sage. Add onion mixture and toss to combine. Set aside.


For roast pork:


1

Heat oven to 375°F. Lay pork out onto cutting board. Cover pork with stuffing and pat down. Sprinkle with shredded cheddar. Roll pork over the stuffing, ending with seam-side down. Tie roll with string in a few places to keep closed. Dry outside of pork with paper towel and season with salt and pepper.


2

Heat oil in large skillet over medium-high heat. Brown pork on all sides, about 8 minutes total.


3

Spray roasting pan with cooking spray. Transfer pork to roasting pan. Roast 60-75 minutes, until pork reaches internal temperature of 150°F. Transfer to cutting board and cover loosely with foil. Let rest 20 minutes. Slice and serve.


* To make your life a little easier, ask your butcher to butterfly the pork loin.
