It's cold. 20's last night, 30's today. The sun is out though, so I shouldn't complain.
Good day for a stuffed and rolled pork loin and tattooed potatoes.
Here it is when it comes out of the oven.
Butterfly your loin of pork pound it out and stuff with a filling of your choice. I used bread stuffing in this one.
Dip in egg wash, then a mix of Panko and seasoned breadcrumbs and seasoning.
Brown quickly, then finish off in the oven. I use those heat resistant rubber bands to tie it. They are great, and you can find them at B B and Beyond and many other places. (don't forget to use your coupon! :) )
I make an apple chutney for the top. Slice a few varieties of apples, some onions and brown in butter. Sprinkle liberally with cinnamon and sugar. Add apricot flavored brandy and simmer. Pour over the top of the meat. I served it with tattooed potatoes.Halve the potato, toss in s and p and oil. Press an herb of your choice into the flat half. Place face down on a sprayed glass baking dish. Roast till browned, do not move it till it is done. I have shown how to do this in older posts. Very easy, just a nice presentation.
Our neighborhood marina is anxiously awaiting warmer weather to arrive. Right now, it is too cold, but in a month, people will start putting their boats at the dock.
Spring will come, in its own time! But for now, brrrrr!
