Recipe: Spinach-Stuffed Pork Roast
A Holiday Day Recipe
We love this particular pork roast recipe for St. Patrick’s Day or Christmas because of the green stuffing—but it’s delicious at any time of the year.

- 1/4 cup chopped red pepper
- 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
- 1/2 of a 10-ounce package frozen chopped spinach, thawed
- 1 cup soft bread crumbs
- 1/2 teaspoon garlic pepper
- Decor (we used lemons sliced to hold cherries; look for big, leafy edible leaves
- Preheat oven to 350°F. Untie roast and set aside. For stuffing, in skillet cook mushrooms, onion and red pepper in hot oil until onion is tender. Stir in remaining ingredients.
