  1. When I saw this recipe I remembered how much fun stuffing a pork roast was when my kids were growing up. They always invited their friends to come see what Mom’s done now! This is a great recipe and a great idea for fall and winter months. I’ve even stuffed a roast with sweet potatoes mixed with brown sugar, butter and cinnamon. That’s good too. You can be creative with port. Thanks for joggin’ my memory about good times that I must re-create.
