This elegant centerpiece entrée is actually very easy to prepare. Have the butcher cut and tie the crown roast for you. Simply roast, and bake the stuffing alongside in a separate casserole. Serve with buttered green beans amandine, a fruit salad and warm dinner rolls.

Random Cooking Tip:

For marinated pork chops, put pork in a self-sealing bag with marinade in the refrigerator first thing in the morning. By suppertime, pork chops can be removed from marinade -dispose of used marinade- and ready to grill.
