Apple Stuffed Pork Loin with Loaded Mashed potatoes ( Lots of cheese )

Pulled a small pork loin from the freezer and slice rolled it for the stuffing.
Sliced green delicious apple ( dipped in lemon ) a layer of my Dutch Apple Pie Jam, sprinkle of green onion, mixed up diced apple and diced bread and just enough jam to make wet. Spread that on top .
Rolled into a small fat roast. Tied up and coated with my Apple pie spice. let rest in fridge for 3 hours while I prepped the rest of the meal.

Boil of 2 pounds of yellow potatoes ( only because that's what we had )Mash really well and add butter and milk to make nicely beaten. Once cooled added 3/4 cup cheddar cheese, 1 cup Mozza cheese 2 table spoon of chopped green onions and the bacon and onion mix. Put into a glass pan sprayed with canola oil and a thin layer of Panko bread crumbs. Than add 1 cup of mozza cheese on top and into the fridge until the last hour.

Get smoker up to temp 250 deg. with a few mesquite chips and 2 small chunks on top of those . Light the chips and throw in smoker ( in my CI pan )
let smoke at this temp for 1/2 hour , bump up to 275 for 1 hour than 300 until IT of 146 deg. Bring in house and rest for 10 minutes.
In the last hour cut up carrots and boil/steam in pot. Potatoes in the oven for 45 minutes at 375 deg. than broil for about 6 minutes to brown the cheese
Make a small sauce for the pork of my Dutch Apple Pie Jam with 1/2 teaspoon of soya sauce and 1 teaspoon of corn starch
and cheese sauce for the carrots. And a helping of my Bread and Butter pickles

Well that's it everyone . Another great meal and fun to get back at some cooking after a busy weeks at work


The pork was very tender and juicy. And all the apple flavors were great. The Dutch Apple Pie Jam worked really well with the pork. And the potatoes were to die for and this will happen again

Glad you made it this far, thanks for watching

David, that looks really good, I mean REALLY good. I make a similar mashed potato casserole a lot and I always use yellow/gold potatoes, it's a crowd favorite around here...

You really nailed it, David. That looks down right delicious (just save my serving of carrots for the next guy--never did like carrots LOL).
Is that your apple pie spice on the outside of the roast??
If you feel like sharing, I'd sure like your recipe for Dutch apple pie jam--sounds good.

Thanks Gary for the love and the comment

Yes I used the Apple Pie Spice on the outside of the Loin and The Dutch Apple Pie Jam inside the Loin . Also made the sauce with the jam and a little soya sauce and corn starch.

Sorry I ate all the carrots tonight for my second round at the meal.

Here is a link to the jam, I hope
I will send also the Apple Pie Spice mixture , I use it on lots of baking. Thought it would be good on the loin , and it was


Hope all is going well with your hand.
