Sausage-Stuffed Pork Roast

I’m a truck driver that loves to cook (much to my wife’s delight!). This savory roast is unique with its sausage and carrot filling, and it cuts nicely, too.
  • Total Time
    Prep: 30 min. Bake: 1-3/4 hours + standing
  • Makes
    12-14 servings


  • 1-1/2 pounds bulk pork sausage
  • 1/2 cup dry bread crumbs
  • 1/2 cup ricotta cheese
  • 1/2 cup shredded carrot
  • 6 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tablespoon dried parsley flakes
  • 1 boneless whole pork loin roast (3 to 4 pounds)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil


  • In a large skillet, cook sausage over medium heat until no longer pink; drain. Transfer to a large bowl. Add the bread crumbs, ricotta cheese, carrot, garlic and parsley; set aside.
  • Starting about a third in from one side, make a lengthwise slit in the roast to within 1/2 in. of bottom. Turn roast over and make another lengthwise slit, starting from about a third in from the opposite side. Open roast so it lies flat; cover with plastic wrap. Flatten to 3/4-in. thickness. Remove plastic wrap.
  • Spread sausage mixture over meat to within 1 in. of edges. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Roll-up jelly-roll style, starting with a long side. Tie several times with kitchen string and secure ends with toothpicks. Place seam side down on a rack in a shallow roasting pan. Rub oil over roast.
  • Cover and bake at 350° for 45 minutes. Uncover; bake 60-70 minutes longer or until a thermometer reads 160°. Discard toothpicks. Let stand for 10-15 minutes before slicing.

    I made this for our Mother's Day dinner. I thought it was just okay; but luckily everyone else really liked it.

    Awesome! Very easy to make. When I purchased the loin from my market I had them split the roast for me. Saved me some time. I do know one thing I will do different next time. That is use my blender to chop up the sausage. Very good and I can't wait to make this again. Thinking of even trying it on the grill!
