Notes









Tips

Expert Tips

  • Use thin or regular slices of bacon instead of the thick-sliced variety so the bacon cooks in the time the roast cooks.
  • The roast can be coated with the herb mixture and covered with the bacon several hours ahead of time; cover and refrigerate. Add a few extra minutes to the baking time.
  • Garnish the roast with fresh herbs and crab apples.
