As mentioned when I started posting these recipes a few months ago, one day Wayne came across an article with a list of holiday worthy roasts that he wanted to try. We’ve tried several of them, and the ones we’ve tried have been absolutely delicious. It may take us a while to complete the list, so I thought I’d go ahead and post this, then I’ll just add our links as we successfully complete them. How long do you think that will take???

Here’s the list. The original was in a rather random order, so I changed it.

Roast Leg of LambEaster dinner 2020 was a success!

Rack of Lamb – This is a cut of meat I’d never purchased before, and I discovered it’s amazingly easy to prepare and makes a very impressive presentation.

Pork Loin Roast – Here’s our version, and the leftovers made a great sandwich for lunch the next day.

Cider-Glazed Pork – This is the first one we tried. It was delicious!

Roast Pork Loin with Apples and Onions

Crock Pot Pork Roast – We loved the Honey Balsamic Glaze that was pasted on this pork roast. It made quite a bit and we had leftovers of pork and glaze over rice, and also used the glaze on sauteed chicken breasts.

Stuffed Pork Loin

Instant Pot Pork Tenderloin

Best-Ever Glazed Spiral Ham

Maple Glazed Ham Steak

Bacon-Wrapped Turkey

Roast Turkey

Ranch-Seasoned Roast Turkey – Although we don’t usually have Thanksgiving dinner at home, I still like to cook a turkey in November. This recipe was a good candidate for the occasion.

Herb and Butter Roasted Turkey

Citrus and Herb Butter Roasted Turkey

Apple Cider Brined Turkey

Skillet Roast Chicken – The chicken I got at Costco didn’t fit in our cast-iron skillet, so I used a regular roasting pan instead. It still turned out well.

Cider-Roasted Chicken with Walnut Goat Cheese and Red Grapes

Tuscan Butter Roast Chicken

Best Chicken Pot Roast

Classic Roast Chicken – I can’t see much difference between this recipe and the one above, maybe it’s the lemon added to the cavity. We didn’t notice much taste from that lemon when we tried this though, maybe we should have squeezed some of the juice out first, but it was still very moist and delicious.
