Stuffed Pork Roll

We eat a lot of pork and after a while it can get boring so I thought I would try something new. This could easily be done with chicken breast too. I enjoyed this as did my husband but the kids needed a little ketchup coaxing.

12 oz pork loin cut into 4 equal medallions
8-12 slices smoked turkey - divided by 4
4 ounces Cheese - I used mozzarella for the kids and habanero cheddar for Hubby and myself
16 asparagus stalks
Salt & pepper
oil for frying

Using a meat hammer, pound the pork medallions out until they are nice and thin but not to the point where holes are tearing. Season pork with salt and pepper, lay turkey evenly over the 4 pork medallions then the cheese and 4 asparagus stalks on each. roll the stuffing up inside the pork and pin roll with a toothpick.

Add some oil to a hot frying pan and fry the pork rolls on each side until they are golden brown and done through.

I grew up kosher. But I must say, I gave that up and now love pork. Recipes like this make me a pork eater.
