Cooking your holiday roasts!!

If you brought one of our special Stuffed Hazelnut Cranberry En Croute Roasts from Whole Foods, here are some simple cooking instructions to make it the perfect centerpiece for your feast!!!

This special holiday item has a rich outer layer of hazelnut infused grain meat, evocatively seasoned with sage and rosemary and stuffed with a sausage-style stuffing made from grains, cranberries, apples and crystallized ginger.

To serve, simply thaw for 4 hours, pre-heat oven to 425 degrees, unwrap, place roast on a sheet pan and heat in oven until golden brown (approx 30-40 mins). Let cool for 10 mins and cut into 1" slices.

If you bought our famous celebration roast, here is a simple recipe which we think brings out the fantastic flavors!


1/2 inch slices of Celebration Roast
1 onion peeled and sliced into 1/4 in rounds
Extra virgin olive oil
Black Pepper
Balsamic Vinegar
Chopped parsley

Toss peeled onion in some of the olive oil, slightly salt and place on sheet pan. Roast onion in 350 degrees oven until brown or slightly blackened. Place sliced celebration roast on a platter, interspersed with the roasted onion. Dress with olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Sprinkle with black pepper, garnish with chopped parsley.

any suggestions for roasting it whole? I was thinking about just putting it in a roasting pan with some water or broth, carrots, onions, potatoes and herbs...

p.s. the apple sage sausages are SO good!

It is great roasted whole, however it only needs to be in the oven for 15 minutes at 375 degrees, otherwise it can become too dry. It is already pre-cooked so doesn't need all the time vegetables would take. I would add it to your pan 15 minutes before the end of cooking time for the veggies, and lightly baste it with the water or broth used and let all the flavors mingle together. YUM!
