Ingredients:  
One center-cut boneless pork loin roast (4 pounds)
1/2 pound bacon, cut into 1 inch cubes
4 medium onions, cut into 1 inch dice
2 cups 1 inch cubes crusted day-old French bread
2 garlic cloves, crushed and finely chopped
2 rosemary springs, leaves removed and finely chopped
1 small bunch flat-leaf parsley, leaves removed and finely chopped
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
1-2 Tbsp olive oil or chicken broth, if necessary

Directions:
Directions:
Place bacon and onions in a roasting pan and roast, stirring once or twice, until onions are slightly golden and the bacon is semi-crisp, about 15 minutes. Transfer onions and bacon, with all the dripping to a bowl set the pan aside. (leave the oven on) Add the bread cubes, garlic, rosemary and parsley to the bowl and season with salt and pepper. You may need to moisten the mixture with a little olive oil or a splash of chicken broth. Let cool.
Meanwhile, prepare the pork: Preheat the oven to 450 F. Insert a sharp boning knife or other long thin knife into the center of one end of the roast and turn it in a circular motion to create a hole. Then insert a clean sharpening steel or the handle of a wooden spoon and push against the meat to create a larger space in the center of the pork lion. Continue until you've create a 1 1/2 inch-diameter tunnel all the way thorough the pork. Place stuffing in a pastry bag without a tip and pipe stuffing into the pork loin. Tie the pork into an even roll with kitchen twine. Season with salt and pepper and place in the roasting pan. Roast for 20 minutes. Turn oven to 325 F and continue to roasting for another 30 minutes, or until the internal temperature reach 145-150 on an instant-read thermometer. Allow Pork to rest on a rack set over a platter for 5-10 minutes. Slice the pork 1 inch thick.
