I saw Giada from Food Network make this and it looked so delicious I had to try it, and it was FANTASTIC! The directions on the FN site do not say to lay the twine in the pan FIRST, THEN add the roast, then the bacon. But this is how she did it on the show and it looks much easier to tie it up that way. I also double the garlic as we love garlic. I hope you try this for any special occasion. Time does not include resting time.
