While you're frying up some eggs and bacon, we're cooking up something else: a way to celebrate today's food holiday.
A crown fit for a serious fan of the other white meat - March 7 is National Crown Roast of Pork Day!
Turn your normal meal into a royal feast with this white-capped crown of pork glory.
Known as the crown roast, pork loin is gathered into a circle with the rib bones pointing upwards like the peaks of a crown. Usually, this contains two rib racks, or 12 ribs from one pork loin, tied together with twine. This also means "Frenching" the ribs - slightly cutting and cracking the bone so they can be molded into a crown.
A holiday entree fit for a king, or just worthy of celebrating the fact that it's Wednesday, the convenient crown shape also enables you to fill up the center with stuffing - so do with that what you will.
Serve a stately supper with this crown roast of pork, roasted garlic and gravy. It just may make a royal impression on that certain someone.
