          I have gotten good Hungarian sausage (Gyulai kolbasz) available at my local Polish or Russian store, made a slit in the loin and stuffed it. Yum!

          Fruits do work well. Recently had one stuffed with cherries

              an amazing change-up is to soak the prunes in Armagnac or cognac before stuffing. Oh, baby.

              i love fruits with pork and other pig products work. Another suggestion would be greens such a s spinach, along with fontina.

                  I have done one with wild rice/dried apricots or breadstuffing/dried apricots. I wouldn't do plain dried fruit, but any fruit/nut/starch combo works. I could also see some more pig products inside, like proscuitto, bacon or as mentioned above sausage. MMMM pig, wrapped in pig....

                    I like the way you think ;-)

                    As for the fruit thing, I have served a homemade cranberry jam with a pork loin that I roasted on the smoker, It was delicious. Perhaps you can work cranberries into your stuffing. I like the idea of a fruit/starch combination.

                      +1, Cleopatra999 wild rice, apricots, pine nuts or sunflower seeds, or stuffing instead of wild rice. Have done it before and it is good.
