This recipe combines the best things in the world--bacon, maple syrup, and brown sugar! Perfect for a dinner party, and easy enough for a university student to come up with, there's very little you could do to make this recipe go wrong--go on, impress your mother!
Serve with Parmesan risotto (see my profile for another easy recipe), potatoes (mashed or baked), or rice, and don't forget the veggies!
|2 tbsp||Unsweetened applesauce|
|3 tbsp||Brown sugar|
|2 tbsp||Maple syrup|
|1/2 Pkg||Maple Leaf © Bacon|
1) Pre-heat oven to 450 degrees F. Put a layer of aluminum wrap/ tin foil on a baking dish (one with sides, if possible).
2) Slice loin lengthwise so that it opens like a hotdog bun. Place the loin in the baking dish.
3) Spread a thin layer of applesauce on the open tenderloin. This will keep the pork moist in the oven and will not have a taste after cooking.
(Consider laying a piece of bacon lengthwise along the inside of the loin.)
4) Shut the loin. Lay a piece of bacon lengthwise along the top of the loin then wrap the loin in bacon. Alternatively, create a bacon weave and wrap the loin in the weave.
5) Create a thick layer of brown sugar on the top of the loin. When heated, it will melt down the sides. Pour a line of maple syrup on the loin—just enough to wet the brown sugar. If it pools, you’ve poured too much!
6) Bake at 450 degrees F for 30-40 minutes. Loin should have a glaze when done.
7) Slice thinly and serve on a bed of parmesan risotto or with potatoes.
