This is a recipe for a pork loin that I have purchased at a meal prep store and I searched to find the recipe. It is so good and really not hard at all. It is delicious. Kelly at KellysKorner is hosting a "post your favorite Thanksgiving recipes" today so I am posting this there. My family is not too keen on turkey, but they all love this pork loin. The ones I have made didn't have the bacon wrapped so I haven't done that. I have just used kitchen twine to wrap it all together. I would also at least double this recipe to feed our family of 6.
Cranberry Stuffed Pork Loin
1 (1-lb.) pork tenderloin
1 1/2 cups cooked herb-seasoned stuffing mix
1/2 cup cooked cranberries or whole berry cranberry sauce
4 slices bacon
1. Heat oven to 450ºF. Make long cut in center of tenderloin running the length of them eat, stopping about 1/4 inch from edge. Spread open; pound flat.
2. Spread stuffing on one half of tenderloin, leaving 1-inch border on long end. Spoon cranberries over stuffing. Fold other side of tenderloin over; wrap bacon diagonally around tenderloin, securing with toothpicks.
3. Bake 30 minutes or until internal temperature reaches 140°F. to 145°F. Let stand 5 minutes before slicing. Remove toothpicks before serving.
