Ingredients

  • 1 pork tenderloin (3/4 to 1 pound)
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 cup soft bread crumbs
  • 1/4 cup minced fresh parsley
  • 1/4 teaspoon rubbed sage
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried rosemary, crushed
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 bacon strip

Directions

  1. Make a lengthwise slit about three-fourths of the way through tenderloin; open tenderloin so it lies flat. Flatten to 1/4-in. thickness; set aside.
  2. In a small skillet, saute onion in butter until tender. Add bread crumbs; saute until crumbs are golden brown. Remove from the heat. Stir in the parsley, sage, rosemary, salt, pepper and enough egg to moisten the ingredients.
  3. Spread stuffing on 1 long side of tenderloin to within 1/4 in. of edges. Close meat and place bacon on top; tie with kitchen string. Place on a rack in a shallow roasting pan.
  4. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 50-60 minutes or until a thermometer reads 160°. Let stand for 5 minutes before slicing.
