Bacon Wrapped Pork Medallions

So, I love bacon.  It is one of my top two favs, right next to cheese.  Cheese and bacon make everything beautiful, not to mention tasty!!

Ingredients:

  • 8 slices bacon
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon seasoned salt
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 2 pounds pork tenderloin
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Combine garlic powder, seasoning salt, basil, and oregano in a small bowl. Set aside.

    I bought the pork loin and cut it into about 1  1/2 inch slices.  Wrap the medalions with a slice of bacon, I used HyVee brand, thick sliced, hickory flavored to add a little smoke flavor.   

    Sprinkle both sides with the seasoning mix.  If you don’t have these specific seasonings, you can substitute with a delish pork rub.

    Put medallions on a (PAM sprayed) ovensafe cooling rack, then onto a 1 inch deep baking sheet for bacon dripings…you don’t want that in the oven.  Place in a preheated 400 degree oven for about 30-40 minutes. 

    I could not get an “after” picture because it was eaten way too quickly!!
