Bacon Wrapped Pork Tenderloin Recipe from


I’m always looking for a new way to add a little excitement and change up some of our favorite dishes – especially meat. You see, Sam’s love for carbohydrates and sweets is very similar to my own, but he gets easily bored in the protein department. So… we like to keep things fresh in that department!

I can always depend on him to devour pork tenderloin and his love of bacon is well established around this house.

When he and his buddies are together and bacon is involved, you better triple the amount of bacon that you think is even reasonable to prepare. Teenage boys. I’m not sure where all that food goes!

So, I knew that this bacon wrapped would be happily received at my table! 

It is fairly simple to prepare. The presentation is beautiful, but the amount of work that it takes to get that end result is kind of like cheating. I begin with a pork tenderloin and about 4-6 strips of thick cut bacon, depending on the size of the pork tenderloin.

I cut my bacon slices in half and then wrap them over the top of the pork tenderloin, being sure to tuck the ends underneath.

Then, I just sprinkle on salt, fresh cracked black pepper and a little garlic salt and pop it into the oven for about 45 minutes.

It’s delicious with a large salad, roasted vegetables or, if my son is choosing, a huge serving of mashed potatoes!

Here’s my Bacon Wrapped Pork Tenderloin recipe. I hope you love it!

  1. We raise a couple of pigs every summer. Well, actually we start in spring and finish in fall. Anyhow, we have a freezer filled with pork (roasts, tenderloin, chops, ribs, bacon, sausage, you get the idea) and I am always looking for new ways to cook it. Love the bacon wrapped pork tenderloin idea…… pork wrapped in……. pork. Which I have plenty of! My family will love it!

  2. I have made a dish similar to this with about twice the amount of bacon. I also made a BBQ glaze to put on it. I let the bacon and pork cook until done, then coat with BBQ glaze and put under the broiler for 1-2 minutes. Repeat this as many times as you like until you get the crust you want. Delicious.

  3. My husband and I love those little pork tenderloins, just enough for us to eat and have leftovers for the week. This has to be good!! Pinning it!!

  4. Hi there and good morning! Just letting you know that I featured this recipe in my Deliciously Healthy Low-Carb Recipes round-up from last month. I hope a lot of my readers will come over here and check it out, great recipe!

  5. This sounds so very good. I’m making this tonight for my guys. I’ll let you know how well it goes over, but something tells me that I’m not going to be getting any bad reviews on this one. Report back later tonight. Thanks
