Bacon Wrapped Pork Tenderloin



2 Tablespoons olive oil
1 Golden Delicious apple, cut into fine dice
⅓ cup shallots, minced
1 Tablespoons rosemary, finely chopped
¼ teaspoon salt
½ cup seasoned bread crumbs
1 Tablespoons Dijon mustard
¼ teaspoon pepper
1½ pounds pork tenderloin, butterflied and pounded to even thickness
10 strips of Applewood bacon

Recipe directions: 

Heat oven to 450 F. Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium low heat. Add apple, shallots, rosemary and salt. Cook for 10 minutes. In a medium bowl, combine the bread crumbs, mustard and pepper. Add the apple and shallots mixture and stir to combine. Spread the stuffing mixture in a line along the center of the pork tenderloin. Bring the edges of the meat together and return to original shape. Secure with toothpicks. Line a baking sheet with foil and place bacon closely together onto sheet. Place tenderloin on top of bacon and wrap each piece of bacon around the pork to form a log. Turn the tenderloin over, bacon seam side down. Roast for 25 minutes. If desired, broil for a few additional minutes to brown the bacon. Let rest for 10 minutes before slicing.
