Bacon-Wrapped Pork Tenderloin stuffed with Fig Goat Cheese

A fantastic pork dish using only three ingredients.


2 pork tenderloins

1/2 pound fig goat cheese, room temperature

8 slices thin bacon

1 teaspoon salt

2 - 3 teaspoons black pepper


Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.  Slice tenderloins length-wise, but not all the way through.  Lay flat and pound with meat mallot until 1/2" thin.  Take half the fig cheese and spread it on the inside.  Roll it up and wrap 4 slices of bacon around it.  Repeat with second tenderloin.  Sprinkle salt and pepper on both.

Roast about 40 minutes, switch oven to broil, and broil a couple of minutes until the bacon is crispy.  Allow to cool for 10 minutes before slicing.  Serves 4 - 6.  Note:  If you can't find fig goat cheese, mix together fig jam and plain goat cheese in a food processor.
