Sage Apple Stuffed Pork Tenderloin in Bacon

Only 7 Ingredients in this Sage Apple Stuffed Pork Tenderloin in Bacon  ! Juicy, tender and bursting with flavor ~ and the BEST part = all wrapped in Bacon !

The name is such a mouthful and yet so easy to make. There are no weird ingredients in this Sage Apple stuffed Pork Tenderloin in Bacon and besides maybe the Pork itself, you should have everything else on hand.

Sage Apple Stuffed Pork Tenderloin in Bacon ~ Only 7 Ingredients in this Main dish ! Juicy, tender and bursting with flavor ~ and the BEST part = all wrapped in Bacon ! #Thanksgiving #PorkTenderloin #AppleStuffing

Roy and the kids loved this, although Cheri did remove her Apple Stuffing {she does not like warm fruit}, so I'm not sure whether her vote counts !

The Pork needs no marinating as Tenderloin just about always cook to a juicy, tender deliciousness and in this recipe all the flavoring comes from the inside and the outside of the Pork.

You will also note that I am not using any Salt and Pepper in the recipe below, as the Sage flavors the Stuffing {but I recommend you taste the Stuffing and if you like, add a bit of Salt and Pepper}.

And Bacon of course is very salty by itself - therefore no additional Salt and Pepper required,but as always if you like really salty dishes, add some, but be careful and remember the salty Bacon ;-)

I used 2 fairly large Tenderloins and sliced each into around 3 centimeter {just over an inch} thick slices, and ended up with 16 slices. No need to slice the Tenderloins into slices though, you can also slice them into bigger one-piece servings - however you prefer.


8 - 10 Servings


2 TB Olive Oil
1 Red Onion, finely chopped
3 Apples, peeled, cored and chopped
2 t Dried Sage
1/3 cup Walnuts, chopped
2 Medium (450g each) Pork Tenderloins, slit open down the length but not through
14 - 16 Strips Bacon


1.) Pre-heat the oven to 180 deg C (350 deg F) - spray a 20 x 30cm oven dish with cooking oil.
2.) Heat the Oil in a medium pan - saute the Onion, Apples and Sage until tender - stir often - remove from heat - stir the Walnuts into the warm Apple mixture and let cool.
3.) Spoon the Apple stuffing into the slits of the Pork Tenderloin - press a little, but make sure not to over stuff the Pork - close the opening and wrap the Bacon around the Tenderloin - secure with toothpicks.
4.) Bake 40 - 45 minutes or until done - remove from oven and let sit for 10 minutes before slicing.

Serve with a Gravy of your choice, mashed potatoes and vegetable sides.

  24. Got around to making this tonight and the pork is just as delicious as promised!
    A couple of changes: we saw fresh wild rosemary while out walking so substituted that for the sage. Also no 'proper' bacon in Spain so wrapped the tenderloin in thin Serrano ham slices instead. Definitely one to make again and again. Thanks Linda!

  25. Love this... it's got great seasonal flavors and BACON. Pinned. Thanks for bringing this by Weekend Bites.

  26. Wow! This looks delicious! Thanks for sharing your yummy recipe at The Pin Junkie. Just wanted to let you know that it's featured in a Thanksgiving recipe roundup at The Pin Junkie at
