I wanted to make something that was quick, healthy and tasty! You can never go wrong with pork tenderloin, always juicy and tender! I bought the pre-marinated apple bourbon and it was fantastic! To give it a different taste, I wrapped it in turkey bacon (jennie-o style!). Nothing goes better with pork than mashed potatoes and roasted veggies! I chose asparagus. Because I wanted to make it a quick dinner, I bought instant mashed potatoes, and they turned out really good surprisingly!
Pretty simple, preheat your oven according to package directions on the pork. Mine was 350°. Just wrap the pork with the turkey bacon and enclose the bacon with toothpicks. Place in the oven for 35-40 minutes or until the bacon is crispy on the outside and the middle is cooked through. While your pork is roasting, take a pan and cover with olive oil, lay your asparagus on the pan and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Cover a little more with olive oil over top. Roast for 30 minutes or until the asparagus is soft but crispy on the tips. Make sure to turn them around with a spatula every 10 minutes. To make the mashed potatoes, cook according to package directions. And you’re done!! Pretty easy, and healthy!! Great dinner for a night after a long day at work and much healthier than buying some take out!
