What’s on your menu tonight? With very little time and effort, you could serve up an AMAZING meal like my Sage & Sweet Potato Hasselback Pork Tenderloin.

This tasty dish has everything going for it. The presentation is just beautiful, making it ideal for a dinner party. And the taste… well, it’s ridiculously good. Think bacon and sage stuffed into a pre-seasoned Hatfield Pork Tenderloin along with slices of sweet potato. All that goodness is then topped with a sweet & savory apricot glaze! Is your mouth watering yet?

And while that sounds like it would be time consuming and cumbersome, it’s actually super simple to prepare. In fact, this dish comes together in a flash. If you have good knife skills, the prep is maybe 10 minutes and then there is less than 40 minutes of bake time. That means, you can serve this up any night of the week with ease!

To get started, just grab a Hatfield Tuscan Herb Dry Rub Seasoned Pork Tenderloin and a sharp knife.

Place a couple of chopsticks on either side of the tenderloin then make slices every 3/4-inch down the length of the pork. The chopsticks act as a barrier preventing you from slicing through the pork so that you can stuff the pork with lots of other good stuff!

Once you have your pork sliced, cook up some chopped Hatfield Bacon with fresh sage. That amazing combination gets stuffed down into each of the slices you made in the pork along with sliced sweet potato.

Pop the stuffed pork on a sheet pan and bake at 375º F for about 35 minutes. As the pork cooks, you can throw together a simple apricot glaze by heating apricot preserves with some sherry cooking wine and dijon mustard. That delicious glaze gets spooned over the pork during the last 5 minutes of cook time.

You won’t have to bother calling your family up for dinner. The amazing smell will have them running to the dinner table.

Pop this baby on the table and watch as everyone oohs and ahhhs over how great it looks. Then go ahead and give yourself a pat on the back… no one has to know how ridiculously easy this is to prepare.

Publix has everything you need to put this on the table TONIGHT! Go ahead and load up your fridge with plenty of those delicious and super convenient Hatfield marinated loin filets & tenderloins and bacon items so you can have a tasty meal ready in a flash!

  • Slide the sliced sweet potatoes down into the slits with the bacon mixture.
  • Place the stuffed pork on a baking sheet and bake at 375º F for 30 minutes.
