Today is National Bacon Day. Yes, BACON! We all love it – but have you tried duBreton bacon? This Certified Humane®, GAP 5-Step and organic bacon is top-notch!
We often think of breakfast when it comes to bacon, but not me and what better way to celebrate #duBretonNationalBaconDay than by wrapping duBreton’s vegetable grain-fed pork tenderloin in the best crispy bacon around? I can’t think of anything more perfect! I’ve paired it with an amazing Spiced Cranberry Sauce to add some holiday flavours. The trifecta of sweet, savoury and tart will tantalize your taste buds and have you craving more.
Fresh ground black pepper
2 tbsp. canola oil
