Bacon Wrapped Pork Loin

The pork loin came out so juice and tender with this recipe I was really surprised. We didn't even need a knife. The herbs really complimented the meat and bacon without over powering it. And really, what doesn't taste better with bacon right?!

Bacon Wrapped Pork Loin


Pork Loin

Fresh garlic

Fresh Rosemary

Fresh Oregano

Fresh Sage

Kosher Salt

Olive Oil


7-8 slices of  bacon

Chop all herbs.
Put all herbs in a bowl and add about 1T of salt and 1T of pepper. Add enough olive oil to make a paste.

Slather the loin on all sides with paste.

Wrap slices of bacon around the outside of the loin, tucking edges underneath.

Cover with foil and bake at 300 degrees for an hour and a half. Remove foil and bake an additional half hour. I ended up putting the broiler on the last few minutes to really crisp up the bacon.

Catch up Time Again

How does time get away from us so fast. The last time I posted I was getting ready for Keegan's 4th birthday party. He seemed to turn 4 so fast. And that last month and a half has gone by fast too. So I will do my best to try and catch you up. And we'll throw a few recipes in there too of course!

Let's start with Keegan's birthday party. He picked out the invitations all by himself, so essentially he picked the theme. One of his favorite things - trains. I had a great time making his cake.

But he might have had a better time eating his own personal cake.

And after his party we took him to visit the Weinermobile!
