Stuffed Pork way

I try to plan the next day's dinner the day before. This often takes longer than it should. A few weeks ago, a local grocery store had a steal on pork tenderloins and I stocked up. I searched for a few recipes online this morning but nothing really caught my eye. So, I winged it. I butterflied two loins, flattened each and added some minced onion to one side. I had some asparagus in the fridge that needed to be used so I blanched them for several minutes. Baby spinach was calling out to me, so I added a bit along with the asparagus on top of the onion. The other loin went on top and I secured the "sandwich" with bakers twine. Four strips of bacon was also rolled around the loins and secured with toothpicks. I browned the loins before putting them into the oven at 350 degrees for 45-50 min. It was delicious and there is enough for tomorrow night! Grand total = $ 3.18!!!!
