Bacon weave pork backstrap

Who doesn't like pork on pork......heck I don't know. This is a pretty easy recipe that will make your guests think you're fancy chef.

1 lb bacon thick cut bacon
1 lb pork loin - I used back strap from a wild hog
Cheesy spread of your choice - cream cheese works great, this time I used pimento cheese

Lay out the bacon in a weave, don't be scared it's not as hard as you think!

Then spread your creamy cheese of choice.

Then add your pork loin seasoned to your likings.

Roll it up tight, I used the skewers because I cooked it over a mesquite fire. So when flipping it I didn't want it to fall apart. You can cook it in the oven which is easier since you won't need to worry about flipping it. Cook it in the oven at 400 degrees for about an hour, it also depends how done you like your pork and how crispy you like your bacon.

When it's done be sure to let it rest for at least 10 minutes to let the cheese cool down.
