Cheese-Stuffed Pork Tenderloin


My husband showed up at home with a huge case of pork tenderloin. After a little figuring, this is the best of the best recipes that I was able to come up with. It was a big hit at our house and is easily doubled.

3 servings


  • 2 green onions, chopped

  • 2 slices cooked bacon, crumbled

  • 3 tablespoons shredded Cheddar cheese

  • 2 tablespoons cream cheese, softened

  • 2 tablespoons frozen chopped spinach

  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped white mushrooms

  • ¼ teaspoon chopped garlic

  • 1 pinch dried parsley

  • salt and ground black pepper to taste

  • 1 pork tenderloin, butterflied and pounded flat

  • 1 cup dry bread crumbs


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a baking sheet.

  2. Mix green onions, bacon, Cheddar cheese, cream cheese, spinach, mushrooms, garlic, parsley, salt, and pepper in a bowl. Spread onto one side of pounded tenderloin. Roll tenderloin around the filling in a jelly-roll fashion. Coat rolled tenderloin with bread crumbs; place on the prepared baking sheet.

  3. Bake in the preheated oven until pork is no longer pink in the center, about 1 1/2 hours. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 145 degrees F (63 degrees C).
