Maple Dijon Pork Tenderloin on a bed of sweet potatoes, apples, and bacon...all drizzled with a sweet and savory maple Dijon sauce and topped with fresh sage. This all in one meal is simply delicious!
I've always loved having friends over for dinner, and I love making memorable dishes. Something on the fancy side. At the same time, of course, I want to be able to enjoy their company and not be stuck in the kitchen the whole night! So coming up with delicious, memorable dishes that are low maintenance is a must.
And this Maple Dijon Pork Tenderloin definitely fits the bill! It's sweet and savory, with apples, bacon, sweet potatoes, fresh sage, brown sugar, maple syrup, and Dijon mustard. The flavors complement and play off of one another in a way that leaves you wanting more.....just right for your dinner party.....and hopefully, someday, mine!
