Bacon ‘n Cheese Stuffed Beef Tenderloin
1 (10 to 12 inch) center cut beef tenderloin
1 cup crumbled bleu cheese
8 to 12 strips bacon, cooked and crumbled
2 to 3 tablespoons olive oil
Salt or garlic salt
Fresh ground black pepper
Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Make a cut down the center of the beef to make a pocket. Do not cut all the way through. Season pocket with garlic salt or salt and pepper. Stuff pocket with bacon and cheese. Close pocket to keep the stuffing in with plain wooden toothpicks or kitchen string. Drizzle the roast with some olive oil. Season outside of roast well with garlic salt or salt and pepper. Roast uncovered 30 to 50 minutes until internal temperature reads 135 degrees for medium rare or higher if you like it more well done. Remove from the oven and cover with foil. Let rest 15 minutes before slicing.
Not a fan if bleu cheese? You can use crumbled feta cheese or even shredded cheddar or Swiss cheese. Use whatever cheese you like!
