I had seen a recipe for pork roast wrapped in bacon a good while back and made a mental note to try it. I finally got around to it this week and wowza! It was AMAZING! But, then, what's not to love, right?? There were lots of bacon/pork roast recipes to be found on the web, but in the end, I just did my own thing with inspiration from all the different recipes out there. I think it turned out good enough to share, so here you go~!
2Mix 2T of the maple syrup, the sage, garlic, onion pwdr, pepper and salt to form a paste.
3Rub the roast all over with the paste.
4Lay the strips of bacon, overlapping slightly over the top of the roast and tuck the ends underneath.
5Roast the pork for about an hour(for medium doneness. I like it a bit more done, so I adjust the time accordingly. Feel free to roast to your taste.) Remove from oven, brush the bacon with the remaining 1T of syrup. Return to oven and roast 10-15 min. more.
6Remove roast from pan and allow to rest for about 10 min. then slice and serve!
