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~!

Lay the strips of bacon, overlapping slightly over the top of the roast and tuck the ends underneath.
