Bacon Wrapped Pork Tenderloin Skewers

This is a very easy and delicious recipe - pork wrapped in pork, how can you go wrong!?!

Yield:  About 30 bites

1 pork tenderloin (1.5 - 3 lbs)
1 package center cut bacon
Salt and pepper, to taste
1 tsp garlic powder
2 tbsp olive oil
BBQ skewers

If you are using wooden skewers, soak them in water for at least 15 minutes before assembling, so they won't burn.

Take the pork tenderloin and gently slice it into bite-sized pieces.  They may not all be the exact same size, so if necessary, cut any thicker pieces in half to make them bite-sized.  

Once you have cut up the tenderloin, s
lice the bacon in half right down the middle, as you will only need a 1/2 slice for each piece of pork.  Wrap each piece with bacon around the outside, making it into a circle.  Skewer through the bacon and pork, placing about 4 pieces on each skewer, and being careful not to crowd them too close together so that they will cook evenly.

Once you have assembled all of the skewers, drizzle with olive oil on both sides, and then season with salt, pepper and garlic powder.

Grill on high for about 4 minutes per side, until the bacon is crisp.  Remove and let rest for about 5 minutes before serving.

Mmm.... grilled pork with.... grilled pork!
