This one is for meat lovers: mouthwatering pork tenderloin filled with juicy sausage meat and wrapped in crispy bacon! My keto & paleo version is based on Bam's Kitchen recipe. I used flax meal as a grain-free alternative to breadcrumbs. Due to it's egg-like binding properties, flax meal holds the filling together and the sausage meat doesn't crumble when sliced.

Ingredients (makes 6 servings)

  • 500 g pork tenderloin (500 g/ 1.1 lb)
  • 1 tbsp ghee or lard
  • 1 small red or white onion (60 g/ 2.1 oz)
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 400 g gluten-free sausage meat (14.1 oz)
  • 1 tsp dried sage or thyme
  • 1/4 cup flaxmeal (40 g/ 1.4 oz)
  • 14 thin slices bacon or 7 regular slices cut lenghtwise (210 g/ 7.4 oz)
  • salt and pepper to taste (I like pink Himalayan salt)
  • Optional: serve with Ultimate Keto Gravy or Keto Cheese Sauce, crispy greens or Keto Cauli-Mash


  1. Prepare the filling. Finely dice the onion and garlic. Place on a pan greased with ghee and cook over a medium-high heat for a few minutes, until fragrant. Bacon Wrapped Sausage Stuffed Pork Tenderloin
  2. Remove the sausage casing and place the sausage meat in the pan with onion and garlic. Break into smaller pieces with a spatula. Bacon Wrapped Sausage Stuffed Pork Tenderloin
  3. Cook until the meat is browned from all sides. This will take just 6-8 minutes. Then, use a slotted spoon and transfer the meat in large mixing bowl. Add the sage and flaxmeal and season with salt and pepper to taste. Set aside and preheat the oven to 190 °C/ 375 °F. Bacon Wrapped Sausage Stuffed Pork Tenderloin
  4. Prepare the tenderloin (also known as pork fillet in the UK as opposed to pork loin which is much bigger). Cut the tenderloin lenghtwise almost all the way through leaving out about 1/2 inch (1 cm) so you can then open the tenderloin like a book. Cover the tenderloin with a piece of cling film and evenly pound the meat with a meat tenderiser/ mallet until about 1/2 inch (1 cm) thin. When done, set aside.

  5. Prepare the "bacon net". Lay 7 thin stripes of bacon on a chopping board. Then lay the remaining half of the bacon strips over in an alternating order ... Bacon Wrapped Sausage Stuffed Pork Tenderloin

  7. Put the pounded tenderloin over the bacon net and place the sausage stuffing in the middle so you can tightly roll it up lenghtwise. Bacon Wrapped Sausage Stuffed Pork Tenderloin
  8. Move the rolled tenderloin to the edge of the bacon net and roll it to wrap it round the tenderloin (be careful not to spill the filling). Secure the edges of the tenderloin with two toothpicks on each side so the sausage stuffing stays inside. Bacon Wrapped Sausage Stuffed Pork Tenderloin
  9. Place the tenderloin on a rack or baking sheet seam side down. Bacon Wrapped Sausage Stuffed Pork Tenderloin
  10. Bake for 35-45 minutes or until your meat thermometer reads 63-68 °C/ 145-155 °F depending on how well done you like it to be. If the bacon is not crisped up enough, place under a broiler for a few minutes. Bacon Wrapped Sausage Stuffed Pork Tenderloin
  11. Remove the tenderloin from the oven and let it rest for 10-15 minutes before slicing and serving. Remove the toothpicks. Try with Ultimate Keto Gravy or Keto Cheese Sauce, crispy greens or Keto Cauli-Mash. Bacon Wrapped Sausage Stuffed Pork Tenderloin

I changed the way I ate in 2011, when I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s, an autoimmune disease that affects the thyroid. I had no energy, and I found it more and more difficult to maintain a healthy weight.

That’s when I decided to quit sugar, grains, and processed foods, and to start following a whole-foods-based ketogenic approach to food.

I made this for 6 people using two pork fillets and 500g of sausage meat. I added a handful of finely chopped mushrooms to the onions, sausage meat and garlic and made a thickened mushroom intense sauce from chicken stock, black pepper, 2tsp of Dijon mustard and soaked porcini mushrooms. Cooked for 45 minutes at gas 5 and basted towards the end to keep very moist, this was lovely. Everybody enjoyed the meal which was served with roasted baby new potatoes, cauliflower and mange tout. I will make this again. Thank you.


Thank you for your lovely feedback!


Hi MartinaI made this over the weekend and served it with Hollandaise Sauce, brussel sprouts fried in butter and a little lemon rind and a courgette cheese bake. I put up a photo on FB so hope you get a chance to see it.
It was an instant hit with my family. Thank you for sharing.


Thank you Devialini, I just did! It looks delicious! 😊


I urge EVERYONE to try this recipe with the mustard sauce from the past post.  Together, they are a match made in keto heaven!!!


I haven't tried it but I will now! Mustard, pork and pickles are the perfect match 😊


Can you please supply the link to the mustard sauce? Thanks
