  1. In a skillet, cook bacon until crisp. Remove bacon; crumble and set aside. Drain, reserving 1 tablespoon drippings.
  2. In the drippings, saute the mushrooms, onion and garlic until tender. Remove from the heat; stir in 1/2 cup of bread crumbs, parsley and bacon.
  3. Cut a slit lengthwise three-quarters of the way through the tenderloin. Lightly place stuffing in the pocket; close with toothpicks. Combine butter and Parmesan cheese; spread over top and sides of meat. Press the remaining bread crumbs onto butter mixture. Place meat on a rack in a shallow roasting pan.
  4. Bake, uncovered, at 350 degrees for 15 minutes. Cover and bake for 1 hour or until meat reaches desired doneness (for medium-rare, a meat thermometer should read 145 degrees; medium, 160 degrees; well-done, 170 degrees). Let stand for 10 minutes. Remove toothpicks before slicing.

Yum, yum, yum!! This was fantastic!!! My brother said it was the best thing I've ever cooked! As suggested, I doubled the stuffing, and tied it with butcher's twine rather than using toothpicks....

This was very tasty but I overcooked the meat. I'll make again and cook in less time.

Nice flavor but doubt I will make this ever again because there are better recipes. Used button and portabello mushrooms, ready cooked bacon as well as pancetta. Upped the bacon and pancetta a l...

this was just wonderful! My husband and children really liked it, thanks a bunch for such a great recipe!! will make this one again, and again!

Yum, yum and yum! I have made this roast three times now, and is delicous every time! I have always used cremini and shitake mushrooms instead of mushrooms to give it more flavor. I also buy ...

This was OK, but nothing flash, the cooking time was too long and it was slightly overcooked.

Pretty good...Had trouble getting the toothpicks out though.
