I first made this appetizer on Christmas Eve a few years ago, and it has since become a tradition. Serve the pork slices alone or on small dinner rolls with hot mustard sauce, ketchup or horseradish. —Diana Beyer, Graham, Washington

"This would make a great holiday or "special occasion" dish. It's easy, but impressive looking and has great flavor. I used a larger pork tenderloin rather than 3 smaller tenderloins. I covered mine with foil and cooked it for about 45 minutes."

"I made this as part of a backstage buffet for performers at a concert. I made 4 tenderloins and not a scrap was left. I just sliced in thinly. bread and crackers were available, but I noticed most people just took a slice on its own. It got rave reviews."
