"Last evening I made this pork for the second time. I used packaged bacpn bits and warmed them up in the microwave before adding them on the pork. We settled on seasoned mashed potatoes (sour cream and garlic) as the side. Everything was so good. This dish is quick and perfect for us working gals."

The whipped cream really adds a nice sweet flavor - but it's not too much."

"it was delicious. I didn't have any bacon ,so I sprinkled Bacos on it instead and it turned excellent. I liked it because it was so easy & quick & didn't heat up the kitchen much."
