Total Time30 mins
- 1 Smithfield Applewood Smoked Bacon Marinated Fresh Pork Loin Filet
- 1 package Smithfield Thick Cut Bacon
- 2 quarts oil for frying
- 1 cup flour
- 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
- 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
- 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
- 3 eggs
- 1/2 cup milk
- 3 cups breadcrumbs
- 2 tomatoes
- 1 head of lettuce
Cook bacon according to the directions on the package.
Heat oil in deep fryer or heavy skillet to 375°F.
Cut Smithfield Applewood Smoked Bacon Marinated Fresh Pork Loin Filet into 14 equal-sized pieces that are approximately 3/4" thick each.
Set up a dredging station with three bowls — flour, ground black pepper, onion powder and garlic powder in the first one, beaten eggs and milk in the second one and breadcrumbs in the third one.
Coat each pork loin piece in the flour and spice mix, submerge in egg wash and cover in breadcrumbs.
Fry in batches for 3 minutes per side or until a meat thermometer inserted into the pork loin filet reads 145°.
Use the breaded pork loin pieces as buns to create sandwiches by spreading mayonnaise on the bottom buns and topping them with lettuce, tomato slices and bacon.
