Stuffed pork tenderloin is a faster alternative to turkey for your holiday meal



  • 2 packages of sweet cornbread mix – make and bake according to instructions ahead of time.
  • 1 package of boxed stuffing
  • 1 stick of butter, melted
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon of sage (more if needed by taste)
  • 32 oz chicken broth
  • 2 pork tenderloins, split lengthwise down the middle


  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. Crumble the cornbread into a large bowl once it has cooled.
  3. Add the boxed stuffing.
  4. Pour in the chicken broth and stir until all of the breading is moistened. Let it sit for a few minutes to soak it all up.
  5. Next mix in the three eggs.
  6. Add the melted butter and sage and stir until well combined.
  7. Cut the pork tenderloins down the middle, but not all the way through.
  8. Open each tenderloin up, and spoon dressing all along the middle.
  9. Close with about 5-6 toothpicks holding the sides together.
  10. Brush with olive oil and bake for 45 minutes.
  11. After 45 minutes, check the meat thermometer. They should be at least 145 degrees.
  12. Once they have reached 145 degrees, turn on the broil for 3-5 minutes.
  13. Remove the tenderloins from the oven and let rest for 3 minutes before serving.
  14. Bake the leftover dressing in an 8 x 8 casserole for 45 minutes on a lower shelf in the oven while the tenderloin is baking.
