I love traditional holiday food, but I also love creating new recipes that I can pass down to my girls one day. My Bacon Wrapped Pork Tenderloin covered with my homemade Cranberry Sauce has the perfect mix of the traditional holiday flavors that will make the perfect addition to any holiday table.
The best news is this yummy recipe is Whole30 and Paleo compliant. You can also remove the cranberry sauce to make it Keto. Pairing the cranberry sauce with the pork is the perfect combination of savory and sweet.
I have been working on making the perfect Whole30 compliant cranberry sauce for a long time and I finally feel like I perfected it. I developed two options so you can choose based on your taste buds, tart or sweet. I prefer a more tart cranberry sauce while Joel like his a little sweeter. If you are wanting a sweeter sauce, simply add the mashed dates that I explain in the instructions on step 1.
What sides can I serve with this meal?
Anytime I think of holiday meals, mashed potatoes comes to mind. An easy healthy swap is my creamy cauliflower mash that will complete this holiday dish. If you are interested in making my cauliflower mash, you can find my recipe here. You can also serve with sautéed green beans or a beautiful crisp side salad with my homemade ranch dressing.
What else can I serve my leftover cranberry sauce with?
I absolutely love turkey lettuce wraps slathered with leftover cranberry sauce. I will use a piece of butter lettuce and fill the bottom with cranberry sauce then add leftover holiday turkey, ham or deli meat.
This may sound weird, but I also like to top my creamy chicken salad with a big spoonful of this cranberry sauce. It is the perfect combination of savory and sweet.
