Pork Tenderloin Bruschetta


Pork Tenderloin Bruschetta

The holidays are pretty much here. That means there is lots of cooking and baking going on all over the place. I am constantly running to the store because I forgot something on my list. I sure hope that I am not the only one like that! Today I am teaming up with Del Monte® to show you what a few pantry staples can do for the holidays. A well-stocked pantry can save a ton of time in this already crazy time of year.

Pork Tenderloin Bruschetta

I think a lot of times people focus on the meal for the big day, and forget about everything else. Lots of times you have guests that come and stay for a couple of nights. You have to feed those people, right? That is where this pork bruschetta comes in. With a little help from Del Monte® canned tomatoes you can have dinner on the table quickly, but it tastes like you spent forever in the kitchen. All it takes is a few pantry staples.

Pork Tenderloin Bruschetta

Having your pantry stocked with Del Monte® fruit and vegetables is like having a Garden in Your Pantry. Everything is picked and canned at the peak of freshness, so it really does taste like it is from the garden. I used two kinds of tomatoes for this bruschetta: a can of regular diced, and a can of diced with basil, garlic & oregano flavor. You really can use whatever combination you want for these. Just add in a little more oregano at the end if you choose two cans of the regular diced.

Pork Tenderloin Bruschetta

I am all about quick and easy dinners, even when you have guests. My family went crazy for this pork bruschetta; I have actually made it a few times now. Serve with a salad and some crusty bread for a quick dinner the night before the big day.
