    It was my birthday. At my age, I don't want to celebrate birthdays anymore but it does allow for a day She Who Must Be Obeyed makes some of her best dishes and I get to fire up the pellet smoker. It gave me the chance to try something that had rattling around in the void that is my brain, Smoked Three Pig Cordon Bleu. The three pig part is a pork loin stuffed with ham and wrapped in bacon. Adding cheese to the ham filling makes it Cordon Bleu.

    I started by book cutting a small pork loin. You start by cutting one third of the way from the bottom of the pork loin almost all the way through.


    Turn the roast 180 degrees and cut one third of the way from the top almost all the way through.


    Open both cuts and you end up with a long strip of pork roast. I seasoned both sides of the strip with Louisiana Grills Bourbon Molasses seasoning.


    I covered it with a layer of thin cut ham. I used a loin ham I had made.


    I covered that with thin sliced Swiss cheese.


    I rolled it up and tied off both ends.


    I draped the roast with sices of bacon.


    I put it in the pellet smoker at 210 F.



    I smoked it for about 2 hours to an internal temperature of 110 F.


    I increased the heat to 400 F and cooked the roast to an internal temperature of 155 F. I took it off the grill and tented it with foil to sit for 10 minutes.



    I sliced it up and we served it with SWMBO's wonderful mac and cheese and her strawberry spinach salad.



    The Verdict

    This was very good. The sweet seasoning with the ham and bacon gave a sweet salty taste that went well with the ham. It also looks very good.

    That looks really good! did the cheese hold up at 400 or did it start to melt out?

    That looks delicious!  Another great post and another great idea!  I would have eaten that whole roast by myself! POINTS!!!
     
  10. Disco,  I'm sending you a listing of a house that's for sale down the road from me,  I think you should move a bit closer so I can be tasting some of your foods and make sure they are as good as they look.    I gained something like 35 pounds so to me, that loin looks a bit sinful but nothing a few prayers wouldn't fix..

    Thanks, Adam. It was very tasty.
    The cheese flavour was there in the outer layer but melted into the meat. The rest was fine as I just finished it at higher heat to crisp the bacon.
    Thank you!

    Thanks for the point, hamrhead. I love pork loin too.
    Thanks, Case. Fortunately, no one had to yell "Clear!" during the meal.
    Thanks, chewmeister. I'd just as soon forget about the birthday.

    Har! Thanks, Justin. I suspect there are fine fixin's in your reffer.
    Har! You are a real man if you could eat the whole roast! Thanks for the point.
    Well, it would take a team of horses to pull She Who Must Be Obeyed away from Passing Wind Estates. She loves the mountains. As for being sinful, I have a reputation for that.
     
  14. Looks AWESOME Disco! Happy Birthday!
