  • 3 small sweet potatoes, washed and dried
  • 2–3 tablespoons oil
  • 1 tablespoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 3 small onions, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 2–3 tablespoons oil
  • 2½–3 pounds pork tenderloin, silver skin removed
  • Dried sage
  • Cayenne pepper
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • Salt
  • ½ cup hot pepper jelly, divided (We used Peggy Rose’s: PeggyRoses.com)
  • 12 ounces bacon
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • Fresh chives


  1. Slice potatoes lengthwise into wedges. Toss with oil, then add cumin, cinnamon and salt. Set aside.

  2. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Toss onion rings with oil and scatter on large sheet pan.

  3. Dust tenderloin generously on all sides with sage, peppers and salt. Lay on top of onions. Warm 2 heaping tablespoons of jelly in microwave for about 15 seconds and spread over tenderloin. Wrap with bacon and dust the bacon with black pepper. Place potato wedges on onions around pork. Roast for about 35 minutes until pork reaches 140 degrees by thermometer.

  4. Warm remaining jelly with balsamic vinegar and drizzle over pork. Let rest a few minutes before slicing.

  5. Garnish with chopped chives. Slice pork, top with the roasted onions alongside the savory roasted sweet potatoes.
