  1. Step 1 – Prepare the Chanterelle Mushroom Stuffing
    1. Heat olive oil and butter in a large sauté pan over medium heat. Sauté shallots until softened. Add mushrooms, salt and pepper, garlic, and 1/2 cup of parsley. Cook until the mushrooms are soft, about 4 minutes. Add the wine and cook another minute or so, until wine cooks off. Remove mushroom mixture from heat.
  2. Step 2 – Pound out Pork Loin
    1. Slit tenderloins lengthwise down the center, leaving 1/2 inch of room at the bottom. Open tenderloin like a book so it lies flat. Cover with plastic wrap and pound with a meat tenderizer to flatten to 1/4-in. thickness.
    2. Remove plastic wrap and rub pork with olive oil. Then sprinkle pork with salt, pepper, and garlic powder.
    3. Place pork on a foil covered jelly roll pan.
    4. Soak 10 to 12 toothpicks in water to prevent them from burning, or use kitchen string to hold pork loin rolls together during roasting.
  3. Step 3 – Roll, Bake, and Serve
    1. Top pork loin with chanterelle mushroom mixture, leaving about 1/4 inch around the edges.
    2. Roll pork loin up jelly-roll style, starting with the long side.
    3. Wrap bacon around pork rolls.
    4. Tie the roast at 1-1/2-inch to 2-inch intervals with kitchen string, or use toothpicks to hold meat together.
    5. Sprinkle with a pinch salt, garlic powder and pepper.
    6. Roast (or grill) uncovered, at 425° for 35-45 minutes or until a meat thermometer reads 160° (If grilling, turn during grilling).
    7. Let stand for 10 minutes before slicing.
    8. Slice and drizzle with parsley oil.
    9. Serve and enjoy!
