    Sarahdoo10's Note:

    My husband says this dish reminds of him of bacon wrapped scallops. It has that savory, yet slightly sweet taste. Quick and easy to make. I initially planned to wrap the filets with the bacon, but the bacon cooked up to fast and so I just finished it in the pan with the filets.

      Simple and delicious. Changes I made were solely in the cooking method. I diced the bacon and sauteed it in the pan. Poured off the fat, added the butter and proceeded from there. Made for New Kids on the Block Tag game. :)

      This was very very tasty! I followed the instructions only making two batches of this recipe and like Lori Mama I sauteed the bacon first, drained the fat and added butter and continued with the recipe. Definately a keeper. Thank you for posting. Made for Spring PAC 2013.
