Pork Tenderloin stuffed with Sausages & Lemon Dijon

I'm not sure why this recipe for pork tenderloin didn't come to me sooner but I'm sure glad it finally did.

And it's so easy.

Simply butterfly and flatten a couple pork tenderloins, spread on a little sauce made of dijon mustard, fresh thyme and lemon zest, add a couple whole sausages, roll them up, tie them and onto the grill they go.

Choose whatever flavor sausage you like.  I first looked for mild Italian and couldn't find any so I chose Bratwurst instead.

You can either reserve some of the Lemon-Thyme Dijon sauce or make this new Dijon, White Wine and Tarragon mustard sauce to serve with the pork tenderloin after it comes off the grill.

Lay a sheet of aluminum foil (large enough to hold one of the stuffed tenderloins inside) on your counter and spray it with cooking oil spray.

Lay a stuffed tenderloin in the center of the foil and sprinkle it with garlic powder.

Roll up the tenderloin inside the foil so it's completely enclosed. 

Repeat with the second tenderloin.
