  7. Quickly remove the tenderloin tips for the skillet and cool in fridge.

  9. Stand the wrapped Tenderloin Tips up on a sheet pan so that the bacon is on its side leaving some space in between.
  10. Pack about 1 tsp of Maytag blue cheese in the center of the bacon. Cover pan with plastic film and refrigerate until service.
  11. Preheat oven to 450 and heat the bacon-wrapped tender tips for 5-8 minutes or until cheese is melted.
