Bacon-Wrapped Beef FiletsHappy Father’s Day! This recipe has what every man loves: bacon! My husband loves bacon. He loves it on omelets, salads, sandwiches, quesadillas, and of course steak. So this recipe was a special Father’s Day treat. It’s an easy way to wow that special guy in your family.

First start by preheating your oven to 400 degrees. Season both sides of your filets with salt, pepper, garlic salt, and dried thyme.

filet 1Wrap a thin piece of bacon around the filet and secure it with toothpicks.

filet 2Heat the butter in an oven safe pan. Use one tablespoon of butter per filet.

butter 3Add the filets to the pan and brown them on both sides.

filet 6Transfer the pan into the 400 degree oven. I baked my filets for 12 minutes, which resulted in filets at a medium doneness (145 degrees). If you prefer a different level of doneness, be sure to adjust the baking time and check with a meat thermometer.

filet 7Remove steaks from the oven and loosely wrap with foil so they can rest for 5 minutes.

filet 9Garnish each steak with fresh thyme and juices from the pan. Now you are ready to set the table and wow your dad with a wonderful Father’s Day meal.
