Whenever I use lamb saddle, I always have the tenderloins left over because they are small and difficult to cook and serve properly.  I use four tenderloins and fuse them together with transglutaminase.  They are then wrapped in bacon, sous vide to 132* and then crisped in the pan.  Served with soubise, gnocchi parisienne, pear-rosemary jam.
