Wrap one piece of raw bacon around each tenderloin and secure with one or two toothpicks.
Coat the inside of the baking dish with cooking spray, then lay the tenderloins flat in the dish.
Place the bacon-wrapped tenderloins on the grill and cook for 5 to 7 minutes per side, or until the center is no longer pink and the bacon is crispy.
Remove the bacon from the pan and pat it dry with paper towels to remove any excess grease.
Place the baking dish on the middle rack of the preheated oven and roast for about 30 minutes.
I’m proud to say that I’m living up to my commitment with eating a lighter diet after the holiday feeding frenzy and I’ve dropped a few pounds already. All it takes for me is a little momentum and I can stick with it. It actually feels great to be eating lots of fruit, vegetables, and lean meats. Holiday food is fun for a short period of time, but it’s always good to get back to healthy eating!
Turkey tenderloins, much like chicken tenderloins, are breast meat, but much more tender than the larger breast portion. The bacon imparts a smoky flavor to the turkey, and if you’re careful to cook them to 160 degrees, they are juicy and deliciously tender.
This might be one of the simplest dishes in terms of ingredients that I’ve ever posted. If you’re looking for a healthy, five-ingredient dinner (not counting salt and pepper), then this is the recipe for you. I really need to keep this one on my regular rotation of weeknight suppers.
