Ingredients

6
slices bacon
2
fresh turkey tenderloins (about 3/4 lb. each)
1
tablespoon olive oil
1/4
teaspoon pepper
1/4
teaspoon dried thyme leaves
  • 1 Heat grill. Cook bacon in medium skillet over medium heat for 2 to 3 minutes per side or just until bacon begins to brown but is not crisp. (Bacon needs to be pliable to wrap around turkey.) Drain on paper towels.
  • 2 Cut each turkey tenderloin crosswise into 4 pieces; press the 2 tapered end pieces of each tenderloin together to form 1 piece. Wrap 1 partially cooked bacon slice around each piece of turkey; secure with toothpicks. Brush both sides of each with oil; sprinkle with pepper and thyme.
  • 3 When ready to grill, place bacon-wrapped turkey on gas grill over medium heat or on charcoal grill 4 to 6 inches from medium coals. Cook 12 to 15 minutes or until turkey is no longer pink in center and bacon is browned and crisp, turning once. Remove toothpicks before serving.
