  • 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.

  • To broil bacon-wrapped turkey, place on broiler pan; broil 4 to 6 inches from heat using times above as a guide, turning once.
  • The tapered ends of turkey tenderloins will cook unevenly. Pressing two tapered ends together forms a piece that is the same size and shape as the center pieces.
  • Turkey tenderloin is very lean. As these mignons grill, watch them carefully so they do not overcook and dry out.
  • The bacon is partially cooked so it is pliable enough to wrap around the turkey pieces.
  • Toss cooked pasta and veggies with Italian dressing for an easy accompaniment.
