Turkey Tenderloins – WINNER DINNER!

I found these in the Walmart Superstore and decided to give them a try for dinner - and what a winner!! They were eaten so fast I couldn't get a picture of the finished meal but I promise I will make them again and come back and put one here. If you click on the picture you are taken to the Jennie-O site that shows their nutritional value - only 1.5 grams of fat per serving.

I made Apricot-Herb Roasted Turkey Tenderloin, Skinny Mashed Potatoes, Light Cranberry Sauce and Pear Walnut Salad for dinner - all in about 30 minutes or less.

Roasted Turkey Tenderloin

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place tenderloins in baking dish and coat with apricot jam. Add chopped onions and top the tenderloins with rosemary, thyme, black pepper and granulated garlic/parsley mix. Bake until done, about 25 minutes. Remove from oven and let stand for 5 minutes before slicing.

Meanwhile make a batch of skinny mashed potatoes and light cranberries.

Serve with Pear Walnut Salad:
1 bag ready-to-serve romaine lettuce
1 slice cheddar cheese cut in thin strips
2 tablespoons toasted walnut pieces (use toaster oven on light setting)
1/4 red or green bell pepper, sliced thin strips
1 pear, cored and cubed, peel left on
1 carrot, shredded
1 lemon, grated zest and juice
1 tablespoon olive oil
fresh cracked black pepper
Toss ingredients together and serve.

This was a fast 30 minute dinner that had holiday charm and disappeared with gusto!
