Turkey tenderloins are part of the turkey breast. They are sold separately in many supermarkets. (Did you know that if your market doesn't carry a food item, you can ask the manager if she will order it for you? These stores want to keep their customers happy.) Turkey tenderloins cook quickly and, because they are low in fat, can be dry. These quick and easy start with turkey tenderloin recipes prevent that by coating the tenderloins in crumbs, marinating them in sweet and savory ingredients, and cooking them by roasting, grilling, and sauteing.

Turkey has to be cooked to 160 degrees F. Use a meat thermometer to be absolutely sure of the final cooking temperature. Enjoy these easy recipes.

Start With Turkey Tenderloins

  • Turkey Cordon Bleu
    I adore this easy recipe. I left out the ham because I don't like it, but if you want you can add some chopped ham to the cheese before enclosing the filling with the turkey. This recipe bakes at a slow temperature so the turkey stays moist and juicy.
  • Lemon Turkey Tenderloin
    Ypu can marinate the turkey for 20 minutes at room temperature, or in the refrigerator for up to 24 hours. This method makes such tender and moist turkey.
  • Grilled Turkey Tenderloin with Stuffing
    Stuffing is grilled right beside the tenderloin in a foil pan. This easy method for cooking turkey and stuffing is a great choice for Thanksgiving - or anytime.
  • Italian Turkey Tenderloins
    Bacon and Italian salad dressing transform turkey tenderloins into a feast. The grill cooks these tenderloins in minutes and gives them a wonderful smoky flavor.
  • Crockpot Turkey Cassoulet
    This crockpot recipe is a wonderful way to cook a classic French dish. This isn't classic, but it sure is good!
  • Pineapple Chutney Glazed Turkey Tenderloins
    Any type of chutney will work well in this super flavorful and easy recipe.
  • Roasted Bacon Turkey Tenderloin
    Just bacon and turkey tenderloin in this super easy recipe combine to make a delicious entree. The bacon is partially cooked before wrapping the turkey to reduce the fat content.
