Crusted Turkey Tenderloin

This turkey tenderloin is crusted with honey mustard, lemon zest, rosemary, and oregano to transform it from a plain roasted turkey into a spiced up one. Honey mustard gives this turkey a sweet creamy bite, and, when baked, the herbs give off a pleasant aroma. The lemon zest adds a subtle, refreshing flavor that combines with rosemary to bring out the fresh garden flavors in this dish. Use this turkey to make some crusted turkey tenderloin sandwiches to get everyone excited for Turkey Day.

Honey Mustard Turkey Tenderloin

Honey mustard salad dressing gives this savory dinner dish a sweet, tangy taste. Garlic powder, basil, and oregano coat this turkey tenderloin to give it a well-seasoned sharp flavor that plays down the overly sweet dressing. Sweet basil and garlic powder give this turkey more of an Italian flavoring. Serve this with green beans to balance out the sugary honey mustard dressing with a steamed vegetable.
