  • 1/4 Cup mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • Parsley, for garnish

Directions

Preheat charcoal or gas grill.

Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat.

Cook onion and mushroom until softened, about 5 minutes.

Wrap each tenderloin with 3 strips of bacon; secure with toothpick.

internal temperature reaches 170 degrees F.

Remove turkey; top with onions, mushrooms, and cheese.

Grill Shopping Tip

Think twice before buying a thicker piece of meat; a 2-inch thick steak takes four times (not twice) as long as 1-inch thick steak to cook.

Grill Cooking Tip

If you're cooking something that's been marinated, make sure to pat the item dry before it hits the grill. Any sugar in the marinade will burn.
