Bacon-Wrapped Turkey "Filet Mignons" with Garlic Spinach
There’s no need to buy a $20-a-pound beef tenderloin to get great bistro fare at home. This ritzy dish takes a more economical approach by using turkey tenderloins instead!
Don’t choose a thick-sliced bacon for wrapping these medallions. It will take longer to cook and likely won’t get crisp before the turkey is cooked.
Cut each tenderloin crosswise into 4 steaks. Wrap each with a strip of bacon, securing it with a toothpick; season with salt and pepper.
Sauté turkey with 2 Tbsp. oil in a sauté pan over medium-high heat until golden brown, about 3 minutes per side. Turn filets on edges and brown the bacon all around, 3–4 minutes. Turkey is done when it reaches an internal temperature of 165°.
Let turkey rest 3 minutes, then remove toothpicks.
Heat 2 Tbsp. oil in same pan over medium-high heat. Stir in garlic and pepper flakes; sauté just until fragrant.
Add spinach, tossing with tongs until wilted; season with salt.
Serve turkey with lemon wedges to squeeze over meat and garlic spinach.
