Active Time:   45 minutes

Total Time:  1 hour

Amount:  6-8 servings

  

Ingredients:

½ (8 ounce) package Essential Everyday™ Cream Cheese, softened

¼ cup finely chopped dried cranberries

3 tablespoons Essential Everyday Honey, divided

1 teaspoon chopped chives

¼ teaspoon Essential Everyday Ground Cinnamon

1¼ pounds boneless turkey breast tenderloins (3 tenderloins)

-  butternut squash, peeled

15 long chives for tying

¼ cup melted Butter

1 teaspoon chopped garlic

⅛ teaspoon cayenne pepper

 

Directions:

1.  Line a large baking sheet with aluminum foil; spray with cooking spray.  In medium bowl, combine cream cheese, cranberries, 1 tablespoon honey, chopped chives and cinnamon; salt and pepper to taste.  Mix until well combined; set aside.

2.  Cut each tenderloin into 5 sections; using a meat mallet, pound to ¼-inch thick; sprinkle with salt and pepper.  Set aside.  Using a vegetable peeler, peel 15 (1½-inch wide x 4-inch long) strips of squash, creating very thin ribbon like strips of squash.

3.  To assemble, place about 2 teaspoons cream cheese mixture in the center of turkey medallions; roll up.  Wrap with squash ribbons so that the turkey seam is facing up and the ribbon seam is facing down. Gently tie with a chive, creating a bundle.  Place on baking sheet.

4.  In small bowl, combine melted butter, 2 tablespoons honey, garlic and cayenne; salt and pepper to taste.  Brush over medallions.  Bake in a preheated 475°F oven 12-14 minutes or until turkey reaches 170°F on an instant read thermometer.  Serve warm or at room temperature.
