Ingredients

For the glaze

  • 2 Tbsp unsalted butter
  • 2 Tbsp maple syrup
  • 2 Tbsp bourbon
  • 1 tsp fresh sage finely chopped

For the turkey

  • 1 ¼ - 1 ½ lb turkey tenderloin
  • ½ tsp Kosher salt
  • 10-12 slices prosciutto

For the white wine sauce (optional)

  • ½ cup white wine
  • 3 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 1 Tbsp sherry vinegar
  • chives thinly sliced, optional garnish

Instructions

  • Make the glaze. Preheat oven to 425 F. Combine all glaze ingredients in a small sauce pan. Heat over medium-high heat and bring to a boil. Remove from the heat.

  • Season and wrap the turkey. Season the turkey tenderloin(s) with kosher salt, then brush with glaze on all sides. Meanwhile, place a piece of parchment on a rimmed baking sheet. Layer prosciutto slices on top of each other to form a rectangle slightly larger than the tenderloin. Place turkey in the center of the prosciutto, then carefully use the parchment paper to help lift and fold the prosciutto up, over, and around the tenderloin, sealing on all sides by lightly pressing the prosciutto down. Repeat with remaining tenderloin (if cooking two).

  • Cook the tenderloin. Cook in a preheated oven for 30-35 minutes or until the internal temperature of the turkey is 165 F and the prosciutto is crispy. Allow turkey to rest 10 minutes before slicing and serving. Note: cook time is based on thickness of the tenderloin and may need to be adjusted. Always check temperature to ensure proper doneness.

  • Make the quick wine sauce. Combine white wine, butter, and sherry in a small sauce pan. Bring to a rapid boil, then allow to reduce for 2-3 minutes. Cut turkey into ½" thick slices, then serve with sauce on the side for dipping. Garnish with chives (or other fresh herbs), optional.

Notes

  • Don't have sage? Substitute with rosemary or thyme. 
  • Turkey tenderloins are often sold as two smaller tenderloins (as shown here, totaling about 1.3 lb). You may also see them sold as one longer tenderloin. The same method can be used regardless of size or weight. The key is to note that cook time varies based on thickness of turkey. As long as you use a meat thermometer to begin checking doneness around 30 minutes, you're good. Turkey is safe to eat at an internal temperature of 165F. We recommend removing the turkey when it is around 160F as the temperature will continue to rise as it rests.
