Yield: two portions

Ingredients:

2 lb. boneless, skinless turkey breast
1 bun. sage leaves, washed and dried, removed from stem
6 each bacon strips, raw
1/2 c. vinaigrette dressing (your choice)
6 each toothpicks, soaked in water 4 hours minimum



Procedure:
Trim the turkey breast, and cut it into six pieces as evenly as possible with the grain of the meat. Shape each piece of turkey into a round with the cut flat sides bottom and top.

Press two sage leaves on the outside of each turkey mignon and hold them in place by wrapping one strip of bacon around the outside of the turkey.

Repeat this step for each turkey mignon. Secure each strip of bacon with a toothpick.

Dip the wrapped turkey mignons into the dressing, and cook in a pre-heated grill unit with indirect medium heat, adding wood chips if desired, for 15 to 20 minutes, turning after 5 minutes. The turkey will becomes golden brown and the bacon will brown lightly. Checking for doneness: a meat thermometer will register 160°F at the thickest part of each mignon.
