Butternut Squash Apple & Sage Stuffed Turkey Tenderloin from Lemony Thyme

Our Butternut Squash, Apple & Sage Stuffed Turkey Tenderloin smiles of Autumn Thyme.  Fresh ingredients that play so nicely together.  I made this dish for the sole purpose of portioning out lunches for the week.  However I’m certain it will become another favorite weeknight meal.

I’ve shared several Turkey Tenderloin recipes and each time I’ve used Jennie-O All-Natural Turkey Tenderloins.  They are always delicious, juicy, and naturally low in calories and fat.

Butternut Squash, Apple & Sage Stuffed Turkey Tenderloins are the perfect balance of savory and sweet.  Mostly savory, with a nice apple sweet tartness.  I made this dish on Sunday, shared it with my Healthy Choices buddy on Monday and Wednesday for lunch.  It was just as moist and flavorful then as it was straight from the oven.
