Fruit Cocktail Bread Pudding.
I made this recipe a few days ago and it is yummy. We bought the turkey tenderloins at Sam's. I marinated them, but I did not discard the marinate ,it is delicious. I did not use the grill,I baked the tenderloins in the oven,in the marinade covered , turning them once,until the thermometer reached 160 degrees.
These moist grilled tenderloins marinate overnight in a savory teriyaki and soy sauce mixture. "I had used this recipe for years on pork tenderloin and decided to give turkey a try," says Linda Gregg of Spartanburg, South Carolina.
