Turkey Tenderloins in a cream sauce!

Living in Portugal, one of the most common meats used is Turkey, from tenderloins, to steaks, breasts and thighs. I love using Turkey, it's healthy, it's tasty and it's cheaper than chicken and beef. So for dinner tonight I made a delicious Turkey Breast Tenderloin, smothered in cream, mushrooms and bacon. YUM!


Turkey Tenderloins
4 Turkey Breast tenderloins, sliced thinly 
1 small onion, chopped finely
olive oil 
salt and pepper 
lemon juice 
garlic powder 
heavy cream 
Half a package of bacon, sliced 
1 small can of mushrooms, sliced 
Cut the tenderloin breasts into strips, season with salt and pepper, garlic powder and lemon juice.  In a skillet, add a little bit of olive oil, add the turkey and cook over medium heat until cooked through and starting to brown.  

Remove from pan and add the onions, mushrooms and bacon. Cook until onions are tender and bacon is starting to crisp.  
Add the heavy cream, about 2 cups.  Return the turkey to the skillet and let it all simmer together for about 5 minutes or until warm. 
Serve with mashed potatoes.
