The King’s Crowned Filets

Company will feel like royalty when you present this tender filet with a lightly breaded horseradish topping. Best of all, it grills in just 15 minutes. —Tonya Burkhard, Davis, Illinois

    I loved this! I served it with grilled asparagus, rolls, and That Good Salad (recipe on TOH) and it was a fantastic meal that I'm sure will become a go-to for company. I did use 5 oz beef tenderloin filets wrapped with bacon, since it was what I had.
