I kept prosciutto and sage in this Italian classic, but instead of veal I added turkey. This Saltimbocca is so divine, you won't believe how quick and easy it is. —Deirdre Cox, Kansas City, Missouri

  1. Place flour in a large shallow bowl. Cut tenderloin horizontally in half; flatten each half with a meat mallet to 1/2-in. thickness. Sprinkle with pepper. Dip in flour to coat both sides; shake off excess.
  2. In a large skillet, heat oil and 1 tablespoon butter over medium heat. Add turkey; cook 3-4 minutes on each side or until no longer pink. Remove from pan; keep warm.
  3. In same pan, heat 1-1/2 teaspoons butter over medium-high heat. Add prosciutto and sage; cook and stir until slightly crisp. Add wine to pan; increase heat to medium-high. Cook until liquid is slightly reduced, stirring to loosen browned bits from pan. Remove from heat; stir in remaining 1-1/2 teaspoons butter. Serve with turkey. Yield: 2 servings.

Very good. Next time I'll sprinkle on a little salt with the pepper.

I left the tenderloins in the pan while making the sauce - using the fresh sage, chicken broth and deli ham sliced in thin strips. Moist and good flavor.

I tried this dish last night from the 2011 Annual Recipe Book and it was delicious. I had leftover new potatoes, which I fried up in the same skillet with the turkey and I also had leftover green and red peppers and green onions. Probably not your typical fare with this dish, but my husband loved it.
