Turkey Tenderloin with Creamed Spinach and Mashed Sweet Potatoes
Turkey Tenderloin with Creamed Spinach and Mashed Sweet Potatoes- This recipe a lighter version of steak house classics. Instead of using beef filet mignon, I use turkey tenderloin for a steak and pair it with a delicious sauce made with shallots and demi glace. I pair the tenderloin with cream cheese creamed spinach and mashed sweet potatoes.

- 4 medium sweet potatoes pierced
- 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
- 2 teaspoons kosher salt

Pop sweet potatoes in the oven on the grate for 1 hour until tender. Remove from oven and cut a small slit down the middle to release the steam. Grab a towel and take sweet potatoes and scoop out the flesh into a bowl, add butter, salt and thyme. Mix together until butter is melted, taste and adjust seasoning.
In a bowl mix salt, pepper and savory seasoning, evenly season tenderloin on both sides. Sit out for 15 minutes at room temperature.
While turkey rest for 15 minutes, make the creamed spinach heat a pot over medium heat add oil and spinach cook until spinach is wilted, then add remaining ingredients and bring to a boil. Transfer to a serving bowl.
