1) In a large bowl Mix breading ingredients together.

2) In a separate bowl, mix egg (without shell) to create egg wash

3) Cover Sliced Turkey Tenderloin with egg wash then cover with breading .much like you would for doing fish (or any other breading for that matter)

4) Place cheese into long slit that you made in the tenderloin (see photo below) Then wrap with bacon to hold it together.
