1-1/2 Pounds Beef Tenderloin, Trimmed
4 Tablespoons Olive Oil
2 Tablespoons Minced Garlic
Fresh Sage Leaves

To Prepare Crustini - Slice the baguette into 1/2" rounds, brush with olive oil, top with minced garlic and toast.
To Prepare Savory Cream - Whip the cream in a well chilled medium bowl to soft peak. Add the sage, salt and pepper and whisk until the peaks are firm. Refrigerate until assembly of tidbits.
To Prepare Tenderloin - Rub the beef with garlic salt and pepper. Grill the tenderloin until medium rar. Let the meat rest for 15 minutes (this will keep the juices in when you slice). Then slice the tenderloin thinly into about 30 pieces.
To Assemble the Tidbits - Spoon a dollop fo the savory cream on each crustini piece, then lay a slice of the tenderloin on the cream and top off with a dollop of the same savory cream. Garnish each with a fresh sage leaf.
