Turkey Bacon Wrapped Dates with Goat Cheese
This is another recipe inspired by the Chicago restaurant Cafe Ba Ba Reba. I have this theory that when you combine bacon and cheese you really can't go wrong. I made this healthier by using turkey bacon, and the result was just as tasty.
This is the last recipe involving Turkey Bacon - sorry it look me a while to use it all up! It is really good, and low fat.
Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time 40 minutes
You will need:
1 package Turkey Bacon
4 ounces Goat Cheese
2 cups Pitted Dates
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Then individually slice open the dates and fill them with goat cheese.
Slice the strips of turkey bacon in half. Then wrap the bacon around the date. Secure with a toothpick.
Repeat until all of the dates and stuffed with goat cheese and wrapped in bacon. Then place on a baking sheet and cook for 40 minutes. The bacon should be nice and crisp.
Remove from the oven. Place the bacon wrapped dates on a paper towel to absorb any grease before serving.
