Turkey Bacon can be good sometimes. This time it was not. I had asked for suggestions for a snack to bring to a gathering earlier in the week. Of the suggestions, a couple were things I have made and posted in the past. I decided to tweak my Bacon Wrapped Blue Cheese Stuffed Dates some and it didn't have the results I had hoped for.
I went with a change to the stuffing and the wrap. One was a success and the other was just suck.
Turkey Bacon Wrapped Blueberry Feta Stuffed Dates
I diced blueberries and feta and stuffed the dates with the mixture. This was a good idea. It was a great mixture. The failure here was my choice to up the health factor and use Turkey Bacon instead of real bacon. Like I said above, Turkey Bacon can be good. here it was not. The result was SO bland. If you want to try to do this, stick with the good stuff. (I even used some of my Bacon Salt [a gift bought in Chelsea Market] to make them edible but I decided to not bring anything to my friends' and took a six-pack of beer instead.)
I did get the approval from some friends the next day at my place (I didn't throw them out as I HATE wasting food) and perhaps it was because the Bacon Salt sunk in over night. Don't bank on it. Skip this route and use
