Devils on horseback
Soak 12 toothpicks in cold water for 30 minutes to prevent them burning. Wrap a piece of bacon around each prune, and secure with a toothpick.
Preheat the grill until hot. Grill the prunes, turning occasionally, until the bacon is crisp.
Serve hot, sprinkled with the Tabasco sauce.
Inform guests that toothpicks are used, and be cautious when eating to avoid accidental injuries. Consider using decorative toothpicks with larger handles.
Practice safe handling of raw bacon to prevent cross-contamination. Wash hands and surfaces thoroughly after handling.
Be aware of potential allergies to ingredients such as cheese. If serving to guests, inquire about any allergies beforehand.
If using cheese, ensure it is properly stored and at a safe temperature to avoid spoilage.
When removing pits from dates, use a knife carefully to avoid injury.
Be cautious when placing items in and removing them from the oven. Use oven mitts to prevent burns.
Be mindful of the hot temperature of the Devils on Horseback when serving to avoid burns.
Dates can be sticky, and cheese can be soft. Be mindful, especially when serving to children, to prevent choking incidents.
