1Partially cook bacon slices in microwave for 1-1/2 minutes on full power. This renders the fat and begins to shrivel the bacon. Cool.
2Blend cream cheese, ricotta, tabasco and sage in a food processor until smooth and well blended. Using a small spoon or butter knife stuff cheese mixture into the prune openings. Round cheese on top of the prune opening.
3Cut bacon slices in half lengthwise and wrap each slice around a cheese stuffed prune.
4Refrigerate until ready to serve. Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Place prunes on a baking sheet and bake for approx. 7 minutes or until bacon is crisp. Allow to cool for at least 5 minutes before serving (they will be extremely hot directly from the oven and can burn tongues!)
5Prunes can be prepared a couple of days in advance and refrigerated. Delicious!!
