Food Safety

Before you start, wash all surfaces and your hands with soap and warm water, and remember to wash your hands, utensils and cutting boards after they touch raw meat or eggs. Avoid cross-contamination by using a different cutting board for your meat and other ingredients. Make sure you’re cooking to safe temperatures and chilling any leftovers within two hours.

Helpful Tip

A “fix it and forget it” kind of recipe that is good for casual entertaining or potlucks. Substitute any kind of chopped nuts or grated cheese for the almonds and mozzarella. Walnuts and Swiss cheese also work well. Serve with pita wedges, crackers, sliced baguette and/or an array of sliced fruits like pears and apples.
