Crisp, Crunchy Prosciutto: Better than Bacon

Roast sliced prosciutto for a crispy treat


Two questions for a mom/food blogger/personal chef/recipe writer/household planner having one of those weeks that are making her very tired:

Question: What is the one thing you toss into your cart each and every time you shop at Costco.
A
nswer: One pound packages of sliced prosciutto.

Question: And why is that?
Answer: Because when there’s nothing much in the house to cook, we can always munch on oven-roasted prosciutto. This stuff might be better than bacon-flavored potato chips.

Question: Just one more question – how do you make it?
Answer: Just have a look at the easy recipe below. I’m going to have a little nap now.

Crisp Oven-Roasted Prosciutto

12 slices prosciutto
Salt
Freshly ground black pepper
Olive oil

Arrange the prosciutto on a large rimmed baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with a little salt and pepper. Roast in a 400-degree oven 12-15 minutes (keep you eye on it – it browns quickly) until crisp. Cool.

Crumble over pasta, eggs, mashed potatoes or sandwiches. Or just eat it plain, right out of a bowl.
