Make Prosciutto Crisps in Your Waffle Maker
Prosciutto crisps, which I fondly name “pork chips,” can perform as a elaborate snack, highfalutin’ bacon bit, or—within the case of 1 cocktail I had one time—sudden drink garnish. Normally the paper-thin slices require a minimum of 15 minutes in an oven to get them good and crisp, however you possibly can velocity up the method considerably in case you have a waffle maker.
Preheat your (nonstick or calmly greased) waffle maker as sizzling as it’ll go, then press the prosciutto between the 2 sizzling plates for 3 or 4 minutes, checking each minute or so to make sure it’s not burning. (Relying on the scale of your waffle maker, you’ll have to chop the prosciutto to suit.) As soon as the fats has rendered and the meat has darkened to a pleasant, golden hue, take away the crisp(s) with tongs or chopstick, let it drain on a paper towel for a minute, then use it simply as you would crispy bacon. Eat instantly, crumble onto a salad or right into a bowl of soup, or slide right into a sandwich. I’ve but to have a prosciutto crisp make it into something however my mouth, however I’m weak-willed with regards to crispy pork.
