Prosciuttons

Carl invented these after I complained of there not being enough crispy foods in our mostly-paleo life.

Ingredients

Some prosciutto, deli-sliced. We like buying the giant box at BJs

A cast-iron skillet

Wait until the paper starts peeling up by itself, approximately 30-45 seconds.

Peel the paper off

Walk away.

No, really, leave it alone.

Tap your feet. Stare at it. Resist the urge.

When it is finally super brown and completely crispy, then you may transfer it to a paper towel to dry and cool. (Note Carl cooks them on both sides, Nicole is not so patient)

Nom.

We like crumbling them up and serving them in soup or on salad, but you can also eat them as a (very) salty snack.
