Cost in recipe:
In this recipe one strip of prosciutto equals 1/3 pound of cooked crumbled bacon.
Bacon cost $2.50/lbs = $.72
Prosciutto cost 1 strip = $1.00
(Package can cost $7 or your deli can slice it)
But there is no precooking for prosciutto and much less fat and more flavor. To me it is worth the extra $.28. Prosciutto recipes are plentiful on the internet. You will be surprised how they are used with fruits and vegetables. They are quick, easy and extremely tasty. Prosciutto fills the need for a meaty taste with very little meat.
