Couldnt get any pancetta so came home with parma ham, can I fry it in the same way?

It'll cook, but be REALLY careful it doesn't burn as it's so thin.

What's the recipe?

SybilFaulty Mon 16-Feb-09 16:56:23

yes but will need seconds only

Yes but it's so thin it will burn quickly.

Was it pancetta cubes you needed?

would be a waste imho - can you get bacon instead? can put p ham on pizza, or wrap around chicken or salmon to roast, but to use in place of pancetta in the kind of recipes it tends to go in, no , i wouldn't.

Parma ham is so expensive it seems a bit of a waste - if you happen to have bacon use that instead.

Sorry, cross posted with SybilFaulty

It's less salt in taste so you may need to adjust that.

What are you making?

its only to go in chopped in pasta. I dont like the pancetta cubes, too fatty so I always buy slices.

So will it be ok or not? I have no time to go back to shop to change for bacon

Tip for next time - you can use streaky bacon in place of pancetta.

Another one for next time - if you have a local Tesco they do brilliant packs of bacon chunks for £1. I use in pasta sauces or quiche. Pre-fry with the onions etc then all the fat will go.
