Re: Bacon bits?

Any Migros or Coop. Usually come in a two pack and can be found in the cooler cabinet in amongst the normal sliced bacon and bacon joints. (Costs around CHF 4.50).

Re: Bacon bits?

As Speckwürfeli available in any Migros, Coop or Lidl (I think Aldi as well). But uncooked - you have to fry them up yourself. Basically more like panchetta than bacon but close enough for most purposes.

I use pancetta bits to cook too - and add them into potato salads and pesto pastas. Easily available in the Migros and Coop sections of the hams and Swiss bacon.

Turn the heat up and fry them till crispy and crunchy - really hardly taste the difference

If you mean like in the States:




You wont (at least not Coop or Migros).

I just make them myself, slice up some bacon and cook till well done. Drain, place in paper towels to dry and cool. Great on salads or bake potatoes (way tastier than BacOs).

Actually, these are exactly what I had in mind, but come to think of it, making them myself with these Speckwürfel or even with bacon as you explained is much better .

Re: Bacon bits?

Yeah, any grocery store carries them.

A tip: cook bacon in the microwave or under your broiler. Both keep your kitchen from getting greasy. Broiling is also good because you can make larger amounts.

Re: Bacon bits?

Or just get your kitchen dirty and clean it afterwards. It's a kitchen, not a decorative item
