- Cut into uniform ¼ to ½ inch dices. Place in a heavy skillet over moderate heat. Stir occasionally with a long handled fork.
- When fat is all rendered and spirguciai are uniformly crisp and light brown, pour off melted fat through a strainer.
- Spirguciai may also be fried in a moderate oven. Stir occasionally and watch carefully, when nearly done to avoid scorching.
