This has fantastic flavor. What a treat. Ate for dinner, and packed the other two sandwiches for our lunch the next day. did put the tomatos in a separate container sliced. I find that if you put them on in the evening, the bread gets way too soggy.
Mr. Stripey Tomato, Arugula, and Pancetta Sandwiches
These sandwiches are a new interpretation of the classic BLT. Pancetta is Italian cured bacon; substitute domestic cured bacon, if necessary. You can prepare the mayonnaise mixture and cook the pancetta up to one day ahead.
