4 servings (serving size: 1 sandwich)

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.

How to Make It

Step 1

Combine first 4 ingredients in a bowl, stirring well.

Step 2

Preheat oven to 400°. Arrange pancetta in a single layer on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray. Bake at 400° for 8 minutes or until crisp. Drain on paper towels.

Step 3

Spread mayonnaise mixture evenly over bread slices. Top each of 4 bread slices with 2 pancetta slices, 4 tomato slices, and 1/4 cup arugula. Top sandwiches with remaining 4 bread slices.

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.
