A Simply Luxuriuos BLT: Kicked Up a Notch

Jun 11, 2010

This week I have been experimenting with traditional recipes that I love but needed to change them up somehow.
The BLT became the focus of my makeover madness.
PAMT – probably not the most creatively organized acronym, but let me explain.  (Okay, don’t worry, I’m still going to call it a BLT, but I was trying to be a bit of a tease.  I know, it didn’t work that well.)
Let’s get to the recipe:
 

A Simply Luxurious BLT

Simply LuxuriousSimply Luxurious
Prep Time 15 mins
Cook Time 10 mins
Total Time 25 mins
Servings 2 sandwiches

Ingredients
  

  • 4 slices pancetta
  • 1 cup Arugula
  • 2-3 slices Mozzarella
  • 2-4 slices Fresh Tomatoes
  • 4 slices your favorite crusty artisan bread

Instructions
 

  • Cook pancetta in a skillet over medium heat until done on both sides. They won’t appear crispy upon taking them out of the skillet, but let them sit for about 2 minutes, and they will be perfect – dainty little crunchy nibbles.
  • Toast delicious whole wheat bread until crispy and crusty (but not burnt).
  • Spread a bit of mayonnaise (and mustard if you like) over each slice.
  • Arrange a layer of arugula leaves, slices of mozzarella (not melted, but you might want to try that version – could be delicious!) pancetta and slices of tomato. Voila!
It’s nothing fancy, but it is surprisingly tasty to fill you up during a lunch time break if you’re in the kitchen.  Add some cantaloupe or some other fruit and you’ve got yourself a lovely little meal.
Out of curiosity, how have you mixed up the BLT to take it up a notch?  Have a wonderful Friday!

  1. love it!! Lately we are indulging in Saturday Panini’s and I add to the brad after the mayonnaise a mix of garlic + basil + a tiny olive oil (in the food processor!)…and voila…it totally adds some extra flavor!!
    I need to try it now with some arugula!!
