The Simply Luxurious Life®: Kicked Up A Notch

Kicked Up A Notch

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:
P – pancetta
A – arugula
M – mozzarella
T - (sticking with what works) tomato

1. 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.

2. Toast delicious whole wheat bread until crispy and crusty (but not burnt).

3. Spread a bit of mayonnaise (and mustard if you like) over each slice.

4. 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!

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 totally adds some extra flavor!!
I need to try it now with some arugula!!

That BLT looks devine! I'm going to have to try this. We've been doing home-made paninis with bacon and avacado and tomato, but this blt looks like it will also satisfy our food fancies = )
