  • Of Food And Love: Cheesy Pancetta Panini With Rosemary

    ::Don’t forget to enter the Handmade Goodness giveaway!::

    I haven’t posted anything yummy in while.  Shameful.

    Well, now, you might be wishing I had waited a little longer, especially if you just finished your weekly grocery shopping.

    Every Sunday afternoon is a foodie battle for me.  I have to quickly feed four hungry mouths in time for Cylas to leave for his Jujitsu and then immediately start the fixin’s for dinner so we can eat in time before our second go ’round of church.
    truth be told, not much of a Sunday afternoon fan — except for my delicious naps

    So, late Saturday night I was browsing through some of my all time favorite recipe sites and nearly drooled, mind you this is very late, like 11pm late, and I have no reason to be drooling at such an hour, when I saw it.

    First of all, I have never cooked pancetta, or even eaten it, for that matter.

    Take your cute, thinly sliced pancetta

    But I wasn’t really worried because it looked a lot like bacon and I love. love. bacon.  Don’t judge.

    And cook them at 400 degrees until they are toasty, like so.

    Remove the pancetta, cool, and crumble.  Then place some gourmet bread rolls, such as Artisan and stick them, whole, into the oven to warm and become soft.

    But then there was the question of the Swiss cheese.  I am. NOT. a fan of Swiss cheese, never have been, but a couple of times I’ve eaten a sandwich where the cheese was the in background and not the main star and I was able to stomach it, so I figured I’d give this one a chance.  I found some *light* Swiss cheese and felt safe with my choice.  (who knew there was such a thing?)

    Once the bread is warmed, slice it open and place the cheese on…then stick it back in and wait for the cheese to melt. Sprinkle, merrily, with Rosemary. feast

    I was not disappointed.  I mean, who could be when you’re munching on something that looks like this and tastes a million times better than it looks?
    Sunday lunch?  Dominated!

    Cheesy Rosemary Sandwiches
    What you’ll need:
    6 slices pancetta
    6 Pepperidge Farm Stone Baked French Artisan Rolls
    7 ounces Kerrygold Swiss cheese – sliced or grated
    1 teaspoon minced fresh rosemary

    What to do:
    1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

    2. Place pancetta {or bacon} slices onto a rimmed baking sheet and bake until crispy. Transfer to a plate lined with kitchen towels to absorb excess grease. When cool, crumble. Set aside.

    3.  At the same time the bacon is in the oven, place rolls onto a separate baking sheet and bake for 10 minutes. Cut in half vertically.

    4. Top bottom of rolls with a few slices of cheese, sprinkle with bacon and rosemary. Bake for approximately 5 minutes OR until cheese is melted and bubbly.
