I recently went to a friend’s house and she served up these divine BLT style sandwiches!  I swear I could’ve eaten about 30 of them!

It’s a gourmet-style BLT: a perfect blend of flavors!

      • Tangy tomatoes
      • Peppery arugula
      • Smooth creamy avocado
      • Salty pancetta

….the perfect mix!!

Use any size rolls to make this into a great lunch or an slider buns for a perfect appetizer!

  1. I made this recipe from start to finish in less than 15 minutes and it is SO good! I drizzled a little balsamic glaze over mine and rubbed the cut sides of the bread with a clove of garlic.5 stars
