The noble BLT, known as one of America's most popular sandwiches, is getting an Italian makeover. Served on firm ciabatta, this "pancetta, lattuga, e pomodoro" sandwich gets its Italian twist by a nice dollop of pesto mayo (or a healthy schmear, we'll never tell on you!) A side of cottage fries makes this a new multicultural classic for your sandwich rotation.

Recipe Steps

You Will Need

  • Olive Oil
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Cooking Spray
  • 2 Baking Sheets
  • 1 Small Bowl

Before You Cook

  • Step 1 - Prepare the Ingredients

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Slice Roma tomatoes into 12 ¼" rounds. Halve ciabatta rolls. Slice potatoes into ¼" rounds. On a separate cutting board, halve bacon strips across width.

  • Step 2 - Roast the Potatoes

    Roast the Potatoes

    Place potatoes on prepared baking sheet. Drizzle with 1 Tbsp. olive oil, and season with ½ tsp. salt and ¼ tsp. pepper. Toss to combine and arrange in a single layer. Place on lower oven rack and roast until browned and fork tender, 30-35 minutes. While potatoes roast, cook bacon and toast ciabatta.

  • Step 3 - Cook the Bacon and Toast Ciabatta

    Cook the Bacon and Toast Ciabatta

    Line a plate with a paper towel. Place bacon on second prepared baking sheet and place on upper oven rack. Cook until crispy, 10-12 minutes. Transfer to towel-lined plate. Replace foil on baking sheet and add ciabatta halves cut-side down. Toast in oven until warmed through and lightly toasted, 5 minutes. Remove ciabatta from oven and top with mozzarella slice. Set aside. While ciabatta toasts, make pesto mayo.

  • Step 4 - Make the Pesto Mayo

    Make the Pesto Mayo

    In a small bowl, stir together mayonnaise and pesto. Taste and season with a pinch of salt and pepper if desired.

  • Step 5 - Build the Sandwiches

    Build the Sandwiches

    Divide cooked bacon between bottom slices of ciabatta. Top bacon with tomatoes and arugula. Spread half the pesto mayo on ciabatta tops (reserve remaining for potatoes) and place atop sandwiches.

  • Step 6 - Plate the Dish

    Plate the Dish

    Slice sandwiches and serve on a plate alongside potatoes. Serve remaining pesto mayo on side for dipping potatoes.
