Fancy BLTs

This post should really be called PATJs, which is short for Pancetta, Argulua, and Tomato Jam sandwiches, but I don’t think you’d be able to understand what I was talking about if that was the title. But all of the ingredients in this sandwich are fancied up version of the classic BLT sandwich served on delicious seeded bread.

The tomato jam and the candied pancetta are definitely on the sweeter side (with a little heat), but the bitterness in the arugula really balances things out nicely. While this may seem like a summer dish, and yes maybe it is, but there is a hint of fall flavor that comes out through the cinnamon and cloves in the tomato jam.
