Ingredients

8 slices whole wheat bread
1/4 cup prepared basil pesto
4 thin slices Mozzarella cheese (fresh is best)
1 tomato thinly sliced
4 thin slices Provolone cheese
4 slices pancetts cooked until crispy and drained (Italian bacon but regular will work 1 slice per sandwich cut in half or thirds)
4 thin slices red onion
2 eggs, beaten with 1/3 cup milk and 1/8 tsp white pepper in a shallow plate
3 Tbsp flour
3 Tbsp cornmeal (you can substitute fine dry bread crumbs probably about 1/4 cup but it's bettere)
1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese or mix of Parmesan and Romano


Spread on side of each slice of bread with pesto.


Make sandwiches, enclosing a slice of tomato, pancetta and onion between the slices of cheese one Mozzarella and one Provolone.


Combine flour cornmeal and parmesan cheese. Dip sandwiches into egg mixture, then dip into flour mixture.


Cook on a preheated contact grill until crisp and golden and cheese melts

Notes

Adapted from a recipe found on the Target website. 4 servings but My Hero and I found that 1/2 a sandwich was plenty for us. Great with a little roasted tomato soup and a piece of fruit. An easy Friday or Saturday night recipe.

A dash of local for every season
