15 days of sandwiches: Day 1 – Peach pancetta and arugula sandwich

School is starting up shortly for most of you. Whether you are a teacher or a student (or just packing a lunch for work), figuring out lunches everyday can seem kind of daunting. We all want to eat something for lunch that is tasty, but we don’t want to spend more than a few minutes putting it together. I have decided to spend the next 15 days coming up with fast, easy, healthy and delicious sandwiches that you all can make in no time!

This first sandwich is so incredibly easy to prepare, but tastes like something so gourmet you would think it was from an amazing cafe in some swanky city. It has everything I love in a sandwich – crunchy bread, melty cheese, something sweet, and of course bacon (pancetta in this case)!


2 slices pancetta
1 peach, sliced
1 slice light havartie cheese
Rustic crusty whole grain baguette

Heat a skillet over medium high heat and add pancetta to pan. Brown on both sides – each side about 5 minutes. Once you flip the pancetta, add peach slices to skillet and brown on both sides. 2 minutes per side. Remove both peaches and pancetta from skillet.

Slice baguette in half and add a layer of cheese. Place pancetta and peaches on top of cheese and top with arugula.
