Pancetta, Tomato and Ricotta Open Faced Breakfast Sandwich

Pancetta, Tomato and Ricotta Open Faced Breakfast Sandwich

Sometimes life is just too busy to make a full breakfast. And sometimes life is just too busy to make a full dinner. Thankfully, there are delicious options like this one for a Pancetta, Tomato and Ricotta Open Faced Breakfast Sandwich (also known as a toastie) that are quick, delicious and can be made for either.

I imagine that Evan and I will be eating quick and easy dinners like this a lot on our RV trip. Who says that you have to have a big involved dinner anyway? I enjoy eating quick, delicious and fresh meals for dinner. Groceries are less, the scale stays put and I don’t have to spend hours in the kitchen. I call that a win/win/win!

While it can be made at any time, make sure that you take advantage of the delicious, fresh tomatoes avaiable now as summer comes to an end. There are few things that are better in life than fresh, summer tomatoes.

Okay….let’s make a Pancetta, Tomato and Ricotta Breakfast Open Faced Sandwich! (Scroll down for the full, printable recipe.)

First, gather your ingredients:

1 piece                             whole wheat, seedy, rustic bread
2 slices                             pancetta, fried crispy, crumbled (can use bacon if you prefer)
3 slices                             tomato, sliced
¼ c                                    ricotta (can also use cottage cheese if preferred)
dash                                 Italian seasoning, dried
as desired                        salt and pepper
garnish                             fresh basil

Next, toast your bread. You want it crispy enough to be a good base for  the ricotta (which is a bit wet). Mix together the salt, pepper, Italian seasoning and the ricotta cheese. Spread on top of the toast.

Looks so yummy and colourful. Going to give this a try for sure. When I'm eating open face sandwiches, the toppings usually end up all over my plate but that's okay too. I see so many possible variations on this too, very versatile recipe. Awesome.
