This can be prepared in less than 30 minutes! It also looks good. Recipe found on www.cdkitchen.com. This is very much like a recipe I saw Bobby Flay prepare, will have to look for it. (Updated 02/2007)

This beautiful sandwich deserves a picture! I used some bread and cheese I had on hand (not exactly what the recipe calls for), but it was delicious and quick nevertheless. I love the flavors of arugula and pancetta together, and it's even better with egg and cheese. Gotta go easy on the pancetta if it's a salty one, though. Thanks for sharing such a delightful breakfast :)
