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 :)
