Prep Time:5 minInactive Prep Time: — Cook Time:12 min
4 to 6 servings
Vegetable cooking spray
12 very thin slices pancetta
3 hard boiled eggs, peeled and coarsely chopped
4 ounces crumbled Gorgonzola
1 lemon, zested
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup chopped fresh chives
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, optional
6 (1/2-inch thick) slices whole-wheat bread
Place an oven rack in the center of the oven. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray. Lay the pancetta in a single layer on the prepared baking sheet and bake for 10 to 12 minutes until crispy and brown. Drain on paper towels.
In a medium bowl, combine the eggs, Gorgonzola, lemon zest, mayonnaise, and chives. Season with salt and pepper, to taste, if using. Spread the mixture evenly over 3 slices of the bread. Crumble the pancetta and sprinkle over the egg mixture. Place the remaining bread slices on top.
Cut the sandwiches in half and arrange on a serving platter.
