Ingredients
  1. 12 thin slices pancetta
  2. Sun-Dried Tomato Aïoli (recipe follows)
  3. 24 thin French baguette slices
  4. 24 (1-inch-square) pieces Gouda cheese
  5. 24 (1-inch-square) pieces thinly sliced smoked turkey, rolled into cylinders
  6. ½ pint grape tomatoes, quartered
  7. ½ teaspoon salt
  8. ½ teaspoon ground black pepper
  9. Garnish: microgreens
Instructions
  1. Unwind each slice of pancetta into a long strip. Cut each strip in half, and tightly roll each strip into a rosette. In a large skillet over medium heat, cook the pancetta rosettes until crisp, turning often to brown each side. Transfer to a plate lined with paper towels to drain, and set aside.
  2. Preheat oven to 400˚. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, and set aside.
  3. Spread about 1 teaspoon Sun-Dried Tomato Aïoli on each baguette slice, then top each with a piece of cheese. Place the baguette slices on the prepared baking sheet, and bake for 8 to 10 minutes, or until the cheese is melted.
  4. Top each sandwich with a piece of turkey, a prepared pancetta rosette, and a piece of tomato; sprinkle evenly with salt and pepper. Garnish with microgreens, if desired. Serve immediately.
