Crispy Feta Toasts with Pancetta
Yields: 12 servings
  • 1 (10-inch) loaf round fresh sourdough bread, cut into ½-inch-thick slices
  • Olive oil, for brushing
  • 12 thin round slices pancetta
  • 1 (8-ounce) package feta cheese, sliced ¼ inch thick
  • 1 bunch fresh basil, chiffonade
  • Balsamic vinegar glaze, for drizzling
  • Garnish: basil leaves
  1. Preheat grill to medium-high heat (350° to 400°).
  2. Brush bread with oil. Grill bread until lightly toasted, about 2 minutes per side. Remove, and let cool.* Cut each slice in half diagonally.
  3. Preheat oven to 450°. Line a baking sheet with foil.
  4. Arrange pancetta slices in a single layer on prepared pan. Bake until golden, about 8 minutes. Transfer to a paper towel-lined wire rack, and let stand until crisp.
