Ceasar Salad Club Sandwich

Noble Pig post, once again. This was posted as a guarantee as the greatest sandwich ever, and I could eat Caesar Salad everyday for years, so making this was a no-brainer. I am not kidding, this is the BEST SANDWICH EVER EVER! Lucky for you that I'm letting you know, because now you don't have to ever make another sandwich for the rest of your life.

Now I am biased due to my love of Caesar, and that every ingredient on this sandwich by itself probably by the bowlful, but man, was this a good sandwich. I don't think I can ever go to a Subway or Quiznos again, unless they will make me this sandwich.

-Panchetta is a non-smoked bacon, and kinda expensive. If you'd prefer the smokey flavor and a little more cash in your pocket, just stick with the bacon.

- The ingredients marked in the {{ }} are to make a Caesar salad type dressing. If your not very ambitious like me, you'll just go buy some Caesar Salad dressing.

Caesar Salad Club Sandwich
from The Noble Pig

Meat from 2 roasted chicken breasts, sliced
4 ounces pancetta
{{2 garlic cloves, chopped
2 Tablespoons fresh flat-leaf parsley
1-1/2 teaspoons anchovy paste
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1-1/2 Tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
1/2 cup mayonnaise }}
1 large ciabatta bread
2 ounces baby arugula
12 sun-dried tomatoes, packed in oil
2 to 3 ounces Parmesan, shaved

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Place the pancetta on a sheet pan in a single layer. Roast for 15 minutes until crispy. When seven minutes are left add the halved ciabatta bread on another sheet pan and toast it cut side up.

To the bowl of a food processor add garlic, parsley, anchovy paste, Dijon mustard, lemon juice and mayonnaise. Process until smooth. (Refrigerate if not using right away.)

Spread the cut sides of the bread with Caesar dressing. Place half the arugula on the bottom piece of bread and then layer in order: the pancetta, sun-dried tomatoes, sliced roast chicken, Parmesan and the rest of the arugula. Sprinkle with salt and pepper if you like. Place the top slice of ciabatta on top and cut crosswise.

Devour and enjoy :]
