These are great for a casual gathering of friends and family, to take to a potluck supper at church. Took a bunch to church, gone in just minutes. Hope you enjoy them as much as they did.

Wow... the pancetta is the star of this recipe. Pancetta is a great twist on traditional bacon (which would be a good substitute and just as delicious). If you love a BLT, then you'll devour these! And who doesn't love to eat food from a stick? The Test Kitchen

Ingredients

Add to Grocery List

  • 1 Tbsp
    olive oil, extra virgin
  • 1 lb
    (1/2-inch-thick) sliced pancetta, cut into 1-inch squares
  • 1 pt
    cherry tomatoes, halved

How to Make BLT Skewers

Step-by-Step

  1. In a large skillet, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add pancetta. Cook, stirring frequently, for 8 to 10 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove pancetta and drain on paper towels until cool.
  2. On 4-inch skewers, thread 2 pieces pancetta, 1 cherry tomato half, 1 basil leaf, and 1 bread cube.
  3. Here's a great tip for halving the tomatoes. Take two round lids put some tomatoes on one and cover with the other. With a sharp knife cut between the lids. Repeat until all are halved.
  4. Serve with my ranch dressing, makes a great dip.
