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?

    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.
