Consider It: Pancetta

Raising a child and running a house are no joke and, to feel good at it, you have to make sure everyone in your house is well fed. For me, cooking does not come naturally {We’re talking struggle to keep the noodles in my mac & cheese from swimming in cheese soup type of unnaturally}. So, now that I have been doing it for a while and am able to make my own imprint on a meal, it’s a real achievement.

A few weeks ago, in an attempt to copy a local restaurants amazing chop salad, I substituted pancetta for the bacon that the recipe called for. It made all the difference in the world. I even got compliments from our company. {Woo Hoo!} So, I thought the same might apply when we decided on baked potatoes for dinner a few nights ago. Instead of bacon {or gross, bacon bits} I chopped some thickly cut pancetta, threw it in a pan and cooked it up. It didn’t disappoint. So, consider it next time a recipe calls for bacon!

Enjoy! Melissa
