A sandwich to try

I haven't tried this yet but intend to over the weekend - I got it from the Channel 4 website - it sounds great:

Makes 2
Ready in 20 minutes

* 4 slices white bread, freshly cut from a round country loaf
* 4 tbsp good-quality fresh pesto
* 150g Taleggio cheese, cut into slices
* 50g SunBlush tomatoes, drained and roughly chopped
* Good handful wild rocket
* 4 slices Parma ham or pancetta
* 2 medium eggs, beaten
* 1 tbsp olive oil

Method: How to make the ultimate summer sarnie

1. Spread 2 slices of the bread on 1 side with the pesto. Top with the Taleggio cheese and scatter with the SunBlush tomatoes, followed by the wild rocket. Sandwich together with the remaining bread slices and squash down slightly. Wrap 2 slices of Parma ham or pancetta around each sandwich.

2. Soak each sandwich in the beaten egg for 3 minutes each side.

3. Heat the olive oil in a large, non-stick frying pan over a medium-low heat, add the sandwiches to the hot pan and fry for 6 minutes, turning halfway, until the Taleggio is melting and the Parma ham or pancetta is golden. Transfer to kitchen paper to drain.

4. Cut each sandwich in half and serve with plenty of napkins.

It sounds mouthwatering and even if I don't get a chance to try it out this weekend wanted to keep a note of it and share it.
