  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Place a wire rack inside a baking sheet to catch grease.

  • Place 3 bacon halves side by side on the wire rack. Weave another 3 to 4 bacon halves over and under those halves to form a square lattice. Repeat with remaining bacon halves.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until browned and crispy, 15 to 20 minutes. Lift bacon lattices off the pan with a spatula onto paper towels.

  • Spread basil garlic aioli on each ciabatta roll; layer mozzarella slices, tomato, and bacon lattices on top.

Cook's Note:

If you don't have a baking rack, line the baking sheet with aluminum foil and spray with cooking spray.
