6-8 thick slices ciabatta or country style bread
A little extra virgin olive oil

Smear the partridges well with butter and wrap each one with 2 slices of pancetta.

Place in a roasting tin and cover with foil.

Cook in the oven for 30 minutes, then remove the foil and roast for a further 10 minutes or until the juices run clear.

Leave to cool slightly.

Drizzle a little oil over the bread and toast or chargrill on one side, then rub the toasted surface with the cut garlic and sprinkle over a little oregano.
