Hot Pastrami Sandwich Recipe

Photo Courtesy:


  • 1 Loaf of rye bread
  • 1 to 1.5 Pounds deli slices corned beef or pastrami
  • 1 Stick melted butter
  • 1 Chopped yellow onion
  • French’s yellow mustard
  • Horseradish sauce from deli
  • 1- 1.5 Pounds baby swiss cheese, sliced
  • 1 Can sauerkraut

How to prepare Hot Pastrami Sandwiches:

  1. Take your loaf apart in sandwich pairs and lay them out.
  2. In a skillet melt the butter and toss the onions until clear. Add about 3 tablespoons of mustard.
  3. Load both pieces of bread with cheese and corned beef or pastrami.
  4. On one piece, spread the onion mixture with the horseradish sauce, and finally layer on sauerkraut and “close” the sandwich together. Layering the sandwich with the wet ingredients in the middle will keep it from getting soggy.
  5. Optional: Lightly brush a little melted butter over the tops of the sandwiches for added crispiness.
  6. Place sandwiches in baking pans and bake at 400 degrees until cheese melts and bread begins to turn golden brown.
  7. Serve with homemade baked potato soup and enjoy.
