A delicious twist on a classic pastrami sandwich. Slightly sweet and very savory. My ideal Sunday lunch.


4 slices good sandwich bread
1/4 pound pastrami, sliced thin
2 tablespoons fig jam
2 tablespoons dijon mustard
2-3 ounces sharp cheddar cheese
1 apple, sliced thin
Fresh chives, garnish


1) Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with foil.

2) Place four 1/2-inch pieces of good bread on the baking sheet and smear with fig jam.

3) Place a few slices of thin pastrami on each sandwich. Then top with a light smear of mustard.

4) Top with grated cheese and a few thin apple slices.

5) Bake sandwiches for about five minutes until bread is toasted and cheese is melted.

6) Top with fresh chives and chow down immediately!
