Hot Pastrami Sandwiches!

So, the other day I was craving a hot pastrami sandwich. I really wanted it to be like one you would buy at "The Italian Place" and found a pretty close recipe that is really easy and so good!

- 1 onion, chopped up (optional)
- 1 lb Beef Pastrami (which they have at IGA right now)
- Deli Rolls (they sell some good ones at IGA)
- 4-8 slices of Swiss cheese
- Mustard
- Mayo
- Butter
- Water (just a little)
- Dill Pickle (optional)

Thinly slice or chop the onions into small pieces and cook in a small amount of butter over medium heat until they are nicely browned. Remove from the skillet and set aside. Cut the roll in half & spread the butter evenly over the inside of the deli rolls.

In another skillet, heat the pastrami with a little bit of water until it is steaming hot. Place one of the deli rolls, buttered side down in the skillet you used to cook the onions. Lightly toast the inside of the rolls and if you want, flip to the other side and toast a little. Remove from the pan and put mayo and mustard & top with the chopped onions, on the roll. Then, add the hot pastrami and Swiss cheese! Presto! You are done! Enjoy and imagine you are at "The Italian Place!"
(Serve with a sliced dill pickle and your favorite deli style salad.)
