I always order this sandwich when I go to a deli in the 'burbs. Luckily, I don't go there too often because I doubt if it is diet friendly. ;)

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 slices rye bread
  • 4 -6 slices kosher salami, thinly sliced
  • 2 slices American cheese (cheddar may also be used)
  • 1 teaspoon butter

Directions

  1. Fry salami until fat has rendered (I like mine a little burnt around the edges). Note: it's a good idea to make a cut in the salami slices so that they'll lay flatter after they're cooked.
  2. Drain salami on paper towels.
  3. Spread butter on one side of each slice of bread.
  4. Place one slice of cheese on unbuttered side of bread.
  5. Top with fried salami slices.
  6. Top salami with remaining slice of cheese.
  7. Place unbutter side of remaining slice of bread on top of the cheese.
  8. Heat frying pan to low/medium heat.
  9. Place sandwich in pan and cook until golden brown.
  10. Flip sandwich and repeat with the other side.
