Blackstone Pastrami Melt

Jump to Recipe

Who doesn’t love a good ol’ grilled cheese sandwich? But it doesn’t always fly as a full on dinner – so why not jazz it up a bit, maybe make it a little more grown up and add in some delicious flavors like pastrami and everything seasoning. This Blackstone Pastrami Melt is the perfect quick dinner (or lunch) is a classic comfort food that works great any day of the week.

I do not think I will ever make a grilled cheese again without adding everything seasoning to the butter on the outside. The flavor is amazing. You get that extra bit of toasting on the seeds and it just added that extra dimension – making the sandwich just that much better. So what is in everything seasoning? It most commonly has sesame seeds, poppy seeds, dried garlic, dried onion and coarse salt. Some brands also add in some dried parsley. You can make your own blend or find one of the many blends available. My favorite is this one by Flavor Mate. It has a good ratio of the different ingredients.

As I have said before, I am not sponsored by Blackstone Products in anyway – I am just a huge fan of my blackstone griddle. It was a surprise from my husband and kids for my birthday and I have been loving it ever since. The thing I love the most about it, is being able to make everyone’s meal ready at the same time and not having to do it in batches. Having said that – if you do not have a big flat top griddle, you can use a countertop griddle or a pan on the stove.

I served up these sandwiches with our favorite Salt & Black pepper kettle chips and a simple side salad. It was so super yum and a great summer time meal. I have made these sandwiches a few times since for quick lunches.

I am a lot of things – wife, mother, daughter, sister, niece, friend, business owner, volunteer, and a home chef. I have lived in the Pacific Northwest for most of my adult life and plan to stay forever – while traveling a lot. I am currently running a General Contracting business with my husband out of our home. Between us we have 6 kids in our blended family, 4 of which live with us full-time. We are a highly active family during the week – sports, bands, dance classes – as well as on the weekend – camping, hiking, car shows, and concerts. We like to go go go, but when it comes to dinnertime, we mostly like to dine-in! I love to create things with my hands and have probably tried almost every craft out there at least once or twice. Cooking is a huge part of my life. No matter what anyone says – you can taste the difference in the food if it was made with love. Some of the simplest meals can be elevated so much when they are cooked with care. Pouring love into the meals I create brings a feeling of fulfillment and satisfaction, not only to me, but to the people I care about.
