A Low-Cal Update On An American Deli Classic
This hot, pastrami toastie is filled with layer upon layer of pastrami, topped with a layer of pickles and then topped with cheese. A short stay in the sandwich press with leave you with a beautiful, hot sandwich, with gorgeous, oozy cheese.
This is Lo-Dough at it's most simple - a 4 ingredients, a 5 minutes cooking time and an absolute knock-out result.
It was New York's Sussman Volk that was credited with producing the first pastrami sandwich in the United States in 1887. Volk, a New York immigrant from Lithuania claimed he got the recipe from a Romanian friend in exchange for storing the friend's luggage while the friend returned to Romania. According to his descendant, Patricia Volk, he prepared pastrami according to the recipe and served it on sandwiches out of his shop. The sandwich was so popular that Volk converted the shop into a restaurant to sell pastrami sandwiches.
Today, the sandwich is almost iconic as a New York deli favourite. By switching from regular bread to Lo-Dough, you up the fibre, but reduce the carbs and calories dramatically. Plus, by using Eatlean Protein Cheese, you get a massive 45g of protein at only 4% fat. Try it today!
