Pretzel roll deli sandwich

I was inspired to make this from my friend who posted on her blog about enjoying a pretzel roll with a good beer. I thought a nice deli sandwich would be really good on that bread. I went to my local butcher and got some meat. I got crack peppered turkey, pastrami, black forest ham and some smoked chicken. The meat is really good and all comes from Boars head. It is not your average processed slimy deli meat. This meat is so tasty. You can pick from smoked, peppered, low sodium and many more. I usually have to have avocado on my sandwiches. It makes a cold sandwich complete for me. I put a spread of whole grain mustard on the bread. Then I decided on a combo of cracked peppered turkey and a little pastrami. I sliced some red onion and roughly mashed up a half an avocado. I then sliced some trader joes Cheddar melange & Gruyere cheese. This cheese is amazing it is a combo of both kinds. Then I topped it with some lettuce.

I also made some kale chips. I thought that would be a nice healthy side rather than potato chips. The kale chips are easy. Rinse the kale and pat it dry. Then just start tearing the leaves off the stem. Place them on a baking sheet. Drizzle olive oil and mix up the leaves slightly to coat them. Then grind some fresh pepper on top with a sprinkle of salt. Place them in a 300 degree oven and toast them for about 20 minutes. Check them in 10min and turn the pan just to make sure some are not burning. I let them cool and put a nice handful next to my sandwich. It was so good!


  1. I wanna try Kale chips. those sound so good. :)

    1. They are so easy to make! they also taste better than potato chips.

    2. I made them. They are SO good. They do taste way better than potato chips. I need to go buy more Kale. I only bought a bunch to see if I would like it. So are there any other veggies you would recommend doing this with? Also I just bought an eggplant and a butternut squash. Any ideas? I am trying to eat healthy and loss some weight so I am trying all kinds of new things. LOL

      Thanks for your awesome recommendation. :)

    3. Beckee, you can roast butternut squash in the oven. Cut it in half spray a cookie sheet with non stick spray. Put the squash cut side down for 1 hour with your oven at 400. Depending on the size of squash it might take a little longer. You can make so much with roasted butternut squash. Healthy sauces and lots more.
