There’s something perfect about the combination of fresh, thinly sliced deli turkey and pastrami together. The two make for a delicious sandwich when made the traditional way, but here’s a way to make it even better… make a turkey, pastrami and swiss melt sandwich right on your Foreman Grill!

Just like in gourmet sandwich shops, the bread comes out toasted golden brown, the cheese gooey and melted, the the flavors of the pastrami and turkey come together to make one of the most delicious sandwiches you’ll ever have. The flavors are so delicious together, you won’t even need mayo or mustard. Of course, you can add if desired to your taste.

This easy recipe uses only a few basic ingredients. Use your favorite white or whole wheat bread, some deli or packaged turkey and pastrami and your favorite swiss cheese.


  • 2oz of sliced turkey breast
  • 2oz of sliced pastrami
  • 2 slices of swiss cheese
  • 2 pieces of bread (regular white bread works great!)
  • margarine, olive oil or butter flavored cooking spray

Total time:7 minPrep time:5 min – Cook time:2 min – Serves:1 people


Preheat your George Foreman Grill with the lid closed for at least 5 minutes. Assemble your sandwich with best results by folding slices in half when placing on bread slices. Have the cheese slices on opposite sides of the meat to get that gooey goodness throughout the whole sandwich. Use margarine or olive oil or cooking spray to coat the outside of both slices of bread. Doesn’t have to be mush, just enough to coat. Place on Foreman Grill and close lid. Keep an eye on it after about 90 seconds. Remove sandwich when it’s golden brown. At this point you can now add mayonnaise or mustard.

Slice in half and serve with kettle chips and a good kosher pickle.

    This is an excellent sandwich. But you should be shamed by suggesting white bread. At least go with sourdough, but really a good marble rye will make it soooo good! Mayo, not needed, but a nice brown mustard is helpful.
    As for the good kosher pickle, yes, but I went crazy a couple of times and put the pickle (Sliced thin) in the sandwich. MMMMmmmm.

    I must agree with Dave J !!! I did our sandwiches with marble rye, DELICIOUS !!! No mayo or mustard, however a little thousand island was Perfect !!! YUM !!! Was able to make 3 at a time on our GF fat reducing grilling machine, that must be around 12-15 years old, and Still works Great !!!!! ❤️
