“Panini and grilled cheese sandwiches are nothing new but for some reason you rarely, if ever, see Muenster cheese used on them. Muenster cheese reminds me of Germany which makes me happy. Combine that with caramelized onions, roast beef, pastrami and a homemade ’1000 island‘ style dressing instead of the sugary store bought kind on toasted buttery sourdough and you’re talking about a seriously delicious sandwich”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Sandwich dressing.
  2. In a bowl, combine the mayonnaise, sour cream, ketchup, relishes, onion, garlic, lemon juice, balsamic vinegar, Tabasco, and black pepper to taste. Mix well! Makes about 2 cups dressing.
  3. Assemble the sandwich.
  4. For each Panini: on one slice of bread, spread sandwich dressing, while on the other, spread aioli or mayo. Layer Muenster cheese, roast beef, and pastrami, then top with pickles and caramelized onions. Close the sandwich. Brush outer sides of sandwich generously with melted Unsalted Tillamook Butter. Press on Panini grill or toast in pan or on flattop grill. Serve with garlic parmesan fries, sweet potato fries or small side salad.
