This idea for a beet pastrami originated as a “smoked salmon” substitute for my everything bagel and herb & garlic cream cheese recipe, but it didn’t quite fit. And it also seemed like a waste of a perfectly great recipe! So I made it into it’s own sandwich and I think this is a much better way to eat your beets.
And no, I don’t plan on making carrot lox anytime soon either. Have you seen the carrot dog video?! Oh, brother.
Anyhoo, focus! These sandwiches have it all – sweet, savory, spicy, tangy, creamy, and crunch! You’re going to melt when you sink your teeth into these. If you’re looking for the thousand island dressing I took it straight outta the hot for food cookbook, but you can also find a similar version here.
Check out how to make them in the video below or keep scrolling for the recipe.
