We’ve found lately that mascarpone cheese is excellent for making all sorts of delicious mixes. Mascarpone pesto for example we used on a turkey sandwich a few weeks ago. This time we are taking it a notch up, and are making a mascarpone melt with Spanish valdeon cheese and black sesame seeds plus roasted garlic. We use this as a spread for the bread and a topping for the pastrami after melting it in the microwave. Great food !
Blue Cheese Melt Recipe
- 2 tsp mascarpone cheese
- 3 roasted garlic
- 1 tsp blue cheese (We used Spanish valdeon)
- 1 tsp black sesame seeds
Mash the roasted garlic with a fork and then mix in the other ingredient. Heat the blend in a microwave oven for 15-20 seconds until it has just begun melting.
Pastrami Sandwich Recipe
- 1 sesame bagel
- 4 slices of pastrami
- 6 pickled slices of cucumber
- Blue Cheese Melt (from above)
Heat the bagel in a toaster oven, then spread 1/3 of the Blue Cheese Melt on the bread, and add the pastrami slices. Spread the remainder of the melt on top, and finish off with the pickles. Close the sandwich and enjoy while warm.
