You may be thinking to yourself, a Suzzie sandwich? I’ve never heard of a Suzzie sandwich before! Well you would be right about that. I made it up. I figure if some guy can throw together rye bread, pastrami, Swiss and saurkraut and call it a Reuben, then I can throw together white bread, pastrami, Parmesan and egg and call it a Suzzie.
Some of you who follow my blog may be wondering why I didn’t name it after my wife. Well, there is a simple explanation for that. My wife hates it. When I told her my idea, she gave me the most grotesque look. At that point I thought, “Well, guess I’ll be eating this by myself.”
Coincidentally, I had the idea of this sandwich when deciding what to do with Ruben leftovers after my birthday party. The pastrami was sitting there rotting, and I had to do something with it — quick.
Before I explain how to make a “Suzzie Sandwhich” let me warn you. If you are trying to eat healthy, “Run away, and never return” (quoting from The Lion King there). There is fat, fat, fat, and more fat in this sandwich. I don’t eat this everyday.
1 tablespoon butter (or Brummel and Brown if you want to be a little healthier)
1/2 – 1 teaspoon minced garlic
1 -2 large eggs
3 tablespoons heavy cream
1 slice of a good white bread (Pugliese is the perfect bread for this)
2-4 thin slices of pastrami
Parmesan cheese grated
