Everyone, have a great Monday! I know Mondays can be a bit boring and are not everyone’s favorite day of the week, but I hope I can brighten your day with this fun giveaway.

The nice people at Musselman’s sent over a jar of their Apple Butter for me to try. After much research and brainstorming, I decided to use it in a savory recipe.

I was a little skeptical about using it for these open-faced sandwiches, but I was wrong. It gave these sandwiches a wonderful depth of flavor; the combination of flavors was incredible, with the Dijon combining the tanginess of the mustard and a hint of sweetness of the apple butter.

Oh, and the best part is? Musselman’s will also send one lucky Damn Delicious reader their very own Apple Butter along with a few simple recipes and a multi-purpose bowl that you can mix and serve up at your next football gathering.


  • Three ciabatta rolls, halved
  • Musselman’s Apple Butter 6 Tablespoons
  • Four tablespoons of Dijon mustard
  • 1 1/4 pounds deli-sliced pastrami
  • 1/4 cup white cheddar cheese shredded
  • Chop fresh chives for garnish


Preheat oven to broil. Line a baking pan with parchment paper and set it aside.

Spread Musselman’s Apple Butter on each roll. Add the pastrami, cheese, and mustard.

Place in oven and broil for about 2 minutes until cheese is melted.

Sprinkle with chives and serve immediately.
