1 sheet puff pastry, thawed

2 tablespoons canola oil

2 large onions, sliced into half-moon rings

1 teaspoon kosher salt

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F.

  2. Roll out the puff pastry to about 10″x12″.

  3. In a large skillet, heat canola oil on medium high heat. Sauté onions until soft. Add in salt, followed by deli slices and simmer on low until heated through. Set aside and cool slightly.

  4. In a small bowl mix, BBQ sauce, mayonnaise, and mustard. Spread over the pastry leaving a ½ inch border around all the sides.

  5. Place the deli/onion mixture over the sauce. Roll the dough up like a jelly roll and place seam-side-down on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.

  6. Brush deli roll with egg wash and sprinkle with sesame seeds. Bake for 30 minutes until golden brown.

Naomi's Take

Nothing stays the test of time better than a classic favorite that can easily be updated with a new twist! Choose your flavor preferences and select from a variety of Empire Kosher® turkey and chicken deli slices for the perfect meal, snack or appetizer occasion.

Here, I’ve paired Empire’s turkey pastrami and salami with sweet and savory flavors, making it an absolute go to – especially for this time of year. Enjoy! (And feel free to try new combinations each month.)
