Pastrami and Pickle Soup

Pastrami and Pickle Soup

We’re buried under about a foot of snow here in Boston this morning, and naturally my thoughts go right to a hearty soup. Even if you are snowed in today too, you can probably still make this soup if you can find some pastrami somewhere. If not, just toss in any meat instead. Everything else is pantry staples. This soup is a riff off of a dill pickle soup I once was intrigued by on an episode of Diners Drive-Ins and Dives, that I finally decided to make a version of.

Hot Pastrami Sandwich Dip

Hot Pastrami Sandwich Dip

This dip strains the boundaries of what might or might not be considered a dip. I brought it to a friendsgiving this weekend and it went over pretty well. It was no turducken, but people seemed to like it anyways. I haven’t revisited the sandwich-as-dip series in a while, and I thought a hot pastrami dip would be a great way to bring it back. (Soup Mondays will resume next week).
