Deli Roll

I never heard of deli rolls until I hit the kosher Shabbos scene. It was apparent that everyone I visited knew how to make them. So I figured I'd better learn if I wanted to be really kosher. I found out later that the dish has no real connection to Judaism, no mystical powers or deep significance. It just seems to have become a Shabbos standard in many homes. For a hint of sweetness, brush the deli roll with duck sauce instead of egg.


  • Prep Time : 5 min min
  • Cook Time : 20 min
  • Ready Time : 25 min


8 servings


  • 1 frozen puff pastry sheet (from a 17.3-ounce package), defrosted
  • 1/3 cup deli mustard (Such as Gold's)
  • 4 ounces (1/4-pound) sliced pastrami
  • 4 ounces (1/4-pound) sliced turkey
  • 4 ounces (1/4 pound) sliced corned beef
  • 1 egg, beaten well
  • 2 tablespoons sesame seeds


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly grease a 12 x 15-inch cookie sheet with non-stick cooking spray.
  2. Unfold puff pastry sheet onto prepared cookie sheet.
  3. Spread mustard over pastry sheet.
  4. Place meats over sheet in layers, first pastrami, then turkey and corned beef.
  5. Roll dough as for a jelly roll, place seam side down and brush with beaten egg.
  6. Sprinkle with sesame seeds.
  7. Bake, uncovered, at 350 degrees for 45 minutes to 1 hour, until slightly browned and flaking. Let stand 5 minutes before slicing and serving.

  1. I’ve made this, and the duck sauce on top and deli mustard inside really add depth to this classic recipe!

    i love Deli Roll but how do i stop having raw pastry right in the middle of the roll. i have tried cooking it on a lower temperature for longer but i doesnt work. any ideas?

    • Hey Penny! You share a common complaint which is not easy to trouble shoot, but I actually have 2 ideas for you 1. do as you said — cook it longer at a lower temp — even longer than you have before and loosely cover with foil so the outside doesn’t burn – uncover at the end to crisp the exterior. 2. make individual deli roll pockets — like a boureka — cut the puff pastry into a rectangle smear with mustard or spread/sauce of your choice layer the deli on half of the rectangle (or over the entire thing if you like it busting with deli) and fold it over on itself to form a square pocket/boureka-style and seal with the tines of a fork. proceed as instructed above baking for about 18 to 20 minutes or until puff pastry is golden, flaky and cooked through.

        Slichah! The unflaky dough in the middle is the best part, a guilty pleasure that almost reminds me of cheese.

        • LOL!!!!! hysterical and so true. I love raw – doughy stuff: cookie dough, even slightly underdone challah.

    we cut it up into small squares the size of a quarter of a cold cut each and rolled them up diagonally. we used regular mustard with a little honey. It’s delicious and has become a family favourite. :)

  7. Which type of dough is best used here in Israel?
