Whether you like a bit sweeter or slightly sharper - is a question of personal taste.
Brush the bread from on both sides with butter and toast until golden brown on both sides under the grill or in a pan. Set bread aside.
Grill the Pastrami on both sides of the grill plate, add the drained sauerkraut and stir together over a low heat. After cutting the pastrami and sauerkraut mixture into the desired sandwich size, put together and cover with 2 slices of cheese.
Close the lid of the grill or cover with a pot lid or a metal bowl and melt the cheese for about two minutes.
In the meantime, spread the bread with the "1000 Island Dressing" and place it on the grill plate.
Place the pastrami cheese package on one slice. Place 2 slices of sandwich gherkins on top of the melted cheese.
Top with the second slice and heat through at a low heat. Fix with toothpicks, slice into halves and serve immediately warm.
