  • 8 slices seeded rye bread
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil for frying
  • 24 slices smoked provolone (sliced thin)
  • 4 tsp yellow mustard (or Dijon)
  • 4 dill pickle spears (sliced thin)


  • Heat half the coconut oil on large skillet.
  • Toast one side of each slice of bread. Remove when golden brown and spread mustard on the toasted side. These are tops and bottoms.
  • Add two slices of provolone cheese to half of the bread slices. Add a layer of pickles then another slice of cheese. This will hold the pickles in.
  • Top with the remaining bread slices. Toasted side down.
  • Toast both sides of each sandwich in the remaining coconut oil. Gently squish them with your spatula as they cook.
  • Once golden, remove from skillet and immediately sprinkle lightly with salt.
