Don’t you think a Reuban Sandwich should be Irish?!
The Reuben was actually invented by a German immigrant Arnold Reuben, who sold the sandwiches at his deli in New York City. I like to make a hot Reuben Sandwich with the leftovers from enjoying our annual St. Patties Day Corned Beef and Cabbage dinner. YUM!
- 2 slices marbled rye bread, toasted
- 5 oz corned beef, thinly sliced
- 3 oz swiss cheese, thinly sliced
- 2 oz sauerkraut
- 1 oz thousand island dressing
- Toast both slices of bread in a toaster or in the oven broiler.
- Place swiss cheese on one slice bread, broil on high to melt, remove and set aside.
- Spread thousand island dressing on the second slice of bread.
- In a hot skillet over medium high heat, place corned beef, saute to heat through.
- Place half of the meat on each slice of bread.
- Put sauerkraut in skillet, heat through, place on bottom side of bread, finish with top side of sandwich.
- Enjoy warm.
Reuben Sandwiches are classic that is perfect to eat at St. Patricks Day AND I’m not just saying that because I’m Irish 🙂
Hope your week is going well… so glad it’s Thursday!
