Reuben Sandwiches

For our St. Patrick's Day dinner, we had the traditional corned beef, cabbage, potatoes and carrots...my most fave dinner of all! This time I bought a few extra corned beefs to enjoy through out the year and one I cooked up in the crock pot just for the leftovers. I ordered a loaf of marble rye bread from a bakery hoping with the dark rye (pumpernickel?) in it, I'd maybe enjoy rye bread more. Well, plain rye bread is plain rye bread...I'm just not a fan, but do like pumpernickel. Anyways, I added some sauerkraut (the kind from the bag), swiss cheese, thousand island dressing and sliced corned beef then toasted/grilled it all together.

They looked sooo good, and since Mr. was home that day he was treated to a nice lunch. He loved them! Even my little boy liked them!! But not Mommy. That rye bread taste...surprisingly I loved the sauerkraut on them, lol. Maybe if I did toasted sour dough instead.

Reuben Sandwiches
slices of rye (I used marble rye)
sliced corned beef
slices of swiss cheese
sauerkraut, drained and squeezed dry
thousand island dressing

Butter outside slices of rye, add a little thousand Island to the inside of the slices, layer on swiss cheese, sauerkraut and corned beef and another slice of swiss. Griddle cook them (I did them open face) like a grilled cheese sandwich. Carefully place together and enjoy!

Looks delicious. After reading this all I could think about is eating a good Reuben. I had a recipe for some German Rye bread. This was a good reason to try it out. Thanks for sharing. http://thebreadmakers.blogspot.com/
