"Wonderful! Husband thought he was having a Reuben, no! This is a great sandwich! I added the Russian dressing on mine to try "suelynnes" suggestion for the New Yorker. Great both ways! Thank you Marilou for sharing!!"

"I made a corn beef brisket in the am and had these sandwiches for dinner. Delish :) The bread burnt in the broiler. Keep a close eye on it!!!! Or you could just toast the bread and put sandwich in the microwave for a brief time!!!"

"This is a keeper. I love to make Reuben's for the guy who loves them. The rest of us can't handle the kraut. Maybe, just maybe I won't have to make a 2 meal dinner for one nights meal."

"This is super delicious, but I add a teaspoon or two of sugar to the coleslaw as well. My husband won't eat a Rueben, but this he loves."
