I came up with this recipe as a way to make a sandwich feed a large group at once. The braid design always impresses the guests at our parties. —Kellie Mulleavy, Lambertville, Michigan

MY REVIEW

"I have made a stromboli with italian ingredients for years, so I decided to change it up and make a Reuben stromboli using this recipe as a guide. I used a frozen bread dough from the supermarket freezer section and did not make the braid. I also left off the onions & dill as others have done because I felt it wasn't going to add to the classic Reuben flavor. It was a hit, different & delicious. I put out extra dressing & mustard for dipping, but it had enough of the flavor inside that it didn't really need anything extra. Assemble it right on your parchment covered cookie sheet so you don't have to transfer it. Keeper recipe. Corned beef isn't just for St Patrick's Day!"

"Tasty but will not use crescent rolls to make again. Way too thin and fell apart easy."
