 Reuben Burgers
A REUBEN sandwich was always my first choice when eating out - until I found this recipe in a local newspaper. After that, my family could eat reubens anytime. Our daughters used to make these when they were in charge of preparing a meal. I usually had all the ingredients on hand, so it didn't take long to get everything on the table. -Betty Ruenholl, Syracuse, Nebraska
