Reuben sandwiches are shared by Kathy Jo Scott of Hemingford, Nebraska. "My mouth waters just thinking of these sandwiches," confesses Kathy Jo. "I adapted the recipe from one my mother found several years ago."
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 15 min. YIELD:4 servings


  • 12 ounces thinly sliced corned beef
  • 8 slices light or dark rye bread
  • 1 can (8 ounces) sauerkraut, rinsed and well drained

"These were really good. I love Reuben sandwiches. I had to use a gluten free bread instead of rye but it still turned out very tasty. It was a very simple meal and I will definitely be making these again."

I have always shied away from sauerkraut but my hubby loves Reubens so I thought I'd give these a try for St. Patrick's Day. They are actually much better than I expected. The sauerkraut flavor is really mild but it gives the sandwich a nice crunch.
I used muenster cheese as I don't like swiss, and made my own thousand island dressing using equal parts mayo, ketchup and sweet pickle relish.
So easy and full of flavor. I'll definitely put these on my list of regular dinners. Would make a quick and easy lunch, too."

"I love Reuben sandwiches. This is the only way to make them except I use my panini maker instead of a skillet."
