  • 3/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 3 tablespoons chili sauce
  • 1 can (14 ounces) sauerkraut, rinsed and well drained
  • 2 cups shredded Swiss cheese
  • 12 ounces sliced deli corned beef
  • 20 slices rye bread
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • Thousand Island salad dressing, optional


  1. In a large bowl, combine the mayonnaise, chili sauce, sauerkraut and Swiss cheese. Spread over 20 slices of bread, about 1/4 cup on each. Top half of the slices with corned beef; top with remaining slices to form sandwiches. Lightly butter the outside of sandwiches. Toast on a hot griddle for 4-5 minutes on each side or until golden brown. Serve with Thousand Island dressing if desired.

Corned Beef Sandwich Tips

What can I use instead of Thousand Island dressing for my corned beef sandwich?

Besides using store-bought or homemade Thousand Island dressing, you could also use Russian dressing on your corned beef sandwich.

What else can I add to my corned beef sandwich?

Besides the classic fixings like Swiss cheese and sauerkraut, you can also add caramelized onions, pickles or pickle relish.

How should I cut corned beef for my corned beef sandwich?

If you pick up deli corned beef, it will already be sliced for you, but if you're making homemade corned beef then you should cut against the grain for your sandwiches. Otherwise, feel free to use shredded corned beef as well!
