Reuben Eggs Benedict

Prep Time 20 min
Cook Time 15 min
Yield 4 servings.

Ingredients

  • 4 large eggs
  • Coarsely ground pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 2 pretzel hamburger buns, split
  • 4 slices Swiss cheese (3/4 ounce each)
  • 1/3 cup sauerkraut, rinsed, drained well and chopped
  • 1/4 pound sliced deli corned beef
  • Prepared Thousand Island salad dressing

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Heat a large skillet coated with cooking spray over medium-high heat. Break eggs, 1 at a time, into pan; sprinkle with coarsely ground pepper. Reduce heat to low. Cook to desired doneness, turning after whites are set, 2-3 minutes. Sprinkle with salt; keep warm.
  2. While eggs are cooking, hollow out split pretzel buns. Toast buns on a baking sheet or oven rack, 3-4 minutes. Top with cheese; return to oven until cheese is melted.
  3. To assemble, layer a fourth of the sauerkraut, a fourth of the corned beef and 1 egg on each bun half. Drizzle with salad dressing.
