Reviews forReuben Sandwiches
"Rubens are made with Russian Dressing not Thousand Islands. The only reason people use Thousand Island sdressing was because it was a dollar or two cheaper, Come-on people;e make it right.Thank-you"
"This is a classic! The only way to improve upon this recipe is by using leftover cornbeef."
"This is and always be one of my favorite sandwiches. They are really yum."
"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 might regret saving this recipe...Reuben sandwiches were something I ordered when we went out...because I never made them at home! These are super simple and oh so very delicious!!! I will absolutely make these again...and again!"
"Yum!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."
