"Rubens are made with Russian Dressing not Thousand Islands. The only reason people use Thousand Island s

dressing was because it was a dollar or two cheaper, Come-on people;e make it right.Thank-you"

"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."

"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."
