Reuben Sandwich

Classic sandwich made with a combination of corned beef, Swiss cheese, sauerkraut, Thousand Island dressing, and rye bread.


  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 2 slices of deli rye swirl bread
  • 3 tbsp Thousand Island dressing
  • 6 oz corned beef sliced thinly
  • 2 slices Swiss cheese
  • 1/4 cup sauerkraut liquid squeezed out


  • Preheat a medium cooking pan over medium-low heat. Melt butter in the pan and spread it around evenly.
  • Place slices of bread in the pan and spread Thousand island dressing on both slices.
  • Squeeze liquid from sauerkraut and spread it on one slice of bread. Place two slices of Swiss cheese on the other slice of bread. 
  • Layer corned beef over cheese evenly. Let the bread crisp and ingredients heat up. Once cheese is melted, use a spatula to carefully place one slice over the other to close the sandwich.
  • Cook for a couple more minutes on both sides, until bread is golden. Press gently.
  • Take the sandwich out of the pan, cut in half, and serve right away.
