Original Reuben Sandwich

Serves 2


2 tablespoons Thousand Island dressing

1/4 cup chilled, well-drained sauerkraut

2 slices dark rye bread

2 teaspoons soft butter

4 slices Swiss or Emmanthaler cheese (3 ounces)

4 slices kosher-style corned beef (6 ounces)


Mix dressing with sauerkraut. Spread outside of bread slices with soft butter. Place bread, buttered side down, side by side. Place Swiss cheese on each slice of bread; place corned beef on only one slice, and the kraut dressing on the beef. Assemble the sandwich to be grilled on a sandwich grill or skillet. If a skillet is used, press down with a spatula until sandwich is browned and the cheese oozes. Serve immediately.
