"My mom has always made this slightly different than the usual Reuben. I typically 'load' it, we don't like skimpy sandwiches. It is a huge hit; my kids, friends and especially my husband loves it!!" — ROBINNOFTZ

light rye bread with caraway seeds
deli sliced corned beef
1 1/2 pounds
thinly sliced deli chicken breast
sliced Muenster cheese
1 (16 ounce) jar
sauerkraut, rinsed and well drained
creamy salad dressing, e.g. Miracle Whip ™
my original recipe stated to use sandwich spread, more like thousand island. I think you will find this makes it better than the Miracle Whip.
My son-in-law made this and everyone seemed like it, but the sodium content was much too high for my reduced sodium blood pressure diet. What a shame.
This was fabulous! I used sourdough bread instead of rye and my husband said it was the best rueben he's ever had. It was perfect!
Yes Robin, this is truly a man's man kind of sandwich! I too used Thousand Island dressing in lieu of the Miracle Whip and it added the tang that's typically associated with a reuben sandwich. Your mom did a great job and we thank her!!
I didn't care for this at all. Sorry.
This was very good. I like it alot better than the traditional reuben and I really like Reubens ! I used pastrami in place of the corned beef because that is what I had on hand. Will absolutely make again. My kids even liked it and they are not big reuben lovers. Thanks Mom ! It was Great.
This is a delicious recipe. I used low fat Thousand Island dressing and sprinkled lemon pepper on the buttered outsides of the sandwich before grilling-- my husband LOVES this sandwich.
