Reuben Sandwiches!!

Mr. U LOVES a good Reuben sandwich. Whenever we are eating at a new restaurant that serves them, he always has to try it and see if it’s “the best he’s ever had”. While he has had some really good Reuben’s at restaurants, his still LOVES the way his dad makes them- quick and easy!! Here’s the recipe…

Mr. U's Famous-In-Our-Home Reuben's
2 – 12 oz cans of corned beef
3- 14 ½ oz cans of sauerkraut
8 oz of thin sliced Swiss cheese

In a 9x13 pan that has been sprayed with non-stick spray, empty both cans of corned beef. Spread the corned beef to cover the bottom of the pan. Next, drain the cans of sauerkraut. If you don't drain them very well, the extra “juice” that is in the cans will cause your sandwich to be too “soupy” and very difficult to eat. After you have drained the extra liquid from the sauerkraut, pour the sauerkraut on top of the corned beef and spread it around to cover the pan. Last, layer the cheese all over the top so that every part of the sauerkraut and corned beef is covered. Bake in a 400 degree oven until it starts to bubble a little around the edges and the cheese is melted on top.

This will make 8 good sized sandwiches. Just cut into 8 sections and serve on whatever kind of bread you want (I believe it’s traditionally served on rye bread) and top with mayonnaise, mustard, thousand island or Russian dressing, pickles, or whatever you like on your Reuben sandwich!!!

Mrs U ~ To be honest, I have never heard of this type of sandwich. I don't think I've ever eaten corned beef or sauerkraut. I'm not sure my family would thank me if that's what I made for lunch on Saturday! LOL! But it sounds like your husband enjoys it! :)

HAHA! I can DEFINITELY relate, Deb!! Although I had heard of the sandwich when Mr.U and I married, I had never seen nor eaten one. When his father first made one for me, I thought "You want me to eat THIS?" HA!! And then I tasted it. YUMMMMYY!!! I've been hooked ever since!!

If you are ever with a friend who orders one at a restaurant, ask her for a small bite- you just make enjoy it!!
