A Reuben Sandwich is a delicious and easy dinner idea. It’s a great way to use up leftover Crockpot Corned Beef or you can grab some sliced corned beef at the deli.
What ingredients are in a Reuben Sandwich?
Reuben’s are made with sliced corned beef, Swiss cheese, Thousand Island Dressing, and Sauerkraut on rye bread.
How to make a Reuben Sandwich:
Start by laying out your bread and place your Swiss cheese on top of each slice of bread.
Then add some Thousand Island dressing and sauerkraut.
Then your sliced corned beef.
Using both hands flip one of the slices onto the other making sandwich.
Heat up some butter in a skillet and toast both sides for five minutes and serve!
How to make a Reuben Sandwich in the oven:
If you want to make a larger batch of sandwiches, using the oven to toast your bread may be a faster way to go. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees, slather one side of the rye bread with butter, and place the butter side down on a sheet pan. Top each piece of bread with Swiss cheese, and corned beef, and bake for 10-15 minutes until the cheese has melted. Then finish each sandwich with Thousand Island dressing and sauerkraut.

Thousand Island dressing is just made of simple everyday ingredients you probably have in your pantry. Just mix 1/2 cup of mayonnaise, 1/4 cup pickles, 2 tablespoons of ketchup, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1/4 teaspoon pepper, 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder, 1/4 teaspoon onion powder, 1/4 teaspoon paprika, a dash of cayenne pepper, and 1/2 teaspoon of sugar together.
