Reuben Sandwiches with Homemade Russian Dressing


So you made some corn beef and cabbage and now have a ton of leftovers. What can you do with the leftovers? Sure you could make a hash but have you ever had a Reuben sandwich? You take some rye bread, Russian dressing, Swiss cheese and corned beef and toast it like a grilled cheese and you have one of best sandwiches around. Now if you don't like rye you can use sourdough. If you don't like Swiss cheese try provolone. Also you can put sauerkraut on these and it's killer. If you have any questions please let me know.

- 8 slices rye bread
- Russian dressing (recipe follows)
- 8 slices Swiss cheese
- 12 slices leftover corned beef from here or store bought equivalent

The Process
1. Take the pieces of bread and cover with the Russian dressing. Then cover each piece with a cheese slice. Then take a large saute pan and heat up the meat over medium high heat. Add 3 slices of the corned beef to half of the bread pieces then cover with the other half of the bread.
2. Take a large cast iron skillet and heat over medium heat. When the pan is hot spray the pan down with a liberal amount of Pam. Then add the sandwiches to the pan and toast until the bottom is golden brown. Flip the sandwiches and do the same thing. Remove from pan, slice in half and eat.
3. Enjoy!
