With St. Patrick’s Day just around the corner, a recipe for a Classic Reuben Sandwich sounded perfect.  This recipe is from Friendship Club’s 1981 Cookbook “Todd Valley Friendship Club Potluck Recipes”.


Classic Reuben Sandwich

8 Slices Rye bread          1 cup Sauerkraut, drained

4 tab. butter                       2 tab. Thousand Island Dressing

1 lb. thinly sliced Corned Beef,                       4 slices Swiss cheese

    from deli or cooked roast




Butter one side of each bread slice. Place bread buttered side down in a large skillet over medium heat. Place 1/4 lb. corned beef on 4 rye bread slices. Top evenly with sauerkraut. Spread dressing on rye bread slices.  Spread dressing on remaining bread slices and top with cheese.  Cook for about 5 minutes or until bread is golden brown and sandwich ingredients are hot.  Close sandwiches and remove from skillet.  Serve hot.  Makes four sandwiches.  Enjoy!!
