This Reuben Sandwich uses leftover corned beef, tangy sauerkraut, melted Swiss cheese, and my signature creamy Russian Dressing to make the most delicious sandwich you've ever had.

For the Homemade Russian Dressing

  • 3 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons sour cream
  • tablespoons ketchup
  • 1 tablespoon pickle juice
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • ½ tablespoon hot sauce, optional, but I recommend it
  • 1 teaspoon grated horseradish from a jar
  • salt and fresh ground pepper, to taste

For the Reuben Sandwich

  • 4 slices rye bread
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • cup Homemade Russian Dressing, you can also use Thousand Island Dressing
  • ½ pound thinly sliced corned beef
  • ½ cup sauerkraut, well drained
  • 8 thin slices Swiss cheese


  • Preheat oven broiler to HIGH.
  • Spread butter on one side of each slice of bread.
  • Place bread, buttered side up, on a baking sheet and toast under the broiler until golden brown.
  • Remove from oven; flip over the bread slices and spread remaining butter over each slice.
  • Set under the broiler and toast until golden brown. Watch it closely because it browns quickly.
  • Remove bread from oven and spread Russian dressing on each slice.
  • Add sauerkraut on two slices of bread.
  • Add sliced corned beef on the other two slices of bread.
  • Add Swiss cheese on top of each slice.
  • Set under the broiler for a couple minutes, or until cheese is melted.
  • Remove from oven and close sandwiches together.
  • Cut in half and serve.
