Rueben on Rye Sandwich Recipe
  • Butter one side of each slice of bread. On 4 slices of bread, buttered side down, arrange slices of Swiss cheese, corned beef, sauerkraut and dressing. Cover with the remaining slices of bread buttered side up.
  • In a large non-stick skillet over medium high heat, place the sandwiches butter side down and brown on each side until cheese starts to melt.
  • Slice in half and serve. Garnish with a pickle. (If you don't have Thousand Island dressing on hand, you may use a mixture of 1/2 cup mayonnaise, 1 tablespoon of ketchup and salt and pepper to taste.)
