Lindsey Joy Smith, The Chipper Chef has a recipe for a Reuben sandwich that is perfect for the upcoming holiday.

(Makes 4 fabulous reubens)


  • 8 slices of rye bread
  • 8 teaspoons butter
  • 8 Tbs. of Thousand Island Dressing*
  • 1 c. drained sauerkraut
  • 8 slices of Swiss cheese
  • 1 lb. of super thinly sliced corned beef


  1. Butter one side of 4 slices of bread.
  2. Place the 4 slices of the buttered bread onto a cold skillet to assemble your sandwiches.
  3. Spread 1 Tbs. of dressing onto the bread slices on the skillet, then add the sauerkraut, a slice of Swiss, the corned beef, and the second slice of Swiss on top.
  4. Spread 1 Tbs. of the dressing onto the remaining slices of bread and place on top of the sandwiches.
  5. Butter the tops of the sandwiches.
  6. Turn the skillet on to low/medium heat. Cook the first side until the bread gets lightly browned and crisp. Flip the Sandwiches over
  7. Weigh the sandwiches down with a cookie sheet to promote the cheese melting, perfect bread crust and warm corned beef.

Corned beef and St. Paddy`s day go hand in hand. This sandwich is tasty, easy to make and will leave you feeling like a lucky leprechaun.
